3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark reddish-brown color with a thin tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, and toffee. Flavor is generally the same with strong coffee and chocolate flavor. For a beer that doesn’t have that much alcohol it’s a little stronger then expected. A good stout but I’ll drink plenty of others before this one.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Most coffeeish aroma ever. Flavor was very sweet and bitter coffee. Mouthfeel was best ever... soft and silky. WHAT A JEWL!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured to a drak brown with hints of red, thin tan head and some lacing. Aroma was strongly malt, chocolate and toffee, with coffee smell becoming more evident at mid-glass. Flavor pretty much follwed these same lines, and the finish was primarily the same as I get after finishing my morning coffee.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pretty run of the mill stout. Pours black with a nutty coffee type flavor. A bit light on the alc% but I guess overall not too bad.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2007 Black body. Sweet taste at first that fades to more of a coffee taste. Good but for a stout I expect a bit more.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’ve had this beer a million times, but for some reason I’m just now getting around to rating it. From draught: pours red-black with small beige head. The aroma is roasty and sweet with some molasses. The flavor is mildly roasty with a molasses-like sweetness, nuttiness, a little bit of baking chocolate, subtle hops toward the finish, and a sweet slightly woody aftertaste. Something seems to be lacking in the middle, though I’m not sure what, but it doesn’t detract too much from the overall quality.

12 oz bottle. Pours an opaque brown/black with a brown head. Aroma has chocolate and coffee. Pretty sweet flavor and a smooth mouth feel.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a deep near-opaque brownish black with a thin tan head. Very stout-like aroma of roasted malt, black coffee, bittersweet chocolate and nuts that also carries over into the flavor. A bit more bitter than I expected for a sweet stout; nothing pronounced about the milk sugar ... maybe a slight mellowing of the palate and the flavors. Decent mouthfeel, good lacing. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Top notch aromas of chocolate and hazelnut. Great lacing from the dark and brown stout. Add coffee on the flavor and a malty sweet finish. A fairly light sweet stout on the palate, but still long on the finish. Not the finest in the style, but a nutty, good effort. Low alcohol, which is good, since I doubt the light textures could mask it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep translucent brown with a big frothy head. Strong roasting is present in the aroma. This is definatly sweet, with a creamy smooth body, and clean finish. This is a very good beer.
