2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fresh bottle. Pours black with brown bordering. Aroma is light roast coffee, soy sauce. Taste is bitter, earthy. I'm not getting anything creamy or milky here. Slight bitter aftertaste. Perplexing.

On tap. Ours dark brown with beige head that sticks around. Almost no lacing. Pretty one dimensional...coffee bean in the nose . Similar in the taste with some lactose. I don’t get why this rates so well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is roasted malts, coffee and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is heavy roasted malts, coffee, mild milk sweetness and a mix of bitterness and acidity in the finish.

Okay example of the style. Predominantly coffee bean; the lactose evens it out but the bitterness sticks around quite a while. A little sour and/or too hoppy but nice carbonation.

Bottle. Had one that was sour, don’t know what was up with that but we tried another and it was a lot better. Very dark brown pour with tan head. Smells of slight smoke and dark chocolate. Tastes of the same with a coffee finish. Smooth mouth feel. Nice stout.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served from a 12 oz bottle via bonus from klikger (BA). The appearance is coffee brown with a tan frothy head. The aromas are roasted malts, oatmeal, and some lactose. Flavors are fairly plain. Mostly just a spiced malt with some roasty characteristics.
