3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
@ Party Town / Florence KY Aroma of bitter chocolate. Opaque brown-black with swirls of head cover, curtain of lace. Taste is burnt malt mixed with bittersweet dark chocolate. All moves well through a growing palate, giving in to a watery bitterness in the finish. Drinks well enough, but not enough to support the strong flavor. When a beer has strong malt and bitters, it should deliver more on the palate. Reasonable, but not much beyond that

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a short-lived, light brown head. Bitter cocoa aroma. Lightly smoked, bitter chocolate taste with hints of burnt malt. Dry, watery texture with average carbonation. Not offensive, but just a run of the mill beer.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear brown beer with a light head. Very thin body for a stout with mainly bitter taste and not much more. Some light chocolate, but not really a stout imo. Pass on this one.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nitro tap at mellow mushroom. Nitro helps quite a bit. Pour is black with persistent thick head. Smooth as a 4 year old. A bit sweet with cocoa notes and coffee bitterness to follow. Nitro makes this awesome.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle pours a dark brown with a tan head. The aroma is roasted barley, some hop, little chocolate. The taste is pretty poor for a stout, i get a watery mouth feel with a dry hop in the finish. Overall not a good chocolate stout.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Purchased at Total Wine in Summerlin, Vegas. Pours a dark brown colour with a creamy beige head, great retention and lots of foamy lace. Was expecting lots of chocolate in the nose, but seems like the hop is just a step on it. Wet mouthfeel, kind of thin-bodied. The hop calms down in the aromas and cacao and light vanilla surfaces. Taste of mild bitterness over the chocolate and roasted malts. Not the greatest, but can be nice for those who like their chocolate stouts hoppier. Way too thin for a stout.
