3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2016 12oz bottle poured into a snifter. The aroma is a mellow roasted coffee beans with a sweet cherry and fudge with nut. Secondary notes include a fading molasses, a smokey wood character, some caramel, and a touch of light leather. It pours a dark caramel red-brown with a tan doughy foam head that has good lace and a moderate soapy retention. The taste is medium sweet with a complimentary medium light bitter. The texture is fairly thin and slick with a soft fizz carbonation. The medium body?s flavor profile is bready with mild licorice and molasses that becomes fudge with nuts and finishes smokey and roasty with a taste of overbaked chocolate chip cookies and nutty fudge, and light roasted coffee. It?s aftertaste is coffee and cola with a mild, musty leather.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle. Pours a dark brown to black with a medium tan creamy head. Medium body, clingy with light carbonation. Aroma of sweet roasted malts with a hint of coffee. Smooth roasted malts, not bitter or harsh. Flavors linger a bit but aren’t very bold. Enjoyable but feels a little light for a stout. Great if you don’t want that heavy bloated feeling.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle - pours a deep black color with a thin tan head. I really liked the aroma, especially as it warmed up - fudge, chicory coffee, peat and licorice. Similar roasty and cocoa flavors are abundant. Creamy but dry mouthfeel. Delicious, solid and well made front line stout.
