3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Label is Apache Trout Stout. Minimal head. Has a nice chocolate, coffee aroma. Rich, malty and has an emerging sweetness that leads to a dry finish. Very enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Another one i must thank mitch for! This beer pours a typical stoutie brown and black mix with no head but a very active carbonation level as was evidenced by the little bubbles attacking the sides of my pint glass. The aroma is a mixture of coffee, and chocolate malts with a hint of coffee bean and vanilla..perhaps a plastic hint or two as well. The taste is definitely chocolate malts and roasted coffee flavor upfront with a nice slightly bitter and grainy vanilla and chocolate finish. A slight souring quality right at the finish. Nice mouthfeel..pretty light bodied for a stout as the carbonation level is active yet somehow held in check once its in your mouth. A doable stout...

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This poured as black as the eyes of night, a very short lasting tan head. Had coffee aroma, bitter chocolate taste with very little sweetness and a medium palate. Finished dry, it left a taste in my mouth like I had just finished a cup of expresso. It's good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark brown color. Large head. Aroma is roasted malts and chocolate. A full-bodied stout. Malts are deeply roasted, chocolate, coffee and slightly sweet. Nice texture, falls just a little short of velvety, but very nice. Hints of vanilla and cherries as it warms. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A dry stout that is well balanced but a little sweet as dry stouts go. What was interesting was that there was a lingering sootiness in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tried this one on draft at the brew pub. Not much of a head on this full bodied stout. Nicely balanced semi sweet dry finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flavor is very much to style, a pretty decent stout, better than most. Overall, average and not terribly exciting, lacking some depth, but OK to drink.
