3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz - Aroma is roasted dark malts, hops, coffee, and milk chocolate. Pours black with a small brown head and decent lacing. Flavor is also roasted malts, coffee, and milk chocolate. It tastes just a little off, too creamy and not enough chocolate. Palate is tart and sticky. Overall a pretty decent stout.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an basic stout black color with very little head to speak of. Chocolate and coffee like aroma as would be expected. Nice toasty malt flavor with hints of dark chocolate. A solid if not outstanding stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was a damn good stout. Not over the top with the chocolate syrup like say for example Rogue Chocolate Stout. This is a better example of balance. Great milk chocolate flavor, mixed with some dark chocolate notes and some dusty cocoa powder to top it all off. Finishes dry and roasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This really has the potential to be great, but what I had was pretty average. Pour is a deep black color with ruby highlights. Nice aroma of scorched chocolate. Flavors are sweet (I do like my sweet stouts), somewhat roasty malts, some chocolate raisins too. I did like this, so I will have to revisit this again. Hopefully it gets better.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: A dark creamy beer. Very Smooth with a hint of Choclate Tast. I just tried Youngs Double Choclate Stout (which is better) so this one was at a disadvantage but overall good Beer. Very smooth finish, almost too smooth...It needs a little more kick to it...But good beer overall...

On tap at brewpub. I’m definitely a stout man, and this is tasty. Dark black...big chocolate taste with roasted malts and nice hops. Very creamy and drinkable for a big stout. Worth trying for sure.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Poured a black black with hues of dark blackety-black. Huge frothy tan head which lasted to the bottom of the glass. Aromas of cocoa, straw, and a salty Frito smell. Kind of had a clean smell to it. Flavors of bitter chocolates with a dry dirt aftertaste. Lightly bitter and slightly chalky finish of medium duration. Only let down in this beer was a rather watery mouthfeel, but overall fairly satisfying.
