3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle pours a fairly viscous, opaque black with some off white head. Nose is what you’d expect, malt, chocolate, toast, caramel, brown sugar, nutty. Flavor is more milk chocolate, caramel, sweet, malt, light toast, light toasted almond. Full, dry finish.

Super duper dark roasted, burnt coffee flavor with some dark chocolate on the nose and palate. Roasty burnt coffee finish. Delightful.

This is easily the best beer I’ve tried from Fort Collins. Very sweet, but not cloying, rich and creamy. Dark with a great head.

Bottle. Pours black with 2 finger white head. Aroma is very sweet with chocolate and a lot of roasted malt. Roasted malt takes over in the taste with some brief coffee notes. Moderate heat from the alcohol. Mouthfeel is a little thin with a lively carb. Would have benefited from the chocolate being more apparent in the taste.

Oh lady - what a salad! Not like the sissy concoctions some girls serve. They’re enough to keep a man a bachelor forever!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma is dark chocolate (like the really bitter high cacao percentage kind) and roast coffee. Black with a very small fading cream head. Bitter roast coffee flavors. Medium bodied with a bittersweet finish.

Toasted malt, chocolate. Creamy ten head over a dark black pour. Dark chocolate, raisin; slight sour late. A tad thin for a stout. Growler pour from Joe canals. They were out of founders breakfast stout again, argh. Beer had quite the kick. Maybe should be called imperial.
