3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle. Pours a viscous black with a thin head of dark khaki colored foam. Aroma is raisin, toffee, wood, and something on the verge of tartness. Taste has more of the dark fruits, raisin sweetness going on. Really like the raisin taste in this beer.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Draught. Pours a pitch black body, with a dark brown head that diminishes slowly, leaving a very good lace. Aroma dominated by vanilla, coffee and chocolate. Medium to heavy sweet taste, with notes of vanilla, coffee, chocholate and rum, exceptional. Smooth texture, low carbonation, heavy body. This was a beer to remember...Very close to a perfect ten.

Aroma of sweet toffee, caramel, and chocolate. Pours black with white film. Tastes light with nice dark fruits, wood oak notes, and finishes with sweet roast. Solid, especially for the price.

3.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Served in a snifter. Pours almost jet black with very little head or aroma. Thick mouthfeel. Hints of cola and red wine grapes. Rich, prevalent flavors of wood and alcohol but with a smooth finish. Be sure to drink this one at the recommended 55-60 degrees; the flavors open up significantly. A very good stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light aroma for style licorice dark fruit, some bourbon, brown sugar. Black with brown edges. Off white head. Well intergrated bourbon, some chocolate....but everything is kind of subdued. Kind of like it’s aged. Nice in a way, busurprising... Wood and cherry come out on aroma with warmth.
