3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pour into tulip glass from Redstone’s Liquors, Stoneham, MA. Aroma is chocolatey and coffee, roasted malts. Appearance is opaque black with persistent light brown ring of head with mild lacing. Taste is moderate sweet chocolate with moderate coffee bitterness that dominates second half. Palate is light bodied with thin texture and dry bitter coffee finish. Overall, very good but dominated a bit more by bitter than I like and a little thin.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Un’outmeal stout di grande spessore. Si presenta di un color nero, con riflessi lievi ramati, schiuma fine marroncino ed evanescente. Al naso predomina il caffè e poco spazio è lasciato ai luppoli, che invece predominano nel finale, molto amaro e resinoso. Il corpo ben strutturato, con carbonazione bassa e bollicine finissime, è molto morbido per via dell’avena. Sorso pieno, facile bevuta e buon retrogusto.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dated best by January 29, 2018 enjoyed October 21, 2015 in a Mad Elf tulip/snifter.
Look - Dark brown body. Slow to develop tan head fine to medium bubbles dissipates quickly to a ring. I am not seeing much sediment as expected. Pin point lacing and nothing more.
Smell - Chocolate. Coffee. Sweet.
Taste - Chocolate. Coffee. Cardboard. Char.
Feel - I like how heavy it is for abv. Carbonation explodes with swallow.
Overall - Not as dirty as I like my breakfast stouts. More on the milk chocolate side as opposed to dark chocolate. Light on the char. Nice feel for their low abv stout.
