Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 30, 2013
THOUGHTS: Decent chocolate stout but nothing all that special. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a dark brown that was basically opaque black in the glass with a large, tan head that mostly diminished and left good lacing. The aroma had heavy roasted malt and dark chocolate; moderate coffee; and hints of licorice. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and moderately bitter; while the finish was moderately sweet and bitter. There was chocolate, roasted malt, hints of licorice and light coffee. The medium body was creamy with fizzy carbonation and a metallic finish.

Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a murky dark brown with AMPLE light beige head and very lively carbonation. Smells fairly sweet and malty with a little tartness. Tastes like it smells with some metallic notes and a below average mouthfeel for the style. Infected? Let’s hope so.

Dark with a medium sized tan head. Roasted malt and cocoa, lightly sweet, not bad but not particularly a standout stout.

dmac (4217) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 4, 2013
12oz bottle of meh. Poured a thinner density dark brown body with a huge frothy light beige head that lasts and lasts. That was the best part of this beer and the body was too thin. Aroma of super lightly soured chocolate, grains, cereal, fake sweetener. Thinner watery body with overly aggressive carbonation and a sour chocolate finish. Flavor is not even as good as the aroma with old stale dark bread, bad chocolate. old sweetener and lactose along with a hint of olive skins. Blah drain pour.

Nice beer. Pours almost black with a thin head. The aroma has a bit of chocolate and a lot of roast malt. The flavor is sweet with a bit of chocolate and the roast malts. Fairly light for the style.

ben4321 (4100) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 3/1/13

Aroma: The aroma is fairly light with some roasted malts, chocolate, and a bit of earth
Appearance: Pours a dark brown-black color with a thick froth of beige-brown head and coating lace
Flavor: The flavor is the same with sweet malts, chocolate, and some metallic notes on the finish
Palate: The body is fairly light for the style, a touch watery, and with a fairly short duration
Overall Impression: It is not completely terrible, but not a very exciting one. The nose is fine, but kind of dull, the taste is similar to the nose, but not as good, the body is watery, but at least it has a nice looking pour.
