3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark brown with reddish highlights and a medium sized creamy beige head. The aroma is chocolate, dark fruits, roasted, with an overall sweetness. The flavor is again chocolate, a hint of coffee, roasted malt, and dark fruits. I kept hoping there would be more to chew on with this one. Overall a decent sweet stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2012 On draft at The Federal, Durham. I was eyeballing my neighbor’s pint, which turned out to be this brew, and I’m glad I dialed up a couple of these. A very nice thick pour, with an impressive lasting head. Nice sweet malt aroma and a huge mouthfeel, with more roasted qualities than I expected. Nice stuff.

Draft. Mini tan head dissipates fairly soon. Peppy carbonation. I sense caramel. A decent stout.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown colour with a beige head. On the nose I got lots of sweet milk chocolate, roasted malts and coffee beans and some soy sauce. The flavour profile is round and quite sweet - not an aggresive sweetness, more like a sweetness that lingers in the background. Notes of coffee with milk, milk chocolate. A little thin on the mid-palate. The finish is a bit roasted, without any trace of sourness or bitterness. I liked this one!

355 ml bottle from a trade with Degarth. pours dark brown with red edges and not much head. aromas are coffee and chocolate but not big. i had to go searching for the aroma but once i found it i was pleased. flavours are some bitterness followed by milk chocolate. whats there is good i just wish the mouthfeel was fuller and the flavours were amped up. pretty good beer and very much apreciated as a bonus bottle! thx Degarth!
