3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big chocolate aroma with hints of light sweet cream and baked chocolate cake. Flat black with a teeny compressed mocha head that manages to almost look creamy despite being less than a pinky’s thickness. Light tasting smooth creamy fore. Some mild toast elements and muted chocolate/oatmeal notes. Feels creamier on the tongue than the low flavor concentration suggests to the tastebuds.

Clear dark brown with a light beige head. Aroma has some mild sweetness of chocolate, earthy oats, and some light lactose-sweetness. Flavor is much too light on the palate, but I can get some tones of light chocolaty sweetness, mild lactose notes and a subtle creaminess overall. A little too dry at the end

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted from a bomber purchased at Rock Bottom in Denver, Colorado. Dark red-black appearance with a weak, quickly disappearing head. Dark, chocolate malty aroma. Not all that creamy but you still get the dark malty with chocolate flavor that is quite well carbonated. Smooth but a little off for a Stout.
