3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle sampled at the Hopsnobbery Collective stout tasting on 1.16.09. Gushes and then pours darkest brown with a huge tan head. Dry aroma that is somewhat sour. Flavor is a bit metallic and watery. Not much going on here. Not good, especially when compared to the other stouts we tasted.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampledat the Hopsnobbery Collective Stout tasting on 01/16/09. This brew pours brownish black with a medium thin and fizzy beige head that burns away quickly. Latticework lacing. Milk chocolate and mild coffee in the nose. Thin body for a Stout and sort of creamy, with flavors of roasted coffee and malt. Just a touch of hops as well. The finish is short and roasty with a mild coffee aftertaste. Just average overall.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I like stouts and I was looking forward to relaxing after dinner with this stout and some chocolate but...a bit disappointing: dark copper color, a fizzy going, going, gone head; strong aroma of coffee, some chocolate; a light mouthful for a stout which I think was the most disappointing; the taste had some nice smoke and bitter quality and the finish was short
