Black body, small dark tan head, mild espresso nose. Nice mouthfeel, but a little weak in flavor, with sweet coffee, minimal bitterness and a sweet finish. A hint of chocolate lingers.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A decent stout, but nothing that really stands out in my mind. Good roastiness and coffee flavors with a big bitterness in the finish. Moderate thickness and good smooth creaminess.

Opaque black just like your usual stout. Taste is smooth and easy to drink with roasted coffee. A very good drinkable stout. Sometimes stouts like this are a nice break from all of the incredibly robust stouts like expedition and world wide.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2004 Black as sin with a tawny head. Licorice and coffee in the nose comes strong and pulsing. Thick flavor with roasted almond and bitter hops that leave you knowing you just tasted a stout. Perfect carbonation for the style. Very pleasing. A milk stout smell and feel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep chocolate brown body, thin tan/brown head. Rich aroma of chocolate, licorice, and molasses. The body was quite rich and oily with tart rich chocolate, licorice, smoke, and charcoal with a tangy and woody mouthfeel. Reminded me of an English stout or perhaps even a Baltic Porter. Also somewhat similar to Dark Horse Cream Stout but with stronger soy notes. Good stout.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black with a quickly dissipating brown head. Roasty aroma with the usual elements of coffee, and mocha. Nice medium-full body, creamy feel, lots of roasty bitterness but not overly so, balanced nicely by the sweeter nuances. Very good stout.
