3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours opaque and nearly black with a thick brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, and coffee is complemented by crisp hops. As with the aroma, the flavor manages a nice balance of roasted malt and chocolate tones with a bracing, subtly hoppy finish. Medium bodied. Quite dry and drinkable for an 8.8% stout.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16-oz can. Pours black with a dense and creamy dark tan head that settles but doesn’t go away. Stringy, webby lace. Chocolatey, lightly roasty nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb, goes a bit chalky in spots. Chocolatey roasty mid palate. Nice beer but not a bold foray into new territory.

Can shared by alexsdad06. Poured black color with an average frothy brown head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid roasted coffee and chocolate malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium roasted dark bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours black like oil, thin tan head. Aroma is lots of juicy orange/floral notes from hops, lighter dry oat and burnt notes. Syrupy, medium-thick body, smooth. moderate, even toasted oats and burnt coffee with a heavy hand of hops and nice moderate-to-heavy clean bitterness.
Yummy, decent warm, still not a heavy drinker, probably better cooled to fridge temp.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at GBBF 2011. Black color. Roasty and aged aroma with leather and soya sauce. Flavors of grassy roasty malts, raisins, nuts, leather and alderwood smoke. Full body. A lot going on in this beer, perhaps in expense of clarity of the flavor profile.
