3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This stout poured a deep black colour with a big, tan coloured, foamy head. Kind of odd its not creamier. To the nose there are scents of cocoa, wine, light coffee and roasted malt. First sip was slightly creamy with way too much carbonation for a stout. Roasted flavours with hints of cocoa and toast. Finish is smokey with a thin palate.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma of cocoa mulch and coffee (maxwell house that is) Basic brown to black appearance, seems very oily. Flavor is a mainly bitter, with dull nutrisweetness at finish. Thin for stout, somewhat slimy. A disappointment when expectations are high, but about what I expected for the brewer and price point

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
This was one of the worst stouts I’ve ever had. Taste and overall palate were absent, completely. Utterly disappointing from start to finish. If your offered this, pass on it.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Dark brew iwth tan head. Aroma of waek raosted malts. Taste is slightly sweet malt at the start with a little roasted malt / coffee towards the end. Very light bodied with a thin palate. Weak and inoffensive, not a particularly well done stout.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A solid stout. Purs dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma is normal for a stout. Good stout flavor. I bought a variety case for $25 and was a good bang-for-your-buck beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep brown cloudy body and thin, light tan head. Toast, cheap coffee, ’zoethout’ and roasted grains. Not overly rich. Watery feel, bit thin on the tongue. Some cream and a roasted end. Okay. (12oz bottle on Florida trip)

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle for the sampler case. This is a fair to good summer stout that won’t weigh you down with heaviness or body. Flavors are all there and you can’t beat the price (at least in Pittsburgh where a case sells for $24.99)

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark pour but not black. Thick head. Nose offers little. Soft chocolate hints. Taste is the same. Soft cocoa and toffee. Not very rich or flavorful but easy drinking. Nothing great but a stout that doesn't sit heavy

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours silky black with a small off white head. Aroma is mostly lightly roasted malts. Taste is thin in body, lightly roasted malts. Fairly boring.
