3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz can to pint (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a fairly opaque dark cola with beige head that dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt and chocolate with a sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells, only better and with more chocolate. Nice and smooth on the palate. Enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark beer out of the can with a short lived foamy tan head. Big chocolaty with some dusty grains. Molasses sweetness with chocolate, vanilla, lactose, roasted grains and a bitter coffee bean finish. This is pretty tasty and even better as it comes out of a can.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a can. I don't know how old it is. Black pour with no head. Muted aroma of roasted malt and some chocolate. Thin mouthfeel, watery. No real taste to speak of up front. Slight "stouty" after taste. This beer was not very good. Maybe, I had an old can and it did not hold up because of the low ABV.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from a 16 oz can. Deep black brew - held up to a light you can see that it is clear. Tan head that soon fades. Low carbonation. Aroma of sweet roasted malt, a little chocolate, Taste is sweet with roasted grain and hints of chocolate. Clean finsih with a little bitter and the burnt grain flavor coming forward. Rather thin palate that works in this case. Very good!
