3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Very dark pour, nearly black but not quite opaque, with a foamy head. Aroma is some oak, whiskey and dark fruits. Flavour is quite sweet, plum, cherry, oaky with a whiskey finish. This is not anywhere near a stout, much closer to a Belgian strong dark ale, but still tasty. Lighter body but lots of flavour, not bad.

Colour off dark coffee with a cola like head. Sweet aroma hunting of chocolate liqueur. Flavour is surprisingly bright and sweet. Very refreshing with hints of crisp apples in the back end.

Nice dark stout that has a head of dark red/caramel. Aroma is very robust with oak and whiskey notes. Taste follows through.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very sweet, definitely at the forefront making it instantly noticeable as non-sessionable. Little to no hop presense, not getting any wood/oak indicators. Roasted malt character, some caramel and toffee. Slight warmth in the finish brings a whiskey comparison. Very smooth with the warmth. Great beer, but not my favorite style. Would be rated higher if not a personal reminder, because it is a great beer for the style.

Growler. This is an ok stout with a decent whiskey back burner. Interesting but nothing special.

Draft. Pours deep brown with thin white head that lingers thinly. Smells like banana creme pie. It's tasty. A bit thin for a stout.

From the bottle. Appearance is dark brown. Aroma of whiskey, dark fruits, caramel and sweet malt. Taste is sweet with hints of coffee and whiskey. Palate medium in the mouth with great alcoholic warmth. Not at all overpowering just well balanced, pleasant and drinkable. More please.
