Bottle thanks to Tom. Pours black with a little head that lingers. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and alcohol. Nice full bodied mouthfeel that follows the nose. Ends with a sharp hops bitter with a little dryness. Alcohol is well hidden in this one. Not as robust as I would like it but pretty tasty none the less.

Black body, tanned head. Some ash, liqourice and burnt malts in aroma. Way too dry and not in balance. It is ok, but something is missing.

I got this from Da and Erica(my kids) for my B-day present. Wow, the foam on this kept coming after the pour was done. Stayed high and thick for a long time. Poured motor oil black. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, and sweet chocolate. Flavors of coffee, and sweet chocolate malt. Smooth drinking stout with great flavor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours black with an above average sized tan head. The aroma is dry roasted malts, black coffee, chocolate and an earthy quality. The flavor has more roasted dark malts and hints of coffee, but develops a dry bitterness that takes away from the other flavors, namely the sweetness. The chocolate in the nose can’t stand up to the growing bitterness. Medium plus bodied and good, but nothing that stands out as great.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle. Pours black and is almost impervious to light. A careful pour netted a full 2 finger creamy off white head which receded leaving a good amount of lace. Huge chocolate malt aroma with secondary caramel and coffee. Medium to heavy body with a slight amount of carbonation. Flavor is dominated by chocolate, but one can pick up some dark fruit as well. Dangerously easy drinking as it goes down smooth with no boozy aroma or taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle. Pours a pure black color with a medium brown head. The aroma is chocolate, some piny hops. The flavor is good; a fairly dry flavor of both milky sweet and bitter chocolates, some light hops, easygoing, medium roasted malts. Tasty and easygoing. They made what they wanted here I’d say.
