3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had this out of a bottle. Poured nice. Head was a little thin i thought. Aroma smelled of slight chocolate and mild roast coffee. Appearance was dark but when held up to a light a lot came through. Mild carbonation which was expected. Taste was lightly sweet. some bitter chocolate. Slight creaminess. Balanced with hop bitterness. Not a bad stout overall.

Better than your average Magic Hat, certainly. Sweeter and more chocolatey than most comparable stouts. Smoother moutfeel as well. Has a velvety texture that’s pretty appealing.

Dry, burnt notes, and some chocolate milk. Good mouthfeel. Nothing to write home about, but Magic Hat normally can’t brew a drinkable beer to save their lives, and this isn’t at all bad.

It pours a pitch black giving the same color body. A full lumpy white one inch head appears and lasts for a good five minutes. The body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising. The smell has some coffee and chocolate up front but in good balance with a nice roastiness to it. The taste is basically the same with a dry bitter aftertaste and finish. The palate is about a medium, fairly creamy with nothing harsh on the tongue. It is mostly drinkable, probably could have several of these in a session. Overall, this is good for the style and good for me.
