4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Iím pretty far from being a connoisseur of stouts and porters but Iíve pretty much fallen in love with them over the last little while. Anywho, Half Pints is a local brewery so I might be a bit biased but honestly, Iím just loving this. Iíve had it plenty of times in the past and always thought it was ok but enjoying this beer at cellar temperature is kinda orgasmic.
As to be expected, dark chocolate and coffee notes appear in both aroma and taste. Texture is surprisingly light and thin for a stout. I actually wish it had a bit more of a heavier feel to it. But then again, it probably makes it that much more easier to drink!
Bottom line, not an overly complicated stout by an means, but itís really enjoyable and perfect for those cooler fall evenings.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beer pours a dark brown with a nice tan head. Aroma is bitter coffee and some borderline bitter chocolate/sweet chocolate. There is also a roasted barley note. The taste is nice. Bitter coffee, bittersweet chocolate, roast and a bitter finish. Leaves a nice sticky residue on the lips. Nice body for being a 5.6% ABV. A nice sessionable coffee stout that is slightly reminiscent of The Poet by New Holland. Thanks again to Cards04 for this one!

Light brown with minimal head. Aroma is musk, dirt, wood, grain. Thin on the palate, short finish. Taste is watery soy sauce, grains, cheap chocolate. What the hell were they stirring with this stick?

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2013 hints of chocolate and coffee, OK head, quite crisp on the tongue, layers of flavour including a hint of burnt carmel, donít drink cold (just slightly cool), a touch hot for stout, tough to beat if you like a good stout

Aromas of molasses, candi sugar, dates. Flavour is roasted with coffee and dark chocolate. Flavour doesnít come across as sweet as the nose would suggest. Somewhat thin, with a bitter, roasted finish. Good stout.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at revolution with lactose and chocolate. Aroma of choose, roasted malts and sweet creamy coffee. Taste is coffee, roasted malts, sweet chocolate, creamy hot chocolate and slightly bitter cocoa on the finish. Excellent coffee stout and a joke twist with the addition of lactose leaves a ton of flavor all over but perfect for this time of year and the next 8 months.
