3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown almost black with pretty much no head. Very thin palate and not alot of flavors other than the ginger and maybe a hint of coffee. Definitely not anything special but it was kind of interesting and it went well with the stir fry we had for dinner.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A brown ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, a sweet soapy and beany mal. In mouth, a nice dark roasted malt with light treacle and roasted notes, maple wood, not bad. On tap at Somerville Summerfest, July 14, 2012.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours opaque, black as night with a quickly diminishing light brown head. Aroma is dominated by ginger. After many attempts to find something other than ginger,I just can’t. The slight spice from the ginger is pleasant. Remind me of Dogfish Heads Chicory stout with ginger added. I like the creativity of this beer, but i think it should be a little more balanced. This could be a very interesting beer to pair with Asian food.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 5-6 weeks ago. Deep brown with almost no head or lace. Thin but nice aroma of soy, chili, cocoa, lactic sourness. Flavor is earth, soy, lactic tart, chicory coming through strongly. Mouth feel is thin and somewhat "belgian" with a oily body that carries the sour and spiciness for a good bit. This is a comforting stout with a few added dimensions. I like it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
750ml bottle shared by Jimmie, thanks man. Poured a god looking pitch black body with a smaller foamy biege head. Aroma is not very good, somewhere between a combination of ginger, soy sauce, earth and bad choclate. The body is medium with stronger carbonation. Flavor of ginger flavored chocolate, grassy, burnt notes. Meh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours mahogany into a snifter. Mocha head quickly recedes to hug rim. Chocolate, burnt nuts and sour, earthy ginger aromas. Thin with sour ginger upfront turning to chocolate and vanilla in the medium-length finish.
