Bready aroma. Nice black color with chocolaty brown color when held up to the light very little head. Very sweet milk chocolate taste. Very smooth on the palate, but leaves milky feeling . Overall a very good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

(Bottle) Nice rich coffee + chocolate flavor in this one. It’s not anything spectacular but it’s a pretty decent stout.

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 it’s hard to define. It’s very, very sweet, enough that I can’t drink more than 2 glasses of it before it wears on me.

Tap, Famous Dave’s, 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, it’s good.

Picked up at a gas station, was not expecting much. Pours motor oil black, thin khaki head. Strong espresso, mild bitter chocolate. Light body, silky mouthfeel. Finish is coffee grinds. Pretty decent.

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.
