4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Rich dark black color, creamy sticky brown head that leaves a clingy lace in my glass. Chocolate and burnt coffee aroma. Dark roasted malty flavor, nice bitter- burnt dry finish, medium bodied with a full and creamy mouthfeel, this is an awesome stout.

Very nice stout after I let it age in the bottle. Good roast and chocolate aromas. Deep ,dark, oil black, color. Very nice stout flavor. God clean drinkable beer. This is not some massive Imperial stout, just a good, full flavored Ozark stout beer,

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
In my opinion this is one of the most consistent and finest stouts available anywhere in the country. The beer is now so sought after, that one of Chadís clients from California (when heís traveling thru Missouri on business) will detour 100 miles out of his way off Interstate 44 just to pick up a 1/2 barrel to take back home with him. I wish there were more small craft brewers around like Chadís Little Yeoman Brewery - an American classic that is highly recommended by all who are lucky enough to visit this place.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle purchased from the brewery. This has to be the tiniest "brewery" Iíve visited, literally a converted garage run by one person off a rural road in the heart of the Missouri Ozarks. But, craft beer is indifferent to geography, working its way into any little crease or crevice it can find in our varied landscape. This stout pours deep, opaque brown, topped by a medium tan head. Aroma is roasty, with molasses, coffee, and chocolate providing complexity. Roasted malt body with burnt caramel, apple skin, molasses, and coffee, an odd yet intriguing medley. I have to think the apple notes are a mistake, but they donít ruin the beer. Overall, this stout delivers.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with beerhandy. I found this one, forgotten, at the back of the fridge. Bottle labeled, drink before March (good thing it was in the fridge the whole time). Poured a dark black with an averaged sized tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, caramel, and chocolate. Tastes of chocolate, roated malts, caramel, and light coffee. Body on the thinner side.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle via trade with beerhandy - Thanks Chris! - Pours black with a large rocky tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, and a touch of smoke. Flavor is much more rich. Chocolate, caramel, coffee, and roasted malts. Some nice hops finish it off. Body is very creamy and smooth. A fair amount of carbonation. A very drinkable stout. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours with a rich black body with dark brown edges and a thin dark tan head. Has a dry caramely butterscotch and black olive aroma with some dark fruitiness and lightly roasted malt. Body starts with a good light caramel sweetness and some nice bitter hoppy balance. Has a roasty dark chocolate finish. An enjoyable stout.

Pours a thick, rich black with a frothy beige head of clinging lace. Aroma is smoke, roasted malt, and chocolate. Taste is more of the same. This is a fine stout; wish I had access to more bottles or a tap. Good stuff.

Bottle. Very dark black opaque pour. Bit roasty malt and coffee aromas, with light bits of chocolate. More roasty malt flavors, some coffee again. Very nice for a stout I thought.

Poured a very dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of milk, coffee, and chocolate Nice roasted flavor but a little dull. Maybe should have drank this first. Smooth body. Surprisingly good for relatively unknown beer.
