3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Roast malt aroma has notes of coffee, licorice and unsweet chocolate. It pours a dark-chocolate brown with a fairly thick pale tan head. Flavor has roast malt, roast coffee, licorice, woody hops, and subtle chocolate notes. Texture seems a bit thin for a stout, and lacks fizz. A decent, if not superior, stout, worthy of at least a fair shake.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Tosa Wine. Pours an opaque black with a brown head. Aroma has chocolate, molasses and caramel. Taste is of bittersweet chocolate, sweet caramel, some roast and rolled oats. Medium bodied. Perhaps a touch thin for a stout. Finishes nicely bittersweet with some length. Tasty effort from an inconsistent brewery.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 fl oz / 355mL bottle into a Guinness glass. Served cold.
Aroma: Wow chocolate milk! Some nice roasty malts backing it up. Chocolate really is the biggest aroma presence. And it smells quite lovely
Appearance: Completely opaque, thick, dark brown. A dark tan head dissipates quickly.
Taste: Roasted malts are a big presence, but theyíre not overpowering. Dark chocolate is right there underneath the roast. Quite tasty.
Palate: Smooth and palate coating. Not very creamy. Pretty decent.
Overall: Wow what a great stout! Not my favorite in the whole world, but itís very pleasant. The contrast between the chocolate aroma and the roasted flavor are fun, and, while I prefer creamier stouts, this one felt quite smooth. Very good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle pours with a dark brown body supporting a weak tan head. The aroma has sweet malts mixing with moderately roasty malts as well as an earthy malt note or two. The taste delivers roasted malts, chocolate malts and a thin sting of malt sweetness that is binding everything together. Behind those malt notes is a light sweet layer of molasses. Pretty nice.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sat in my refrigerator until waay out of season, but itís still delightful. Inky black with a thin khaki head. Lovely nose of sweet dark chocolate bar with s hint of coffee beans and roasty caramel. Flavor is rich and creamy with a sweet dark chocolatiness that isnt cloying or overbearing, as itís balanced out by some roasty black malts and a wee bit of artisan mild-roast coffee beans. Finishes with a smokey chocolatiness.
