3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is an inviting combination of roasted coffee & chocolate. It pours a thick black with virtually no head. A definite coffee taste with a subtle caramel hints. The palate does leave a slight alcoholic residue. Overall very impressive!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2013 Had this on tap. The head had a nice tan appearance. Dry and barely sweet in flavor. The notes of chocolate and nutty taste was decent. The body was not as full as I would have liked and it was kinda watery. Overall I liked it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ Greg’s picked up in the Midwest. Pours a black appearance with a thin light brown head. Coffee, earthy, vanilla, a touch smoky aroma. Mild anise, a bit nutty, caramel, dark chocolate flavor. Not bad.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The appearance of this beer fuses a black color with a small and rapidly fading tan head, and the aroma fills your nose so nicely with its strong currents of vanilla, chocolate, and roasted and caramel malts. The taste mildly umami, mildly sweet, and slightly sour, and the palate combines a full body, thin texture, long finish, and a soft carbonation, which is very drinkable and pleasant medley on the tongue.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle into pint glass. Pours opaque brown/black with good light-brown head. Head all but diminishes; laces ok. Nice toasted malty smell with hints of caramel and dark chocolate. Flavor carries through but not as strong as it smells. Not very sweet flavor - has a bit of a burnt charcoal flavor. Finishes slightly bitter and acidic. Body is watery for such a dark brew with light carbonation and slight alcoholic feel. It’s good, but there are much better stouts out there.

Bottle. Pours a black color with tan head. Roasty sweet, charcoal aromas. Dry, roasty flavors. Light bodied for a stout. Alright.

This stout pours black with a quickly-dissolving head. It has a great roasted flavor, with, for me, just the right balance between sweet and bitter. But it’s way too thin. I want that same balance, but with more sweetness and more bitterness and a rounder mouthfeel..

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours an opaque almost black with a finger of head and ok lacing. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Semi-sweet dark chocolate and roasty notes with appropriate bitterness. Crisp and thin mouthfeel. Too much so for the style. Average stout, had much better.
