3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. The pour is a nice black, with a thin tan/khaki head that fades quickly with no lacing. The aroma is different to say the least. It's really sweet smelling, with no real defining character. Hints of chocolate and coffee are drowned out by the sweetness of the nose. The taste isn't bad, with the chocolate taking the dominant role, but everything else is somewhat bland and disappointing. The mouth feel is a bit thin, and the after taste is less than desirable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very black with a crema of brown head. Aroma is baking chocolate with a light smoky note. Taste is the same, with mild fruity notes around the edges, and a minerality that coats the palate.

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.

Bottle; Poured dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma: Cocoa/Coffee/ Malt. Flavor: True to its smell, perfect balance between malt and coffee with a chocolate twist. This was creamy and thick and really delicious.

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 they’re 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 it’s 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.
