3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 1, 2009 Draught at the brewery. Has a proper dry stout appearance, with a deep black body and a really nice looking creamy tan colored head. Creamy soft texture, up front, then some dry malts are more prominent, then the light toasted bitter hops show up. Finish has some nice dark chocolate flavors, with a resemblance to ice cream even, like cookies and cream ice cream, actually. Overall this is a very nice dry stout, one of the best examples of the style I’ve had in years. Creamy and rich all around, and full of flavor... delicious.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the ’skellar - Poured very dark with a thick tan head. Had a sweet, malty, coffe aroma. I’m not sure if the lines were tainted, but this had a slight cherry cough syrup flavor that was hard to get past. Nitrogen made it very creamy.Higher ratings woithout the syrup flavor.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at brewpub. Poured a dark brown, almost black with a nice creamy one finger nitrogenated (is that a word?) head. Light aroma of roasted malts and slight hints of coffee. Flavor is fairly thin as well, but appropriate to the style. Some roasted malt and to a lesser extent burnt black patent malt. Finish is dry and lightly bitter. Mouthfeel is thin and somewhat watery as expected. Overall, a good example of a less than exciting style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a light black with a nice light brown head and good retention. Roasted coffee, chocolate, light licorice hints, and some other dark roasted malts. Light flavor overall, but some decent coffee, roasted grains, chocolate and light caramel hints. Body is a little on the weak side, but the finish is pretty smooth.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is like a foamy desert drink. Espresso, and what I can only describe as a negative (or inverted) chocolate taste. I am not quite sure how to describe that, but I like it. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours very black, with a great off-white nitrogenated head. Aroma of coffee, malt, and chocolate. Tastes very malty, with a slightly dry, crisp finish. This one beats Guinness in my mind.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
A light smoky/roasted nose and a bit of a tang. Dark brown-black with beautiful light-brown creamy head that was still there when I finished. Smooth carb, medium-heavy silky body. Hints of smoke, malted chocolate, and coffee bitterness. Light sour finish. Starts a bit sweet with dry mellow after. Not hugely complex but a very nice dry stout.
