3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to Tom and Nancy for bring this home. Deep brown body under a small tan head. The aroma was strong malty coffee and chocolate. Roasted nuts, too. Probably more a coffee stout than a chocolate one. More carbonation than I like in a stout and not as thick as I like. The flavor is refreshing and rewarding, however. A pretty good drink.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz. bottle. Roasty, coffeeish aroma, grainy and lightly burnt with definite milky cocoa and toffee notes. Ebony in color with the faintest glint of brown when held up to light and a fine, thin, eggshell head. Roasty and lightly bitter maltiness to start, turning hoppier and drying substantially before the chocolate finish arrives. Lingering coffee and hop tones and dark breadiness. Just a little thin and watery on the palate, well carbonated, body is light-medium. Enjoyable.

A light creamy tan head sits above a black body. Roasted aromatics waif through the nostrils. A medium body on the palate showers the tongue with a light burnt and solid roasted/chocolate malt. Not astringent as some can be. Needs a bit more malt to balance for me but it is a nice overall dry stout. Thanks to Aubrey for this one!

Weak brewed coffee in the aroma. Deep black with a thin mocha head. Coffee fore proceeds a mild milk chocolate and roasted malt middle and leads into a more roasty and bitter finish. Not getting as much chocolate flavor as anticipated. Seems much more a dry stout than a sweet stout, but it does taste good.

Good standout aromas for a stout. Coffee, chocolate and wood. Black tan head as normal. Flavor I thougt was the down side here. Chocolate and thin bodied was looking for more full bodied beer from the aroma I got. None the less it was a smooth easy drinkable beer. Bought a six pack and got a free glass

Pours black with a tan head. Flavor is coffee, roasted malts, with a hint of dark chocolate. A hint of sweetness, but this is a dry beer. I like to see a little more chocolate in my chocolate stouts, but this was good.

Black body with a tan head. The aroma is chocolate and some oatmeal. There is also some roasted aroma that makes me think of a good grilling. The taste is lightly roasted coffee. I can’t really detect any chocolate in the taste. I am surprised that this is called a sweet stout. I was looking for more body and flavor. The is more roasted and dry.

12oz. bottle. Poured a dark brown, almost black with a small tan head. Aroma of dark roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate. Flavor is dark chocolate, roasted malt and some coffee. A bit thin, but a very good beer.
