3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler… Pours pitch black with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. The aroma is a carbonaceous, sweet marriage of coal and dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied with a slick mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is a ribbon of sweet, creamy milk chocolate and bittersweet dark chocolate. Finishes with candied nuts, chocolate and light smoke. Kudos to pantanap for shipping the growler my way!

Draft. Dark brown pour. I think most people would expect a blast of sweetness, it is weet like chcolate milk but never gets over the top sweet. Very tasty stout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle shared by beerpig317. Pours dark brown to black with a small light beige head. The aroma is heavily roasted, dark chocolate, with mild coffee notes. The flavor presents much more as a dry stout; big roasted malts to the point of being ashy, chocolate is more dark in nature rather than creamy milk chocolate and there is some coffee to the finish. Drying finish. Decent, but could use more sweetness.
