2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours black with no head from the bottle. Aroma is an overpowering coffee and alcohol. Extreme carbonation in the mouth with notes licorice, dark chocolate and alcohol. This is a very weak attempt at a stout. It just does not taste good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
About as average as they come in terms of stout. Nothing terribly wrong here other than being a bit thin but nothing stands out either. Opaque pour w/ a quickly fading tan head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma has some nice chocolate notes that are a tad underwhelming. The taste is similar as the chocolate notes are there & some roasted notes are in the finish but there just isn’t enough to make this great. It easily drinkable at 6.5% however!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Coffee black pour with a small tan head. Aroma of smokey malt and light roasted coffee with a hint of sweet black licorice. Taste of same big smokey smooth slightly sweet malt with bakers chocolate and bright coffee under tones. Overall a well balance and complex stout that is made for easy sipping.
