2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours almost obaque black overed with a fluffy, frothy, coffee head. Not much in the nose, chocolate chips and malt. Taste is very dry with good carbonation. Slight coffee, but not a major flavor. Interesting linger I can't put a finger on.

Dark black pour with a white head. Not super smooth and a bitter finish. Notes of toast and chocolate good but not great.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clássica Stout. Sabor e aroma de malte torrado com toques de café e algo de chocolate. Corpo médio com boa formação de espuma. Lágrimas na taça e escura como a noite. No palato um leve amargor, simplesmente deliciosa.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2014 Pours a dark brown. Little hazy. Thin with a bit higher hop presence than I?m used to in a stout. Nothing to write home about. Middle of the road beer. Unfortunatly forgetable.

"not as good as it used to be (all Mendo brews have gone a little downhill over the last few years), but it’s still a solid effort. all the right roasted, malt flavors...decent hop balance, just a touch underwhelming."

Very low on flavor for the style although the tastes that do surface is quite pleasant. Pretty thin and a wee bit watery on the finish.

Some coffee and roast but ingredients don’t mesh well. Pours black, OK head and lacing. Thick consistently. Kind of an oaky astringent finish. Bottle.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home from backlog notes. Pours dark brown in color with a small khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, some powdery dark chocolate, earthy bitterness, dry finish, thin body detracts.
