3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The flavor of this beer is a burnt dark chocolate and coffee; a little over done. While this is supposed to be an extra strong stout, the idea of over burning the chocolate and coffee made for a bad mix with such a high level of alcohol. This particular brew has a very oily texture, due to it’s almost complete lack of carbonation. My palate was left with no real after taste, other than the fact that my mouth feels really greasy. Those of you who enjoy extra strong stouts with extreme burnt flavorings may love this beer. However, this brew was not my cup of tea.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Very dark brown, average and mostly diminishing dark brown head. Moderate to full, malty and sweetish aroma, faint roasted malt, light coffee and faint salty licorice. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, faint roasted malt and light coffee, faint alcohol. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, faint roasted malt and light coffee with light licorice, light alcohol. Way too sweet stout for me - could really use some bitterness. Don’t believe the hype.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thus is a very good stout. Traditional, but very high abv which is masked. Chocolate and coffee, what you would expect from a stout.

The brew pours black with a frothy, dark brown head that had some lacing. The is an aroma of coffee and raisins. There is a bit of chocolate and other sweet, fruit like smells. It has a rich, smooth coffee taste with some sweet tastes with a bit of a bitter ring on the palate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black, with a nice big mocha head. Aroma of roast, bitter chocolate, and some raisins. Taste roasty, medium bodied, with a sweet mid-palate, and a dry ending. Hides the alcohol really well. Nice and easy drinking.
