3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 mL bottle. Black pour, with a huge, light brown color, and great lacing. The aroma is bittersweet chocolates, molasses, cinnamon, pumpernickel, some light earthiness and just a touch of salt. Sweet flavor, with a slight bitterness from the roasted malts. Medium to heavy body, chalky, but slick, with a relatively clean finish. Overall, this is a nice stout, but nothing too special.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Picked up at the brewpub. This swing top bottle pours with a dark body that supports a tall densely cobwebbed mocha colored head. The aroma is nice and malty with dark roasted malts, musty earthy sweet malts and chocolate malts as well as a dash of earthy dates thinly ringed around the other notes. The taste begins with a sweet maltiness leading quickly into dark roasted malts and earthy chocolate malts. The chocolate gets thick midway just as a robust level of burnt malts tries its best to take the flavor over completely. Wow! This has tons of flavor that work seamlessly together. Nice stuff.
