2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
The aroma is the best thing about this sweet stout. The pour is thick and viscous, and has a rather foamy, tan bubbly head. The taste of this one is STRONG- an intense roasted flavor, which may have appeal to some, but didn’t to me, and I love stouts known for roast flavors. Polish Moon, we were just not meant to be.

Dark black translucent color with minimal tan head and very little lacing. Aroma and flavor have thin roasted malts, light cocoa, and slight coffee. Simple and thin. Okay overall.

Opaque black brown. Light tan head. Intensely sugary nose, coffee, some earthiness. Quite bitter, strongly sweet. Heavier body, somewhat creamy mouthfeel, longish finish. Pleasant enough.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle poured into a CCB snifter.
Dark brown, but not completely opaque with a quickly receding light brown head. Almost gone by the time I got to the table with it.
Roasty, bits of chocolate. The smell isn’t overwhelming. What I would expect from a weak stout.
The taste is immediately chocolate and coffee bitterness, giving way to... nothing. It has almost no back end flavor. Nothing gross or sickly, which I was a bit afraid of. Just nothing.
Very watery, not thick at all. High carbonation makes it feel like coffee made from club soda.
Nothing overtly offensive, just not worth drinking.

Dark black body, not much head, some lacing. Warm bready aroma, some funk. Taste is sweet with some roasted malts and a watery finish. Palate is on the soft side.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Bottle] Nearly black pour with a nice cap of dense beige head. Nose of lactose, charred malts and dark chocolate. Chocolate, mild coffee, malted milk, molasses and a general roast character in the taste. Thinner than average. OK.
