Slight hop and sweet - dark brown and opaque. Sweet malt, hop was lacking in my opinion. It appears to be bottle conditioned - though thoroughly chilled and gently poured I got tons of yeast floaties. Was expecting more than it delivered.

Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. This black hued beer has a limited aroma but the taste is simple and malty. Roast coffee and chocolate and toast intermingle. Tastes much lighter than the ABV suggests.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From 22oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a nice dark copper, light head at first but then creamed up and fizzed to the top like a Guinness. Nose is huge malt, slight coffee, ash, smoke. Taste is medium-heavy body that is mostly sour. Finishes with an alcahol bite. Nice beer to have on St. Patty’s Day.

22 oz bottle poured black with lots of foam. Smells sweet. Taste is toasty bread, coffee and hints of molasses. NO bitterness, very smooth. Carbonation goes fast. Just okay.

Molasses on the nose. Pours dark, minimal head. Medium to light in body, slick texture, sweet malt and perhaps licorice. Pleasant on the palate. A (perhaps) salty finish. Meets expectations and defies categorization. From the bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle. Darkest brown, large tan head that stays the course. Aroma is earth, chocolate brownies, faint coffee. Smooth, dark malty taste with the elements of the aroma figuring. Solid stuff all through but nothing that really stands out. Also I’d say that it doesn’t fit in with any particular style.

Tap. Black with tan white head. Smells sweet. Taste is malty sweet stout. Bitterness is there, but maltiness is powerful for a stout.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2014 chocolate grainy aromas. incredibly drinkable for being borderline eight percent. nice maltiness. head dissipates but nice lacing. more of a dark ale than a stout.
