3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated 3/24/13. Portion of a 22 oz bottle poured into a Hunahpu’s snifter. From notes.
A: Pours a dark brown color that’s seemingly kind of light for the style. The head is a one finger light mocha shade.
S: Some roasted barley influence appears on the nose, backed by light coffee and chocolate. I swear I pick up a bit of oatmeal, too. A bit bland, but decently balanced.
T: The flavor doesn’t come off as roasty as I thought it would from the nose. A light mocha character to start becomes a chocolaty finish. Mellow and balanced, almost to a fault.
M: This one feels a bit thin and insubstantial for me. I could use a bit more creaminess here, but it drinks easily.
O: This is decent. Well balanced, but could be great with a few tweaks.

Aroma is pretty great. The coffee brings a lot to the table here. The expected bitterness is leased by the potential bitterness of coffee. A very mellow beverage for 9%

22 oz bomber. Pours nearly black in color and mostly opaque and topped by a small, smooth layer of tan colored foam that settles slowly into a thin film. Nice streaks of lace coat the glass. The aroma shows notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted coffee, dark and toasted caramel malts, and some earthy bitterness. The flavor follows with the fresh roasted coffee and dark chocolate right up front along with notes of cocoa, toasted caramel, and earthy bitterness on the back end. The chocolate and dark malts help provide sweetness and balance to all the roasty flavors. Medium bodied, round, and slick on the palette, with average carbonation that leads to a lengthy, roasty and cocoa finish. Tasty and well balanced stout. Good stuff.

bottle. Thick black with minimal head. Rich dark chocolate malt base. Coffee is understated compared to the chocolate. Flavors meld into a smooth composite. Minimal booziness. Really well done.

Full body with thick tan head. Smokey and would pair well with dessert.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Pours murky and dark brown with a small, creamy, off-white head. Great retention. The aroma is a mingling of vanilla and mocha – dark chocolate and Cubano espresso. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and airy carbonation. The flavor is very deeply roasted, offering a nice ration of vanilla, followed by acute, burnt, tannic bitterness. Lengthy, bitter finish.

10oz snifter draft at Hop Stop. Smells too thick of hipsters in here to get a good sniff. Taste is chocolate and roasted coffee beans, plenty malty, not too hoppy. Ohhh yeaaa
