3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 ounce bottle, Release #15, Brewed on 1/19/2012, Packaged 2/2/2012, 5.6% ABV. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. It smells like roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, dark fruit and some molasses. It tastes like roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, coffee, caramel malt and molasses. It’s a little more sweet than bitter tasting. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick and creamy, and is also well carbonated. I think it’s a good stout overall. At just $4.99 a bottle, I’d buy it again. It’s certainly worth a try at that price, although I’d like to try a fresher bottle next time.

Pours a dark brown with ample tan head. Aroma is lightly of coffee and chocolate. Taste of malt, slightly sweet taste of mocha. Smooth and quite drinkable. Not a great stout, but solidly OK. A close thumbs up, mainly because I like stouts.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle opens with a loud hiss. Pours a dark chestnut brown color with a massive, frothy light beige head that fills up half of the glass. Large chunks of soapy lacing left behind. Looks like it’s infected.
Metallic cardboard aroma with sybtle underlying roasted malt. Definitely smells infected.
Yep, a cometely infected, terrible mess. Overly carbonation wth strong mettalic chemicals and cardboard. Undrinkable disaster.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark brown with a dissipating tan head and aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is sweet, of roasted malt, chocolate, and caramel with a short finish. Flavor is light for a stout and therefore lacks some flavor.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bomber, not quite opaque. Thin beige head. A pretty nice moderate ABV Stout. Roasty chocolate tones, Not much hop flavor, maybe a little for balance. Balanced this one is, a nice amount of depth, but still very drinkable. Like the description states: somewhere between Cream, Dry, and Foreign Stout. RIght on, solid offering.
