3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: near black, short, creamy tan head shrinking to a thick collar, minimal lacing. Aroma: strong notes of cold-pressed coffee, dark chocolate, some soy sauce and a bit of licorice. Taste: as the aroma indicates, with bitter, slightly acidic coffee most prominent. Finish: long finish, a bit acidic and astringent, very roasty. Notes: Loved the palate--smooth and silky. Coffee was just a tad on the wrong side of the scales, with too much acidity--that’s the only thing that kept this from being amazing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an inky, opaque black with a dense light brown head which lingers......aroma is coffee, chocolate.....taste is burnt chocolate, coffee grounds, sweet then dries a touch in the finish but still overwhelming coffee....needs a touch more complexity.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear near black with light passing as a dark ruby hue when backlit. A dark tan head fades to the edge fairly quickly, leaving barely any lacing. Aroma is overall mild, but complex: chocolate malt, cocoa, bittersweet chocolate syrup, and coffee in the form of mocha. Flavor is same, and very rich for a 6.7%. Mild dark cherry tang in the finish, which is very nice. Medium bodied, active carbonation, a great beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The overpowering roastiness of this stout just kicks you in the teeth. It's too much. Even for a roasty stout. Sorry.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2014 Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a black color with a small foamy tan head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was fairly strong brewed coffee and a bit of wood. The flavor was fairly strong brewed coffee, wood and an acidic presence. Medium length finish. Medium body. Ok.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
4-pack from Nick’s of Clinton.
the beer is opaque, sporting a near black body and a half inch of beige head. The aroma offers roast, coffee, bready malt. Roast and stout character lead the charge, with coffee playing a supporting role. Rich and dark, with a mild hop presence and perhaps a touch of earthiness. Medium bodied. Simple and straightforward. A solid stout and at a decent price. Recommended.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark color, tan lace. Dark coffee, espresso taste. Pretty sticky. Medium-thin body, medium duration. Flavor is not as strong as I would hope it would be.
