Bottle from ...not sure. Almost black with tan ring and a little lace. Roasted coffee chocolate and wet earth and old wood. Dark chocolate roasted coffee and some mild red grape with woody bitter fairly dry finish. Surprisingly thin body but not watery. Sessionable. Pretty good.

Who doesn’t like a 4.99 bomber of a decent style?
After a much more powerful beer this felt subdued. Nose is cola. Palate is chocolate coffee and toasted malt. Not as sweet and oily as I would expect but very drinkable.

22oz bottle pours a hazy, translucent deep brown with some creamy, slightly off white head. Nose has some clear milk chocolate, some toast, some malt, a little caramel, some cracker. Flavor follows along, sweet malt, some bread crust, milk chocolate, a little cookie, caramel, toast, a little green bell pepper too. Mostly clean finish. Fine, but unremarkable.

Horrifying is really the only honest description I can muster for this alleged beer. All sherry, cardboard and cider. Both the brewer and store should be embarrassed this is still on the shelf.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the 650 ml. bottle. It is a nice looking pour with a dark brown color building up to a modest little tan head the fads to a ring. But then this takes an entirely sour turn in my opinion. Cherry and champagne tartness on the nose with only a muted note of chocolate. Thin body. The cherry and tart character really supersedes anything remotely resembling chocolate in the flavor. Tastes more like a Sour than a chocolate malt. Sour fans would like it. Stout fans...not so much.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours near black with a thin beige head. Lightly roasted malts, semi-sweet chocolate, and lighter fruity notes. Rich, but a bit thin on the palate. Not bad.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
22oz bomber from Scott. Poured a little bit on the thin side, far dark brownish black body with a small foamy dark beige head. Aroma of light old chocolate, medium done toast, a touch of sour milk and some green leafy veggies. Body is very full and creamy with average carbonation and a quicker fading aftertaste. Flavor is chocolate malts, toast, coccoa powder, toast and a touch of milk. Meh, not impressed.

Pours dark brown with a thin off white head. Smells of chocolate, some breaddy undertones. Tastes of chocolate, some peppery hints, earthy with a velvety finish. Good drinking winter beer.
