3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle courtesy of Sparky27. Thanks! And finally I have an Arizona rating that’s not Cave Creek Chili Beer. Woot! Pours a very, very dark brown color. Thin head with good head retention and fair lacing. Very nutty roasted malt aroma with caramel and oats. Taste is nuts, caramel, chocolate, smoke. Medium bodied.

Black with some red at the top. Pale, syrupy smoke and hop aroma that is a little sweet, somewhat resembling oats. Full, robust, smokey... yes, very smokey. I like.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to Flaco Alto for this. Jet black pour with 2-finger brown head. One of the browner heads you will ever see. Aroma of molasses, chocolate syrup, coffee, hoppy peppery hints. The taste is roasty malty, with chocolate and coffee, some anise and nut hints, and some peppery finishing hints. Medium palate with a creamy finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark nearly opaque brown with a nicely-lacing tan head. Sweet roasty oatmeal lactose aroma has lots of vanilla and milk chocolate. Body starts with some mild buttery vanilla sweetness finishing more dry with a lingering milk chocolate roastiness. An interesting and unique stout, but could be a little more balanced.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottles thanks to a couple fine folks! Poured a clear, deep chocolatey brown with short, but coating cap of brown head. Aroma was quite lovely with roasted milk chocolate and cocoa accompanied by some lactose sugars... picked up a bit of vinous quality as it warmed up. The flavor had a darker, rather burnt roast to it with cocoa and more of the milky sugars representin’... left some chalky roast at the finish. Medium-bodied with a decent flow to it.. again a bit chalky.

Bottle. Pours a dark black with a very thick tan head. A touch of grain, some sweet oatmeal notes, and a bit of old paper. Medium bodied, little bit of cola, and a lot of stale paper and cardboard. Uncharacteristically sweet finish with some bitterness and more paper.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy of gunhaver. Pours dark brown with thin off white head. The aroma is very nice and inviting with roast, molasses, some toffee, chocolate and smooth mild burnt malts. The taste begins thin with roast and burnt malts then moving into hints of molasses and chocolate. The burnt malts grow into the finish. The nose overstated the goodness of the flavor. Still mighty fine though.
