4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Various kegs and bottles. Pours jet black with nice brown head. Aromas of chocolate, light coffee, sweet vanilla, and a lactic twang. The flavor is super smooth and full. Chocolate, roasted malts, and a sweet finish make this one a winner. Not super filling like some stouts can be, but just perfect.

Enjoyed on tap at St Vitus in Brooklyn, NY. I'm really liking this one. Appearance is a moderate pitch black with a thin white rim. Aroma is a nice mixture of dark chocolate and cocoa with a bit of lactose. Taste is fantastic, nicely balanced between lactose and chocolate. Good stuff!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Winooski Beverage Warehouse. Aroma: chocolate, roast, toast. App: black-brownish, small brown head with lacing. Taste and palate: medium sweet, medium body, average to high carbonation almost like Coca-Cola, watery and minimal bitter finish. Overall: nice aroma, taste is good but the palate is a tad unpleasant due to high carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle... Pours nearly black with traces of burnt orange and a small, creamy, cappuccino head. The aroma is lightly smoky with a facet of fresh bandage and a redeeming note of vanilla. Full bodied with soft carbonation. The flavor is lightly roasty, watery and thin. Finishes mildly nutty. Not much going on here.
