4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
I can see why the World Cup of 2012 gave a bronze medal to this beer. It is smooth, not syrupy at all. Extremely well balanced in flavor, texture, and after taste. Strong coffee notes followed by the espresso. Great beer indeed.

Beautiful opaque pour w/ a mocha head that leaves very good lacing. The aroma has a roasty undertone w/ touch of chocolate. The taste is chocolate upfront & then hits you w/ some roasted bitterness in the finish all while having a milky smooth mouthfeel! Tasty, fairly complex, & goes down easy! Nicely done!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep brown, practically black in color with a light brown head. It looks niceÖ kudos on that. It smells lightly sweet with a touch of herbal hops and black patent malts or, although lightly dosed, just maybe some heavily roasted malts. In the mouth itís a little bitter from the roasted malts and dry enough to prevent residual sugars from masking that bitterness. Still, though, itís soft, smooth, and easy to drink. The roasted malts, although very bitter, are gentle and easy to stomach. Nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Heavy roasted barley, dry chocolate, coffee, and caramel on the nose. Just about black with a mostly fading beige head. Very dry, with flavors of earthy unmalted barley and char, very bitter. Medium-full bodied, chewy, and finishes with lingering roast and bitterness. A solid stout, chock full of roasted malts and balancing bitterness, seemingly Russian-styled for a proclaimed American stout, but damn tasty all the same.

Dark chocolate and roasty coffee aromas with a slight nutty fruit aromas. Beige head and dark red almost black body. Roasty bitter dark coffee flavors dry cocoa and malt flavors kinda chalky. Dry and bitter nut smooth on the palate.

Frothy pour, dark which left fairly nice lacing. Soapy roasted aroma. I worked through my sixpack of this and really didnít "feel it" until about the fourth one. Iím not sure what my problem was. This is pretty good. Really roasty, yet milky as well. Just a touch of lactic flavor, but not offputting. Chocolatey and sweet, but not cloying. Really smooth mouthfeel, coating on the tongue. I liked it.
