3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Single big bottle from Albertsons in Vegas. Pours a dark brown colour with a creamy beige head, creating creamy sticky lacing, after disappearing slowly. Cacao aromas with vanilla notes, Mild roasted malts and lots of hops for the style. Smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Again, quite hoppy for the taste over the chocolate malt, finishing with good bitterness. This American Stout is quite a treat with all the strong spots for this style, plus hops. Just a little too expensive as similar products had this week, were half the price.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty much black with a one-finger head that left nice lacing down the glass. Roasted malts and bread dominate the smell. Coffee, though not as strong in the smell, was clear in the taste, which also included some chocolate and dark fruit. All of which is well balanced by a surprising amount of hops bitterness. Medium bodied with more carbonation than expected, smooth like a good porter.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
A very dark stout, with a medium head, this beer has strong caramelized flavor with a nice balance of hops. It is quite good. Very distinct aroma of malt and medium hoppiness.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
*12 oz. bottle* Look: Black body, small mocha head. Smell: German chocolate cake, roasted malts hints of coffee bean, smells rich. Taste: Bitter chocolate, burnt malts, cherry pit, espresso, pine bitterness finishes. Feel: Medium smooth body, tight carbonation. Overall: This is pretty solid. Very decent stout. Not very complex yet still enjoyable. The aroma is superior to the flavor (IMO). This isn’t offensive in any way. For it being 8.5%, this drinks like more like a 6% beer. Slightly above the middle of the road stouts. This brew is worthy.
