3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark brown, almost solid black, medium sized beige head recedes fairly quickly. Aroma of coffee and chocolate but it’s not over the top. Taste is pretty sweet with some tart qualities. Pretty nice, not as roasty as expected, lots of sweet milky chocolate. Creamy texture. This is almost really good if there was a little more dark chocolate, burnt malt or coffee type bitterness.

Bottle pours a deep clear deep mahogany dark brown. Fleeting off white head. Up front cold old coffe grounds and ashtray aroma with a little chocolate. Flavor is coffe and sweet roasted malts with plenty of coffee. The body is thn and a bit dry. More like a porter. Quick finish especially for a "stout"

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark brown with a short, moderately dense beige head. Bitter coffee ground aroma with a little spiciness, some sweetness and chocolate. Tastes almost exactly like a chocolate covered espresso bean to me on a moderate body. Not bad.
