3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Jensen Beach. Pours an opaque black with a tan head. No real lacing. Aroma has molasses, roast, some soy, and liquid chocolate. And more liquid chocolate. Taste is of bakers chocolate, expresso, and molasses. Quite sweet and lactose-y. Probably a bit thin for a stout. Should be a sweet stout? Finishes sweetly bitter with some length. Interesting with nice flavors.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz Bottle. The pour was a deep dark black with a large (2-3 finger) medium brown fluffy head that receded slowly, down to a light film with a large collar and had excellent sheets of streaky lacing.
The aroma was bold and powerful with a burnt chocolate malt, a light resin hop and a heavy leathery yeast with notes of dark chocolate, roasted coffee, molasses, vanilla and dark fruit (berries).
The taste was very malty with a nice chocolaty sweetness and a note of coffee from the onset with a mild bitterness settling in along with a hint of molasses and a somewhat strong smoky berry ending. The flavor lingered for a good long time with a wonderful chocolate espresso taste that was left hanging for a while longer.
Mouthfeel was a few steps past medium in body with a smooth and creamy texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall an extremely bold, robust and tasty brew that ended with a mild fruity sweetness that possessed a touch of smoke, which made this an exceptionally fantastic drinking experience...

Bottle. Pours a thick and very dark brown with a very thick tan head. Lots of bitter and roasted notes to the nose. Definitely bitter and biting in the taste - not for the uninitiated.
