4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dave says that this is a beer that gives you head, a nice big, foamy lid that leaves patches of lace on the glass. Stout aroma with some coffee and yeast and a little skank. Fairly smooth on the palate, with a strong coffee flavor and sharp, herbal hops. Dry overall with alcohol warmth coming in midswallow. A potent, good tastings stout that makes a nice companion to Middle Ages Wailing Wench. I would have rated it even higher, but for the touch of skank in the flavor and aroma.

My wife brought this one back from a trip to Rochester. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a medium sized foamy brown head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was sweetish, malty and toasty with notes of cherry and berry underneath. The flavor was cherry and port wine followed by toasty malts and a bit of wood. Long almost roasty finish of cherry, port wine and wood. Moderately full bodied. Solid.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours think but black with no head. Aromas of milk chocolate, cream, some roasted coffee. Taste is similar - smooth chocolate milkshake with some hops and roast. Thin mouthfeel is the only thing that detracts from this one. Good.

22 ounce bottle shared by Gillard, poured dark brown aromas of chocolate, dark fruit, light ash, and some earth. Flavors are the same, but extremly oxidized. Its a shame, was hoping that this would be a good one. Will have to find a fresher bottle.
