3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fading, ripply beige head and dark but translucent body. Chocolatey, roasty nose and flavor. Bitter chocolate finish. Unexceptional.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark and rather thin with a small light head. Light roasted malt and creamy aroma. Flavor is lightly sweet malt, with creamy vanilla tones, finishes lightly sweet with roasted coffee tones. Rather thin and too milky.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep dark brown, almost black. Quick dying head. Nice roasty, chocolatley, slightly smokey with a hint of lactose and vanilla nose. Medium bodied at best, roasty, smooth, milk sweet, hints of chocolate, quaffable. Decent cream stout, suprised if this is really 7%.

I made the misfortune of looking at other ratings, and I am surprised they are so low. I am liking this stout. Smallish head, deep ruby in appearance. Sweet flavor, some roasted malt (not much) very creamy with a hoppy balance. A very nice sweet stout.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep dark ruby brown. Soda like fizzy head. Sweetened coffee nose. Pleasant flavors, coffee, chocolate, faint licorice, subtle smoke, milky sweet. Somewhat thin body ruins this one in my opinion.

I am not digging this - watery, and sour, these negatives come in as it warms and later in the finish - certainly a healthy dose of chocolate milky malt and some roastiness (not a lot), and it is pretty true to style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice black color,small brown head that faded quick leaving nothing behind.Strong coffee and dark chocolate aroma,with a nice roasted malt coming through nicely.Nice flavor of roasted malt coffee and sweet chocolate,nice creamy feel.Very nice sweet brew with plenty of flavor and not over the top on the coffee like i thought it might be just from the aroma.Well worth having a few more around for later.Thanks go to Suttree for sending this fine brew.

Poured a dark brown that light could escape through.
Aroma waa slightly smoky roasted malt and not much else.
Tast is again slightly smoky, slightly roasted, slightly tart. Pretty much slight in every category but it did have some stuff goin on.
Mouthfeel started to coat the tongue but was indeed quite thin, I really thought it fell short in this category.
Drinkability is good because this is quite light and easy drinking, now whether you'll want another one is another story as it's not too interesting.
