3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from the bottle a very dark brown with a reddish tint. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor is semisweet with chocolate and a bit spicy. Odd. It’s complex and interesting, and I would drink it again, but I won’t seek it out and buy it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle into glass. Smokey, chicory coffee nose, which carries through in this full bodied stout with a perfectly smooth finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
FROM NOTES: July 1, ’12
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a DFH glass.
A: A yeast smell on the nose with some dark malts, but not really a coffee smell.
A: Pours mostly black with some ruby highlights and a two-finger off-white head. The fizzy head quickly depletes into minimal lacing.
T: Better than the nose, but still short on the chicory part of chicory stout. Opens with a dark fruit type of flavor and finishes dry and bitter.
P: Medium bodied and a maybe over a bit to carbonated for the style.
O: A very average and drinkable stout, but average is not what I expected from DFH.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 Bottle: seemingly thick, dark, & black with hints of brown at the edges. The quickly dissipating, light-tan head is made of big bubbles and flees pretty quickly. Aroma is full of real chocolates, deep chocolate candies, bittersweet cocoa beans, & some roasted malt. A bit sweet, & even a touch smoky. Taste is roasted malt up front with some cocoa beans, light coffee, heavy floral hops, & a bit of chicory-like smokiness. Thin mouth feel, much thinner than it appeared. Not a bad stout, just fairly boring overall... merely okay.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours coffee-black, aroma and taste is iced coffee with melted drak chocolate added. Black licorice and chicory is there. How could anyone pick up St. John’s Wort? A little hidden supplement for ya’ll. Great color, great with any Mexican dish with mole sauce!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Looks pretty dark. Smells like chocolate, syrup, coffee. Tastes pretty bitter, like coffee beans, a bit like root beer and burnt popcorn. Medium body and carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours very dark, near black, with about a finger of head. The head is a slightly tan color that settles quickly without much lacing. A very strong odor of coffee, roasted malts, bitter chocolate, slightly damp earthy woody note. Tastes of coffee and bitter chocolate, a little thin, but with an overall pleasant finish.
