22. Pours black with a loose and creamy tan ring of moussy foam. Sheets of soft lace. Mild sweet chocolate and caramel nose. Creamy medium body, almost velvety. Soft carb. Chocolate and caramel back on the mid palate. Long sweet finish. Nice, without flaw, a little overly sweet.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On nitro at Aces and Ales. Nearly black with a thin, nearly non existent head. Oats and roasted malt aroma leads into a full slightly sweet flavor. Mild carbonation but good body. Finish has plenty of coffee and ends clean.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Lighter stout. Nice mouthfeel. Lingering dryness. Flavor is not in your face; not a full bodied stout for sure, but not too shabby.

I am just getting over a cold so I am not getting much in my nose - some roasted malt, molasses, and coffee - dark brown/almost black pour - rich flavors of roasted malt with some raisin and brown sugar.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Release #23, 22oz bottle: Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a pillowy froth of khaki head. Has a lightly sweet dark malty nose with some milk chocolate and mild roast. Starts with pretty good fullness and lightly toasted caramel malty sweetness with a touch of molasses and chocolate with some bittering hops showing up near the finish. Pretty true to style and certainly drinkable.

From notes - Dark, deep brown pour with one finger head. Smells of roasted malts, light smoke, rich, sweet malt and light caramel notes. Flavor is light smoke, roasty, light bitter chocolate, and dark coffee. Medium body, but pretty smooth.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Poured A dark brown liquid topped with thick lather of shaving cream like foam. Aroma is rich with roasted down dark malts that stimulates my nose and intrigues my interest as to how it tastes. The drink is thick and creamy like half and half or buttermilk and almost taste somewhat lactic or milky too while a notice of dark malts hide in the distant background. There is little sweetness as well which makes for a lacking sweet stout and a disappointment in the end.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Huh, interesting--a sweet/oatmeal stout. I didn’t sense that when I drank it. Rather that getting that, I sensed much more of the burnt, roasted, and tobacco (cigarette ashes) from it, leading to a somewhat bitter finish and a feeling that this wasn’t especially satisfying as a mocha/chocolate experience. Fine, but needs more balance. Bottle.
