3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a rich deep umber black color with a finger of mocha foam. The nose is gritty earthy coffee, chocolate and some nice roasty malts and some traces of dark fruit... the palate follows the nose nicely with a good dose of carbonation to really lighten up the rich velvety mouthfeel. Nice lingering chocolate with a hint of oat coming through... dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served alongside Earl (bourbon).
The beer is dark brown, near black, with a half inch of beige cap. The aroma brings roast, coffee, oats. Definitely smells true to style. A delicious beer. Oatmeal, chocolate cereal grains. On par with Samuel Smith and Young’s (is that sacrilege? - if so, favoring whom?). A solid beer.

500 ml bottle shared by Huhzubendah, thanks Matt! Pours an oily jet black with ruby red hues when backlit. A thin layer of bubbles line the edge of the meniscus. Aroma is dark bitter chocolate, malt, roast, coffee and cacao. Flavor is same with lactic silky mouthfeel, roasted malt, moderate carbonation and bitter coffee and dry tar finish. Delicious. Only 7.2%?? Flavor is bursting out of this beer for such a low ABV.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Black pour with a full beautiful dark brown head. The aroma is intoxicating. Amazing notes of dark, roasted malt, cocoa, and loads of espresso. Some light soy, some smoke, and burnt brown sugar. The body is silky and luscious, the carb is soft and luxurious. The finish is medium bitter, loads of bitter espresso. Sweet and bitter cocoa, and touches of warming alcohol. Incredible stout. World class.
