4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with zero head to it. Some bitterness and roasting coming off the nose. Taste has some bitterness to it, though the malts balance it out well. Interesting stout...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mörkt brun öl med ett ljusbrunt skum. Doft av rostad malt, kaffe och choklad. Samma återkommer i smaken. En "midle of the road" stout. Sticker inte ut.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured on tap in San Diego it has a nice look in the glass but it definitely fell short. There is some vanilla on the nose along with some roasted malts. After that the beer just fell off. Maybe I should have asked for a new beer because there was very little taste. It was smooth but only picked up on a little bit of licorice. Very disappointed.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had to drink out of the bottle as I was camping and had no glass available, so no color notes. Toasty aroma and taste. Hints of chocolate, but toasted malts were not over done as is often the case with stouts and porters. Really good for a dark beer.

Dark, rich, medium-heavy body. The beer has a lot of roasted malts and coffee. A lot of flavor without the typical high alcohol bite at 5.6%. Smooth.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This one falls into the "I can't believe I haven't rated this yet" category. Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma contains lots of roasted malts along with coffee and chocolate. Taste is mostly what you would expect from the aroma. Similar, except I get much more coffee and even some smokey elements. Good amount of carbonation for this style. Aftertaste is smokey with chocolate. Quite dry as well. Overall, this is a very solid stout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Appearance: dark brown/black with a minimal tan head. Aroma: roasted malt, fruit I can't place, molasses, some ash. Taste: very similar to aroma but with fruit-ish/tartness notes that I still can't place, that ashiness and very light sweetness, dark chocolate, molasses and coffee. Mouthfeel: fairly thin w. low to mid carbonation. Overall: it's pretty unique and good for a standard dry stout but nothing out of this world.
