Pours a black as a moonless night, with a small head. Smells sweet witha chocolate toasty malty nose. Taste is sweet with chocolate and coffee notes. Very drinkable, without any bitterness. Carbonation is soft and the finishes like a Hershey kiss. Quaff Score 8 / 10 Nice sweet stout !

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Opaque brown-black, deep beige head. Sort of odd chocolate centered aroma, some oats and a hint of sour pungency. Kind of sharp, Iíd guess a little infected. Other than that, pretty tolerable. Medium bodied, roasty bakers chocolate. Not a really impressive example of the style, I certainly wonít seek this or any other Lake Superior beer out again.

Has some faint chocolate taste as well as scent. Also getting some kind of fruit taste, rather light, but really drinkable.

Its ok, not really anything special. No complexity, no layers. But still pretty tasty overall.

This looks the part, deep and dark with a tan head that laces nicely. Nose is too damn subtle, but whatís there is good, grains, metallic, like a brown ale really, whereís the oatmeal?
Taste: again, subtle... you have to do a bit of thinking to gather anything worth noting... itís like a dark, oat-dashed New Castle, not very impressive. The feel is decent, milky and an appropriate level of carbonation, donít expect anything spectacular but it works.
Overall, average, thatís about it.

This didnít really work for me at all. A really nice chocolately nose, but the flavor was sour with an overly carbonated body--almost like a bad bottle, I donít know.

Probably not the first time I have drank this beer. I spent one year in Superior/Duluth. Very good, glad to have it again.

Bottle. Pours near black with a deep brown head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma has a nice sweet milk chocolate note with some roasted malts and a hint of coffee. Flavor has a really nice smooth milk chocolate note throughout with some dark grains and oak coming out.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Near black with a dark tan head. Malty, caramel aroma. Up until now i was excited to try this one. The flavor started dry, but changed to a smokey plastic-like aftertaste that was unexpected. Lighter side of medium body.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled sample. Near black in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of chocolate covered raisins and a bit of caramel. Flavours are of dark chocolate, coffee, chalky + other minerals, mild smoke and even fainter sweetness. Medium bodied. Simplistic aroma, but loads of character, complexity, and balance in the mouth. Good stuff.
