ben4321 (4540) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 29, 2011
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 8/29/11

Aroma: The nose is bittersweet chocolate, some dry/roasty malts, and some oatiness
Appearance: It pours a dark balckish color with a small beige head and light lace
Flavor: The taste is malty, not particularly sweet, more roasty, with a mild bitterness too
Palate: The body is rather light for the style, a touch watery, smooth and soft, decently drinkable
Overall Impression: This is an OK stout overall, but not one that is going to blow anyone away. A nice light bodied beer that doesnít run into the common issue of being overly sweet. I can certainly see the appeal, it isnít bad, but I donít have high praise for it either. Itís just fine.

A very nice stout, but too much coffee for my taste. Needs some more chocolate, maybe a touch of oatmeal and some fruitiness.

Pours a black color with a caramel colored head. Aroma of roast, caramel, nuttiness and earthiness. Light sweet taste with some notes of nut and caramel. A decent session brew.

Bottle: very very dark reddish brown in the light, but black when I just look at it. Itís aromas are that of a malty chocolate, lots of sweetness coming through, and licorice. It has a nice tan head that sticks around. Itís not as roasty or chocolaty as I expected by itís aroma and appearance. Itís just a nicely balanced sweetish stout, I actually really like it. It has a nice lively, carbonation that rounds it out as a great, drinkable, tasty beer.

Bottle to snifter. Pour is clear dark brown which appears black once in glass and leaves a soapy kahki head that dissipates to a collar. Aroma is bitter burnt malt and has some faint coffee notes as well. Taste is pretty nice starts bitter burnt roasted malt that leads into a little bit of chocolate and coffee. Palate is thin and gritty with a bitter dry finish. Not bad stout. I enjoyed this one a lot more than there IPA.

A new stout at my shop rite, what a plesant surprise! This is infinitely better (and better then infinium) then the Poland spring coupon that will print out when i pick up the next case of water. /Rant. Bottle. Pours a dark bruin body with a tan head. Malty up front. Nice chocolate malt tones, hints of drier malt characters, roasted coffee and some light oats. Soft body light bitter roast with a light malty sweetness. Pretty dull overall sure it has some flavor but nothing really showcased. Still to me, it gets good marks as an easy drinking stout.
