2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz Bottle: Pours dark brown w/ a small light brown head. Aroma is chocolate, smoke (almost ash-like) & roasted malts. Flavor is very similar to the aroma w/ some coffee as well. I’m not quite sure where the sweet is in this stout because I’m not finding it. Not bad, but it’s very close to being too burnt/bitter for me, it’s right on the edge...

Not as sweet as advertised. I’ve had this in the bottle and on tap. Both were great and I’ll look for this one again.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is strong and smoky with hints of fine coffee. It pours a dark, almost opaque, chocolate brown, not quite as dark as most stouts I have tried; head is very thick, tan, fine-bubbled and persistent. Flavor is rich, with an overtone of unsweetened chocolate and strong smoky and coffee hints. It goes down smoothly and leaves an aftertaste like burnt coffee mixed with bitter chocolate.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Poured a deep dark brown with a small amount of head. The flavor was roasted coffee, caramel, and chocolate. A little more like a burnt coffee. Overall, a decent beer, a little too over roasted for my liking.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown pour with small creamy head. Sweet, milk chocolate nose mixed with deep roasty malts. Flavor is much the same, but with coffee and creamy milk notes mixed in. Much better than I anticipated...will certainly buy next fall or winter.
