3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Fresh and Easy: Appeared a dark brownish tinted black liquid topped with a decent formation of foam head. What really surprised me about this stout was the aroma, it has so much character because of the rich dark malts used that bring about scents of fresh ground coffee bean and hints of chocolate. The flavor is less promising than my nose had led me to believe but it still does hold a mild blend of coffee bean while also allowing for a roasty flavor and a taste of sweetness as if I had added a shot of cream to my pint glass. The balance of the flavors is somewhat off but for only $2 for a bomber size bottle, I feel I shouldn’t be complaining or have such high expectations.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bomber The stout pours dark brown in color with a rather sizable tan head. The head dissapated but a thin layer stayed with the beverage. Some lacing the aroma was of coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. The roasted malt and cocoa are the most dominant flavors. The body was medium wih a soft carbonation. This is a purchase from Trader Joe’s. Not bad for an evening of stout drinking.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared by a friend at the 5th Annual Coldest Day of the Year Stout Tasting on 1/26/13. Darkest brown pour with a medium tan head. Grainy malt nose with some chocolate. Malty and chocolatey flavor with some butter character in the finish. I think there’s a reason this one is priced so low.

Pours black with a chocolate milkshake head.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a thick near-black color with a huge tan head on it. Taste is actually a little bit dry - almost like a dry stout. Has some roasting in there, but not bad. Not a lot of substance to this.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
this stout had a brown-black pour and made a one finger light tan & tan colored head that receded to a thin cover, it left some spots and fingers of lacing on the sides of the glass,
this beer had aromas of roasted malt, chocolate, some caramel, malt sweetness,
it had flavors of roasted malt, chocolate, chocolate syrup, the finish had a little bitterness with some malt flavor following,
the mouth feel was thin and felt a little syrupy on the palate, it had average carbonation,
the nose and flavor of this beer was typical of a cheap beer, nothing special here, no definition to the aroma or flavor, a poorly made drink.
