3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft chef pauls. Snifter. Aroma is faint, nothing standing out. Taste is typical stout, some coffee, and dark chocolate. Hops finishing it off. I have to say that overall this seemed a bit non-descript to me, good beer but overall nothing that exciting.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours opaque black with a thick mocha head. Tons of cocoa in the aroma, a bit of sweet molasses, vanilla, coffee, and a little earthy breadiness. Flavor is quite sweet, with layers of chocolate, coffee, anise, vinous notes, and vanilla melding together. Nice traces of bitterness throughout compliment the smooth and somewhat sweet chocolate presence. Good stuff.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Pizza Port (Solana Beach, CA): Pours black with a thick brown foamy head. Roasted malts in the nose as well as dark chocolate and some alcohol. Taste is similar with some added earthy hops and licorice that leaves an incredibly sweet and balanced mouthfeel with a delicate bitter hop finish. Drinkability: Heavy, not thick, smooth and creamy. Dark chocolate stands out. Pairing: Meat pie. Rebuy: Definitely. #288 on 25022010, DG.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very dark and creamy stout. Very light hints of coffee as well as a lot of earth. Nothing sticking out as outstanding in any category, yet it was a delicious beer overall. It would make a great staple to keep in a keg if a big stout drinker.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from the bottle that was sitting in my basement for 6 months. Jet black pour with foamy tan head. Aroma of roasted grains and cocoa. Flavor was rich in roasted chocolate malts, espresso, cocoa, and a big dose of bitter hops. Full bodied with a smooth texture. A complex and satisfying stout.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This was the 2nd best stout of the night after the Hoppin’ Frog. Great aromas of roasted malts, milk chocolate and some vanilla notes. Big, creamy flavors that lean towards a dry stout. Malty and super tasty. Another winner from Green Flash (hey Green Flash - I know a couple great places for a brewery here in Philadelphia!!)
