Roasty and a slight chocolate note on the nose w/ a hint of coffee. The pour was nice and opaque, thick w/ brown hues. There was no head and only slight lacing. The flavor was roasty and good coffee w/ hints of chocolate on the back of the tongue. The mouthfeel was thin and slightly watery w/ smooth, well- rounded body.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown with a quickly dissipating head. Classic oatmeal flavours with silky mouth feel. Hints of chocolate and malt. No sign of the promised "heavy hops" which may have balanced some of the sweetness. Has a slightly sickly sweet finish like a milk stout but overall really nice to drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
BOD 2/18/14. Pours pitch black. Outstanding head volume and retention, world class lacing.
Typical nose of chocolate and roast.
Medium body with a smooth texture that has some slickness. Slightly above normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice prickly burst in the finish.
The flavor profile is moderately intense, not complex but is well balanced. It is a mild roast and chocolate blend from start through the finish. The middle brings a mild bitterness coupled with a mild malt sweetness. The finish is a slow fade of roast and chocolate. A good stout.

12 oz bottle enjoyed on vacation with my sister and brother-in-law in California. The pour is a medium black with a little lighter brown notes poking around the edges and a little lighter khaki colored ring of head. The aroma is full of roasted malts and medium chocolate. There is a good lactose sweetness happening here as well. Not a whole lot else happening. The flavor is surprisingly sweet. There is a good chocolate and lactose there, but it's a basic milk stout in my honest opinion. The mouth feel is light and the aftertaste is lingeringly sweet and malty. Pretty decent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bière foncée aux reflets rubis affichant un certain collet blanchâtre. La bière est un stout de soif: arômes de café léger, malts grillés mais le tout est subtile et sans caractère. Je sens un peu de bois mais sans plus. C’est léger et mal défini. Texture aqueuse, saveurs qui sont la continuité du nez. Cette bière n’est pas une bière de dégustation; elle se boit aisément mais ne présente rien qui vaille la peine de s’arrêter à elle.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2015 Roasted coffee and dark chocolate with a nice touch of sweetness. Some hops underpin the classic stout elements and the moderate effervescence and richness make it a nice drinkable beer
