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.

Bottle @ home. Deep brown/black appearance with a dark brown head. Deeply roasty, a bit milky, dark chocolate, light vanilla, a bit burnt black coffee aroma. Dry, very roasty dark chocolate malty, coffee flavor with a touch of fruity tartness. Pretty easy drinking.

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.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells mildly like bread and coffee. Extremely dark brown color, almost black. Totally opaque. Average head with brown foam and little lacing. Tastes like coffee, strong and bitter. There are sour notes as well. Medium body, thick and creamy. An interesting looking beer. Taste is strong but not overpowering, and it finishes well.

Didn’t do anything for me, smells nice, with lots of hops and tons of roast. And that’s where it ends, body is super thin, with nothing going on. I like stouts to have some balls, and this one does not.
