4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is nice, the brew smells like bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, cream/lactose, and a light minerally aroma. It tastes mostly just like the aroma is, like dark chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, and some minerals. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís creamy and has a good amount of carbonation. Itís a solid brew.

Overall, an OK beer, but a bit of a weak stout. The scent is a faint dark chocolate bitter, typical appearance, medium body oily feel, with a dark chocolate bitter flavor with a hint of vanilla on the finish.

Draft. Black with thin tan head. Nose is weak. Taste is chocolate, malt and whipped cream. Palate is a little thin but adequate. Not bad.

Bottle thanks to Alwcordell. Pours clear deep ruby black with a medium tan creamy head that slowly dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, cigarette butts, a touch of cocoa, lactose. Flavor is about the same, light to medium sweet, light bitter. Pronounced cigarette butt finish. Not getting much of any vanilla. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had on tap in a pint glass.
Pours a nearly opaque black with a one finger dark tan head. Average lacing and head retention.
Aroma of roasted malt and vanilla with a little hint of chocolate. Some toast and yeast is present in the background.
The flavor expands on the same characteristics found in the aroma. Lots of chocolate with vanilla and moderately roasted malt. There is a sweetness throughout that can get to be a little much at times. Moderate bitterness.
Overall, a nicely done stout with some nice chocolate and roast qualities. I wasnít blown away however, and I feel there are much better stouts out there.

Bought at Carsonís Tavern in Scottdale PA in a mix 6 pack..This is the second time iíve had this one. Aroma is all yeast...color..around 25 SRM iíd guess..Honestly tastes like cocoa crispies cereal..this was actually in the dollar bin. Not sure why but..an above average coco stout for sure. Grab it if you see it..cleveland reprezent.
