3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours as black as you’d expect - not much head. Malt nose. Its finish was a bit too sweet for my liking, but I guess that it lived up to its billing lol.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2008 nice stout that grew on me. smooth with good blend of flsvors. my only knock is that it is a bit thin for a stout - borderline porter.

Pours a dark chocolatey brown with a small tan head. The nose is coffe and chocolate with a twinge of licorice. The flavor follows through with nice coffee and slight nuttiness. Nice little hoppy bitterness on the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark black/brown color. Small light brown head. The dry bitter taste is not as good as its aroma. Coffee and dark chocolate with a pretty full body. Thick and creamy texture with some staying power. Decent brew.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with a large off white head.
Lacing is good. Aroma is reminiscent of grass.
Mouthfeel is medium....not real heavy.
Taste has a heavy hint of coffee and just a little bitter in the end. I don’t taste the chocolate that New Holland touts.
This is just so-so.....I wouldn’t write home about it.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is like very sweet caramel, sugary, malty. Flavour is not too exciting, like watery coffee. Average beer.

OK stout - nothing to talk about. Definate coffee aroma and taste. Not much of a stout, more of a bland porter. Not a repeat buy.
