4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the A2M ranger himself: Sean. Pours out a dark black color with a tan head that comes from the bottom. The nose is full of roasted coffee and almost a sweet smelling sugar with it. Kind of like a milk stout, but not repulsive like they are. Taste is smooth and rich, very chocolately but not overly sweet. No alcohol detected, and dangerously easy to drink. A really good beer, in a typically under appreciated style. Good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz - thanks Yonker65 - Aroma of burnt oats and roasted chocolate malts. Appealing with cocoa, lacto and just a touch of hops. Pours black with a small brown ring head and good lacing. Flavor is a mild match to the aroma. Palate is sticky and ashy. A tasty stout.

Bottle. Poured thick and dark. Initial aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. The roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee really stand out in the taste. Smooth.

Bitter chocolate smell. Looks great. Pretty bitter flavor. Chocolate flavor too. But there’s also a weird flavor that I can’t figure out.Maybe it’s the oats but I really have no idea?

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark colored with a minimal head. Has a nice body without being overly thick. Smooth and dry with hints of dark chocolate, oats, and a bit of coffee. The thing that catches me with this beer is that the hops are well pronounced on the back end, and they tend to dry it out a bit. If hops aren’t your thing, this isn’t for you, but I find it to be an interesting version of the style.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On Tap. Deep black with a thin dark brown head. Aroma is of roasted malt and chocolate. Espresso and chocolate notes give the beer a smooth fantastic flavor. There is a little bitterness, but just enough. The hops in fact prevent the malt from being overpowering. I believe the Dragonstooth Stout is a terrific well-balanced stout, as long as it is not served too cold!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark brown with dense tan head. Roasted malt, hops, chocolate and roasted coffee. The roasted coffee part stands out quite a bit. I thought the mouthfeel was slightly thin, with medium carbonation.

on tap-pours a light brown head that laces and black color. Aroma is dark malt-chocolate/molasses, roasty. Taste is dark malt-chocolate/molasses, roasty, some coffee. Less hops and slightly fuller body than the porter[as the styles usually indicate]. Still nice even though not my style.
