4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16oz can. Rich roasted malt aroma with nice notes of dark chocolate and some coffee. Pours black as night with a thin light brown head with poor retention but decent lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt with a good dark chocolate sweetness as well as a good, chewy mouthfeel and full body. Finishes smooth with a tiny bit of coffee sneaking into the flavor at the very end. Excellent stout!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Canned (8.8%) from Safeway. Pitch black in color upon pouring. Nose is fairly roasty with a bit of sweetness. Good roasty character up front. Leading into a bit of coffee flavors. Quite smooth and easy to drink. Mild hop character. Not the most flavorful impy around, but it is extremely easy to drink for its strength. A little warming as well. Maybe a touch of booze in the finish.
