From a 12oz. Bottle. Black pout, light tan head. Very roasty in the nose and roasty and sweet in the taste. Good, but perhaps a little too sweet for my liking.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep dark beer with a thin tan head. Expresso, toffee, and some toasting provides a very pleasant aroma. Medium body and fine carbonation. More expresso and toffee in the flavor with a drying finish of black malt bitterness. Overall, a nice dry Irish Stout.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 5/17/12, Bottled Jan ’12 (Week 4)
Aroma: The nose is mostly roasted malts with a little bot of licorice
Appearance: It pours a dark brown-black color with a small brown head
Flavor: It tastes roasted up-front, with a later bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, with average carbonation, and a lightly dry finish
This is a decent beer, but that is about all. It is mostly roasty, a little one-dimensional, and a little dull.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle purchased at Total Wine SanTan Village, Gilbert, AZ. Pour is black with moderate tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee and weak chocolate. Taste is bitter/sweet chocolate and coffee. This ale is thin, much too thin. The finish is bitter. A very forgetable brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Originally reviewed: 4/1/10. Poured into a pint glass. Had with lunch today. This pours a very thick black. No light comes through the murkiness at all. A small tan head caps it off, and leaves light lace after each sip. Scents of milk chocolate, roasted malts, and dark breads. Not bad.
The body is a little thin for the style. Carbonation level is moderate. I’d like a bit more "chew" to this. This has great flavor though! Nice bittersweet chocolate, a little char in the middle, and finishes dry and slightly tart. I for one, really enjoyed this one.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle- Pours a black color with a decent tan head that fades slowly to good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel sweetness with a bit of chocolate. Taste is similar to the aroma with caramel sweetness, bit of chocolate and roasted malt. There is a mild bitterness and a dry finish. Fairly medium body, smooth and somewhat creamy. Not a bad stout. Goes down pretty easy.
