3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer looks great on the pour. Just what I would expect a stout to look like... dark, opaque, nice creamy head. Not so sure about the aroma. Seems a little flat. All I’m really picking up is a lot of barnyard and cereal...maybe some subtle notes under there.
I can taste the vanilla and a hint of cocoa...but the sweetness seems a tad artificial. The mouthfeel is pretty dry in spite of the mild sweetness...a little thin. Again, the cereal and barnyard take over. Finish is mildly hoppy....ashy.
Not bad but nothing I would seek out.

Rich and varied aromas and tastes. Very full color that does justice to the robust taste. Everything about this beer is positive. Very enjoyable.

Draught at Atwood’s. Pours a deep black/brown, with a thin creamy brown head that dissipates to nothing. Aroma is spectacular for a stout - tons of chocolate, hints of vanilla ice cream, coffee bean, and I detect just the slightest touch of bubblegum? Medium chocolate sweetness with a light super smooth roast bitterness gives this a perfectly balanced no fuss stout flavour. Full, silky smooth, with a chocolatey aftertaste. Absolutely delicious, almost as good as stout gets.

1 pt 9 fl oz bottle sample. Pours a slick engine oil black with a big puffy mocha head. Aromas are big rich chocolate and vanilla. Tastes are not quite as sweet as the aromas would lead you to think. Taste is actually a little on the dry/mildly bitter standpoint making you think more of a coffee/dark chocolate/burnt sugar combination, no vanilla. Medium body, slightly chalky with a medium bitter finish. Very nice beer but must admit that we’re sampling this bottle well after the 90 days recommended the brewer.

Bottle from RobertDale, cheers Bob!! Aroma has notes of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, roasted malts, and a subtle hint of toast on the finish. Nice. Very dark brown that sits black in the glass. Small tan head that mostly diminished and left some lace. Flavor is very sweet and medium/heavy bitter. Palate is full bodied and oily with a soft/average carbonation. Overall a fantastic brew. Nice and complex. Loved it.

Bottle, pours a dark black brown color with a tab head leaving heavy lacing. Very little aroma, slight notes of malt. Maltiness comes through in the flavor, notes of coffee and chocolate. Very pleasant mouthfeel very good stout.

Pours a black/brown color. Nice latte head to this. Getting a lot of milk chocolate here from aroma to flavor. Not thin but not full bodied either and I like that. Not a chewy beer just a nice regular stout with great taste of milk chocolate and coffee.
