3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not as good as I hoped it would be, and that the aroma suggested. Aroma was rich with sweet chocolate and smoky bitters. Taste lacked that sweetness and overplayed the charred and smoky flavors. Combined with the bitter chocolates, it was a bit much. Maybe would have been better paired with a sweet chocolate dessert, but on its own I kept looking for that sweetness that would provide complexity.

A very good stout. Pours a beautiful black with a tan head. Smells like chocolate covered fruit. Taste is great, starts off sweet, some orange zest in the middle, and a slightly hoppy aftertaste. Had on tap at the brewery.

Bottle inadvertently aged since I think I brought this from Vegas and just found it in a box. Aroma is a little sweet and hint of booze. Really nice and mellow flavor with dark malt and hints of bitter coffee. Pretty nice.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smell is dry boozy. Almost a strange citrus note. Looks fine. Black. Cream head. Good on the taste but nothing special like an average stout. Same with palate. Overall this is a fine beer but nothing special. Drinks like any average stout.
