Bottle into a goblet. Pours deep, dakr brown with a slight tan head. No real lacing. Aroma od roasted malts, light coffee, and a bit of vanilla. Taste is roast, coffee, chocolate, cola, a bit of vanilla. Very dry and easy drinking. A great full-flavored, sessionable stout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark pour with a big foamy head. Smells of faint toasted notes and vegetal grass with a faint long pepper/body odor smell. Tastes sweet for a dry stout, though there is a fair amount of char and bitter astringency as well. Moderate carb. Plenty of lactic mouthfeel and flavor. I wouldíve like to see more dry hop flavor play out here but I guess thatís not the style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Pours a solid black with a foamy tan head and lots of lacing. It has a medium aroma of toasted malt and some coffee and chocolate. The flavor is light, with toasted malt and chocolate up front leading to a more balanced malt and coffee middle with a dry finish all over a medium body.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a real dark coppery-brown with a decent tan head that hangs around for quite a bit. Aroma is a murky, malty, bready nose with hints of molasses and coffee. Nicely balanced mild malt with a delicate dryness that pleases. Medium body, average carbonation, slightly astringent finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 fl oz bottle aged approximately three years. Pours a near opaque dark brown with a huge but short-lived mocha head. Aromas are roasty malt, licorice, caramel, and some chalk. Taste is chocolate, coffee, with a very subtle bitterness. Medium body, very well balanced flavours, medium carbonation. Very smooth and easy drinking stout! May have really benefitted from mellowing out for a few years. Would love to compare against a freshly brewed bottle.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a near black with foamy tan head. Modest grainy aroma with some sweetness. Lighter feel with a rich carbonation that gets smoother in time, modest roasted flavors of singed malt and a light charcoal smoke with some small fruit flavours from the yeast. Not to shabby, straightforward smooth robust and well roasted. Would be great on nitro.
