4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into a pint glass. Release #17, 5.6% ABV.
4.0 A: Black color. Two fingers of creamy tan head. Retention is about average and a thick ring of lacing is left.
4.5 S: Supple roastiness, lactose, vanilla, and coffee. Grainy malts. Plenty going on here and it all works well together. Seems to be a well made milk stout.
4.0 T: Tastes great too, but has less power than the nose. Again it has roastiness, lactose, vanilla, chocolate, and coffee. Grainy malts. Very tasty beer.
4.0 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Good creaminess for how light it is. Well done.
4.5 D: Great stout. Shows that you donít need a huge ABV to pack a stout full of flavor.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Roasted nuts, coffee, molasses and chocolate come through on the aroma. Darkened mahogany in color with a thin foam top. Flavor is roasted coffee, nuts, chocolate and some oats. Carbonation is decent and body is light. Overall, pretty decent brew with a primarily coffee flavor. A little thin and a little watery. Nevertheless, itís got some decent drinkability. B- rating.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Total Wine, Fairfax 650ml ($5ish): Pours a dark brown with a very light brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, along with a bit of burntness, and some chocolate. Taste is very minimally sweet. Roasted malts are what is going on for the most part with a burnt finish. This is hardly a sweet stout. I do not know who claimed that. There is also a cheap tin coffee taste up in this. This is good, but in no way outstanding.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the House Wine EPIC beer tasting on 04/18/2012: This beer is black with a medium tan head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Roasty aroma of malt and coffee. Medium body with a toasty malt character and notes of mild coffee, chocolate and a touch of hops. The finish is roasty with a sweet malty aftertaste. Decent overall.
