3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black with a decent white head, aroma is slightly burnt coffee. Flavor is roasted malt but with a slightly unpleasant burnt taste overwhelming everything else. Some slight hops present but that burnt flavor overtakes everything else. Not bad, but needs to be balanced a bit to turn down that sense of burnt bitter flavor.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Wonderful example of a straightforward stout. Malty with chocolate, coffee, and vanilla with the perfect amount of hops to keep it from being too sweet.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle courtesy of dunn4040. Pours black with a moderate, somewhat cream, light brown head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left light patchy lace. Very pleasant aroma that is filled with cocoa and coffee with notes of roast in the nose as well. The flavor is much more centered around the roast with a very minor amount of coffee and even less cocoa. Mild roast bitterness at the finish. No problems.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark cola color with a one finger tan head. Nice retention. Aroma is slightly roasty, cocoa, cracker, and fresh coffee beans. A nice clean stout aroma. Flavor is black coffee, vanilla bean, semi-sweet chocolate, and leaves a smoky aftertaste on the palate akin to smoking a cigar. Fairly straight forward flavors, not overly complex. A decent stout overall. I’ve had this before and I feel like it impressed me a little more the first time I had it. I’ll probably have to come back and try/rate this one again later down the road.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle, shared by a local louisvillian beer enthusiast. Black color. Thin, kind of bubbly light brown head. Good retention. Dots of lace. Nice coffee aroma, awesome big coffee, good roast, light dark chocolate. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Not as chewy or thick as other stouts like this, but very nice still. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet, great roasty coffee aftertaste. Hint of dark bushberry from the coffee, I think. Nice stuff.

Bottle. Pours nearly black with a tan head: fine lacing. Aroma is roast and chocolate. Similar taste with a touch of hops. Body is medium with crisp carbo for a stout. Overall, a nice local Atlanta brew.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bottle. Dark brown, almost black with a small, thin tan head. Huge nose on this one, with some sweet hop aromas, mocha, graham cracker. Super-smooth mouthfeel with the perfect balance of hops and malty sweetness. I wouldn’t say that this one tastes especially like chocolate, oatmeal, coffee, etc., but it’s just so well-balanced. You definitely get that "green" flavor from the hops, as well as a bit of coffee and milk chocolate. Really well-done.
