Bottle; watery and overly burnt tasting. Not even very dry for a dry stout.

Nice dark color. Aroma is malty, cocoa and cream. Flavor from cocoa and chocolate, somewhat peppery. Really nice...

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wow an excellent brew! This bottled brew poured a large sized head of foamy fine to medium sized brown colored long lasting bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body was a semi-transparent very dark ruby red brown colored with no visible carbonation. It had a most excellent coffee dark malt caramel and molasses aroma. The mouth feel was smooth with a very mild coffee bite. The flavor was also smooth with a good chewy dark malt coffee hop taste. A very nice brew that I will seek out a a session standard.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice coffe aroma. Dark in color but no black. Small, dense head. Flavor is big coffee up front with a watery middle and a bad finish. Finish was like old celery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
As my wife pointed out, just a little too carbonated. No head at all. A little sour, definite coffee flavor. A sweeter stout. Nice.

Roasted chocolate malts dominate the aroma. This one is creamy and smooth up front with a biting dryness at the end, which is really pleasent. Nice flavor of smoke and cream. Quite good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decently thick, off-white head over sweet smelling, dark brown (cola) stout. Very dry taste. Reminds me off dark chocolate. I don't get too much coffee. I found this beer to be quite enjoyable, but was a little pricy for what it was.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark black with a nice head and lots of lace. Malty espresso aroma. Taste is toffee malts with strong coffee tones, lightly sweet and bitter. The flavors could all stand to be a little more pronounced and it its a little on the thin side.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. This beer poured a small sized tan head with fine-small sized bubbles that completely dissipated. The body was opaque and uncarbonated with a dark brown hue. The nose was chocolate and coffee. The flavor of this beer was that of coffee with a smooth mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown with ruby edges, and almost no head. Roasted aroma, but with hints of licorce as well. Very dry taste, but with glimpses of roasted coffee, and malts. Good bitter finish as well. Maybe a bit on the weak side of a stout as far as assult on the taste buds, but a good beer.
