3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I had this on draft (nitro) at Maui brewing. Very smooth, aroma of coffee/chocolate, the flavor was mild, it was almost like a "session stout". At 6%, it’s very drinkable

Nitro at the Brewpub. Nice dark pour with nice tight bubble head and lacing. Aromas were somewhat weak but the coffee/chocolate was all there. Flavors didn’t really come through for me. A little muddled and not like the aromas. I was under impressed

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Faint aroma; can hardly smell anything. Mostly opaque body; reddish black with a tan head. Some lace. Oatmeal stout through and through. They nailed the style. Some lactose. Bittersweet chocolate. Fibrant flavors for a nitro. Well done.

Draught at the brewery. Beer is very dark brown, nearly opaque with a large, creamy, light brown, mostly lasting head.<P>
The aroma is shy. Malty with a trace of molasses, light notes of coffee, chocolate, roasted grain; Hoppy with a moderate floral note; Yeasty with a trace of basement; Moderate miscellaneous note of dried stonefruits and currents.<P>
The flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly-to-moderately bitter with a long, moderately bittersweet finish.<P>
The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is soft.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
I drank several of these during our Feb. 2006 visit. This was a good and balanced stout with a great body. It reminded me somewhat of Guiness Extra, but a little sweeter. I drink this one on the mainland if available.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The six beers I had here all had a house character of a very smooth, creamy palate that works in some beers an not iin others. It works well in this one, the best of the bunch. Brown black, nice dense lasting head. Good roasted flavors.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on Maui during my honeymoon! Very dark black. Head lasted for nearly 1 hour until I was able to get to this sampler. Lacing is excellent and thick. Very sweet roasty aroma, like burnt sugar. Very creamy and thick mouthfeel. Light finish, however, as this beer seems to peter out quickly.
