Bottle: brown hue with minimal head nor lace. Not an Irish Stout, not by a long shot but more akin to a Schwartzbier IMO... sweet stout? I guess that will be okay. (see what is in the description above) Heavy bready and caramelized malts with a fair amount of roast. Almost no bitterness outside some clean noble character. Faint dark fruit esters. Slick and soft mouthfeel... okay for what it is

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a fresh growler into a tumbler on 08.23.14.
A: Chocolate malt and earthy like root beer. Sweet smelling.
A: 3 finger head. Dark brown nearly opaque body with a see through bottom.
T: Licorice, earthy sweetness, and caramel dominate. It has a root-like back end.
P: Watery, but carbonated enough.
O: This seems more like a Scotch ale, but itís hard to define. Itís very, very sweet, enough that I canít drink more than 2 glasses of it before it wears on me.

Tap, Famous Daveís, Kalispell, Montana. Dark brown, sweet aroma. Sweet, caramel flavour, some sugar, but just too sweet for me.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown color with a little light coming through. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, more sweet almost candy smell. Taste is lots of caramel sweetness, sugar and is slightly cloying, but not overly. I was really interested to try this because Rate Beer calls this a sweet stout. BA calls it a strong ale. I can see both sides on this, but whatever you call it, itís good.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bottle. Appearance: pours with a lot of sediment. Aroma: creamy, malty, and roasty, with chocolate, vanilla, and toffee. Taste/Palate: feels a bit thin; starts creamy and sweet, and finishes sweet and crisp. This is a pretty fantastic beer, especially from a sweetness perspective, but I would prefer it to be a bit thicker and maybe boozier. That being said, this beer hides its alcohol content extremely well.
