3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Part of a sampler at the Framingham, MA location. This was actually quite good and the best brew out of the 5 glass sampler. Dark brown with a nice creamy head and good lacing. Good roasted malt flavor with tastes of coffee and chocolate.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lake Grove location. Dark brown-black with a light brown nitro head. Roasty chocolatey aroma. Nice creamy body, milk chocolate and a bit of earthy hoppy aroma. Good flavour and aroma despite all of the nitro. Soft roasty bitterness along with sweet chocolate and toast. Medium bodied. Very tasty stout.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
85% opaque, red in block; light beige head. Big cream soda aroma, grape, vanilla, almost a barrel aged aroma. Easy drinking flavor with notes of grape, toasted coconut. Smooth, moderately oily. They also had it on tap as a nitrogenated beer, of which I was given a sample; it may improve it a bit like that. Not bad at all. (on tap, Washington D.C. Penn Avenue location)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a sampler at John Harvardís in DC on September 5th, 2005. Body is dark brown with splashes of ruby. Aroma is roasty and lightly sweet with whiffs of coffee. Taste is fruity (melon and pear) and roasty with lots of malt sweetness and light coffee. Chocolate comes into play throughout this one. Body is lighter than expected but still smooth. Finishes fruity and malty with light hops and coffee. Not bad!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(DC) - OG 14.5 - Light black, lasting light tan creamy head. Soft notes of roasted chocolate, coffee, and vanilla, with lesser tones of oatmeal and ruby port. Rich, roasty, sweet milk chocolate and coffee tones set the stage early, but a light hop bitterness keeps it all in check with each sip. Medium bodied, light carbonation, drying, roasty, bittersweet finish. Good session stout...
