3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample at Suds on the Shore festival. Dark Brown pour with a tan head. Sweetness in the aroma and taste with chocolate and coffee undertones. A very enjoyable sweet stout.

Great off white head. Heavy chocolate and caramel on the nose. A little bitter, followed by chocolate and sweetness. Lingering a little in mouth feel, but makes up for it in great taste. Let it warm up a bit before enjoying.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2014 Sweeter and frothier than most stouts. Flavors of sweet cream, toast and mild coffee with light caramel and moderate bitterness. A bit lighter than expected but easy to drink.

On tap. Very nice stout aroma. Chocolate comes through quite a bit. Taste is rather sweet. Palate is a little lighter than expected. Overall a nice stout but it lacks that oomph I was looking for.

Much better done that the Sac-relige - this one has body and is considerably smooth, with a sweetish edge to the roasty notes.

MiBGF 07: Nearly opaque with a nice creamy head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of bittersweet and milk chocolates, roasty malts, plum, smoke , lactic sourness and a bit yeasty. The taste has a nice creamy sweetness supported by mild acidity and lactic twang. The finish displays some coffee and hop bitterness. The mouth feel is creamy and smooth. This was a very solid brew and worth a try.

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.

Can. Pours dirty motor oil black with a reddish halo when held to to the light. Very small head but strong lacing. Aroma is not as strong as I would expect, faint sweetness and chocolate milk. Flavor is big and sweet molasses on the onset, followed by a very strong malt character of bitter chocolate and burnt toast. There are grassy hops in the finish. Rich and sweet, this. Would be excellent with a brownie or chocolate cake. Thanks, mikem409.
