3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to glass at home. Pours a dark opaque, with not much head. The head that did develop is a toasted marshmallow tan. Very little lacing. The aroma is malty, caramelly, sweetened malted milk like, with cereal and grain notes. The taste is very much the same. Roasted malts, with cereal flavor on the back end. Can definitely taste the caramel and again the sweetened milk. Palate is not as think as other stouts, neither good nor bad. I will certainly drink this beer again. At least 5 more times.

Pours a dark brown, with light tan head. Swet malt, chocolate, nuts, and hints of roasted coffee. Quite creamy and sweet, it almost tastes artificial. Makes an excellent beer float though.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark but transducent brown with a thin, creamy beige head. Aroma is plenty of toast, sweet chocolate, candied nuts, lightly toasted marshmallows, herbal hops, and a some roast. Flavor has plenty of roast and chocolate, candied nuts, a hint of mellow coffee, lactose is evident, and maybe a little over the top if you concentrate on it. Finish is not too impressive, basically the flavor fades and there is a little more char, not a whole lot of added complexity. Body is a bit thin and sticky for the style as well as being a tad high on the carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown pour. Amber head. A little thin to the mouth. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is the same with a little anise and a subtle finishing hop thrown in.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black as night w/ a slight yet luscious head; a killer, spot-on aroma; perfect dark malt flavor, sadly complicated by fusel and over-bittering; a tad thin yet creamy; not perfect, perhaps too complex, but quite quaffable nonetheless.

Very tasty. Points were lost for: lack of head on the bee and i thought it was a little thin when I wanted it to be creamier

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours very dark brown with a dark tan head that is not as thick as hoped for. Good lacing though. Aroma is toasty malts and chocolate. It definitely delivers in the sweet department but fails to have the body to back it up. Overall, pretty ok.
