3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler. Pours black with slight tan head that fades leaving uneven lacing. Aromas are roast, ash, chocolate and a hint of coffee. Flavors are roast, chocolate, coffee and some hoppy bitterness. Palate is just about perfect when this is cold, but you run into trouble as this warms it gets super heavy almost syrupy and very difficult to drink. Overall this is an above average stout but a disappointment one in the same. I expected more and was let down by this beers shortcomings.

Pours inky black with a big frothy brown head. Aroma is rich roasted malts, a little mocha and a little dark chocolate. Taste is mild carbonation, rich roasted malts, bitter chocolate. Went so well with our steak dinner. Had a few years on it, alcohol was essentially non existent.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 19, 2014 Bottle pour. Black body, with a reddish head that disappears too quickly. Beautiful while it lasts. Smell is coffee, followed by cherries, and then some basic hops. Flavor is roast beans, blackberries, dark bread and some chicory spiciness. Even and well put together.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thick black pour and decent tan head. Burnt chocolate aroma and milk and roastiness. Some chocolate and roasted flavors first but then a weird OFF! Bug spray in the middle to end. Ends sweet and roasty. Don’t know what that is but I might be able to keep the bugs off for awhile. Medium body light carbonation.

Dark brown black. Beautiful lace. Oily feel. Aroma of dusty mocha , mild cherry. Sweet tinge in the nose. Taste of burnt cookies, cocoa, slight red wine grape. This is big and bossy and really really good.
