2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Another disappointing stout. Been drinking imperials lately so maybe I just don’t remember what a normal stout should taste like...but I’m pretty sure it’s not quite like this.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark almost black color, small head, nice lacing. Strong aroma of chocolate and vanilla with some coffee, caramel and cinnamon notes. Quite low in carbonation, thick body. Taste is somewhat bitter, sweet and sour, which is not very "stouty". Bitter finish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared at the Foothills Sexual Chocolate pre-release party. Pours light brown. Slight bubble gum sweetness and roasted nut notes. Surprisingly weak on the chocolate and coffee notes. Very little stout going on here. The sugary sweetness doesn’t go with whatever else is going on here.

Bottle. To much of a tart sour flavor. Just not to my liking. Not terrible but not that good either.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at beer study. Nose is sour malt—I finally figured out what this reminds me of—yogurt. Similar flavor. Light nutty, oat finish. Solid.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
It has a decent aroma that is a mixture of coffee and roasty malts. It is a deep brown with a medium bodied, medium brown head. It has a coffee flavor with a hit of oatmeal. it is not as strong as other stouts which makes the overall flavor a bit weaker than others. Overall it’s a decent brew.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clean and dark brown with light edges and one finger of dark tan head that quickly dissipates. Nose shows some dark fruit and diacetyl with a caramelly sweetness. Flavor feels like it falls short of a stout. Get lots of fruity notes with some malty notes and burnt sugar. Kind of a weird flavor
