3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle, variety pack. Aroma is a bit nutty, malty, and coffee. The color is black with minimal tan head. Has a sweet, tobacco, and coffee like taste. Slick texture, medium body, with bitter finish. Overall, I wasn’t a fan of the tobacco like taste and prefer my stouts a bit more full bodied.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: nutty, bakers chocolate, very subtle hint of red wine. Taste: nutty, bittersweet chocolate, just enough malty-ness maybe a hint of dark fruit possibly fig? Pours a beautiful rich midnight brown, with a cappuccino colored head, and the after taste of fresh milled oatmeal mixed with melted bakers chocolate.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dusty, nutty malt aroma. Some sugary sweetness.
Brown color with a red tinge. Decent off-white head; completely opaque.
Flavor is sweet, nutty malts, like an oatmeal. Hazelnut at first, then sweeter. Touch of tobacco ashes. A curious blend.
Palate is sandpapery. Medium-bodied. Magic Hat surprises. This is a solid stout/porter. Nice and nutty. It’s so competent that Magic Hat will surely discontinue it soon.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Single bottle. Completely opaque, dark dark brown pour with a medium tan head. Aroma is what you’d expect - dark chocolate, coffee grounds, roasted malts. Taste follows. Not much to talk about with this one, just a good solid stout.
