3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours black. Small light brown head, not a lot of lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate and coffee. Taste is sweet roasted malts, a little bitterness. Creamy, medium body, a little thin. Finishes slightly bitter with notes of roasted malt, coffee and of course chocolate. Not the best but certainly not the worst.

12 oz bottle, Kroger Bridge St. Roast chocolate coffee. Roast chocolate coffee. Roast chocolate coffee. Thin, fizzy, run-of-the-mill and uninspiring. This is the kind of stout I loathe. A decent brewery makes a stout recipe out of a home-brew recipe book. Seriously, who cares anymore... You don’t have to bottle an average-at-best stout just for the sake of having a stout in your roster.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from bottle at 60F. Pours a dark brown with a 2 finger brown-khaki head that is creamy and long lasting; heavy lacing. Aroma - malt, some hop, touch of chocolate and yeast. Taste - a little chocolatey, coffee, malt. Creamy on the palate, but feels a bit thin. Moderate carbonation that feels right for style.

Appearance was reddish black with diminishing creamy tiny head, no lacing. Aromas are chocolate, soft coffee and roasted barley, no alcohol.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Super dark brown and opaque, with a decent creamy beige head.
Coffee nose, with some dark chocolate, roasted malts and earthy hops.
Flavors are mostly of dark malts, with some chocolate notes, coffee, cream and medium bitterness.
Dry, light-med body, quite balanced but lacks some depth. Cool.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Aroma of chocolate and malts, a bit of nuttiness. The taste is the same, equally as mellow but all the notes are there. A bit too watery, but not terrible. 5.3% alcohol.
