4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The aroma is full of chocolate and licorice with a slight burnt note. Black color with a tan head with ok head retention. The flavor is a mostly smooth roasted malt complexity with some noticeable fruity esters on the front and middle end of the taste. The end note contains a hop and roasted grain bitterness to balance some of the maltiness. Medium-full body with silky creaminess and a dry endnote. Overall, a great tasting stout. I would buy this again.

Very well balanced stout that hits many flavor notes- roasted malts, some hop bitterness, moderate coffee and chocolate, bit of sweetness, even some dark fruits. Dark black pour with mocha colored head and lacing. Very well done.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured black and oily with a medium sized foamy dark brown head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was bitter and toasty with strong floral hops, smoke and a touch of medicine. The flavor was bitter and toasty with notes of coffee, cocoa, vanilla, floral hops, a bit of dark fruit, but, cola and an earthy note. Nicely complex. Long finish. Moderately full bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Interesting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Jensen Beach. No bottle date. Pours brownish with a bit of a tan head. Aroma has raisins and light chocolate and molasses and sweet caramel. Taste is of sweet caramel, some rum raisin, other fruits, a touch of chocolate and perhaps salty brine. Medium bodied without much alcohol presence. Finishes dark fruity sweet with caramel. Tasty, a bit heavier rum raisin than should be, but also caramelly. 13.8

Bottle. Black with a soapy thin head. Aroma is cocoa, black licorice, and roasted malt. The taste is very complex - cocoa that comes in waves, a subtle dry finish from the oysters, some earthy notes, a little dark fruit, and oak wood. Very smooth full body, with average carb. I love this. A+
