3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mild chocolate aroma. Pours an opaque black, with a light tan head. Roasted flavor, with hints of milk chocolate. Lingering roasted finish, light bodied. Not a bad sessionable stout.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Deep brown pour, inch-plus cream head. The aroma only hints at chocolate, and the taste matches. More coffee than anything else here.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very dark brown with no head and lots of bubbles on the side of the glass; like Coca-Cola. Aroma of roasted malts dark chocolate and vanilla. Lots of roastyness and some dark chocolate like smores over a campfire but not very sweet or creamy. Palate is more fizzy which doesn’t really fit with the taste. Like a mix of soda and smokey chocolate.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle. Blackish with a small beige head that has poor retention. Not much aroma to speak of--just a faint trace of roasted barley. Taste is washed-out weak chocolate with a metallic aftertaste. Palate is thinner than I prefer. Finished short and forgettable. Overall: weak stuff--I probably wont be trying any more beers from this brewery.

Bottle@home, from Little Italy Wines, Cleveland, USA. Medium boozy aroma with coffee and roasted malts, some licorice and a hint of tar. Pitch black color with small light beige head. Medium, unbalanced rubbery taste with lean coffee, roasted malts and some licorice. Medium taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with watery licorice. Light body with medium carbonation. Overall, watery feeling in every aspect.

Looks good, deep brown color small beige head that fades quickly. Not much aroma, not much taste. Thin, watery, but it’s better than Budweiser!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Moriartys. Pitch black pour with a thin topping of khaki foam. No lace. Roasted chocolate malts. Dark cocoa. Burnt nuts. Hints of charcoal. A bold first impression but the depth of flavors is ultimately too shallow. Not unpleasant but not grand.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Noticeable aromas and flavors of chocolate and toasted malt. Slight hop bitterness leaves a dry finish. Not too sweet. Soft brown color with a medium weight. Not bad.

Bottle. This was a little too much for my taste. Too sweet, too unbalanced, too far off the path
