3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours nearly black, even when held up to the light. This is probably the most impressive looking beer Iíve ever seen from magic hat. Small tan head. Aromas of chocolate nesquick, some light roast and a hint of coffee. First sip reveals some moderate roast, some light bittering hops but most of the bitterness is coming from the malts. Finishes dry with a pretty chewy mouthfeel. Damn good offering.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle split with Anndiesel. Brown-black, thin beige head. Chocolate coffee aroma. Sugary and sweet, a little too sweet for me. Not overbearing in body, sort of has all the specialty malt tones of an Imperial Stout without all the underlying depth or booziness. Pretty mediocre overall.

Bottle pour. Very light on the head and carbonation. No weird aftertastes which tends to happen with Magic Hat in my opinion. Good oatmeal elements.

Bottle. Pours black with a tan head that was thick and dense. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts and coffee. Flavor of dark chocolate, licorice, roasted malts and roasted coffee with a dry and bitter finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I love a little Conrad in my beer. I hate the smell of DMS in the evening. Pours black with a small ring of a tan head. Light roast aroma, with some dark fruits, and can of corn. Flavor is more dark fruits and more DMS. Drinkable, but definitely flawed.

Bottle purchased at Kroger on Polaris. Darkest brown to black pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of malt, licorice, chocolate, slight smoke, roast and fig. Malty and roasty flavor with slight chocolate before an ashy and thin finish.

Opaque black with a medium sized, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Roma of roasted malts, oatmeal, cocoa, and burnt toast. Taste of roast, cocoa, oatmeal, and a creamy finish

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Satisfying if unspectacular stout. Pours black with no head. Not thin, but not thick in mouthfeel. Good roastiness with a nice bitterness. Minor chocolate notes.
