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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Artisanal Fromagerie Bistro in New York. The pour is dark brown black with a small off white head. The aroma is dark chocolate, roast malt and a bit of milk to the back. The taste is roasted malt, sweetness from cocoa and chocolate and some nuttiness to the finish. The palate is light to medium bodied with active carbonation and a clean finish. Perhaps a bit thin for the style, but tasty and easy to drink.

Bottle to stout glass. Pours almost black with a small white head. Aroma of dusty bakers chocolate and roast. Taste is roast and chocolate with a sweet milky... something or other. A bit thin on the mouthfeel. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from a trade. Pours fairly dark with a medium brown head that dissipated quickly. Some ruby highlights as the head dies. Aroma is light chocolate with some milky quality to it. A bit of cocoa to it as well. Taste is chocolate and cocoa, with a hint of roast, seemingly thin bodied for a sweet stout, then turns to a peppery sensation and tingle in the throat as it finishes dry. Just seems a bit light and thin bodied for my liking of a sweet stout

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
