4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A much better beer than its average rating on this site would suggest. There’s no accounting for tastes, I suppose.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear black, slightly brownish around the edges, with a thin light khaki head. Delightful nose of chocolate, coffee, creaminess, and subtle roastiness. Flavor is equally incredible with creamy chocolatiness, a keen coffee tone, a slight bit of molasses and roastiness. Sweet and creamy but a little roasty and very full and well rounded.

Wow... aroma is exactly like Mexican Chocolate. Amazing... Dark brown in color with clean roasted malt flavor bordering on coffee & cream. Overall, this is an extreme pleasure to drink.

This is slightly atypical of a stout in several ways. The carbonation is a bit higher than I would expect and the body is lighter. The beer is not opaque, not even close. Overall, it seems like a delightful porter. The mouthfeel has a touch of chalkiness which I really like. There is a hint of mint and herbaceous character that adds complexity in an appealing way. I dinged the rating a bit because of the odd approach but I really like this beer.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2009 This yours brew even better than last years. Pours relatively light for a stout, with less aroma than you would expect, but delivers great flavor. Strong malty flavor from start to finish with a great mouthfeel and finish. I wonder if this beer would do better marketed as a porter, however.

Bottle pour, red-brown in color, high clarity, thin head dissipates quickly. Very inviting aromas of dark, chocolatey roasted malts, and some sweet cherries or plums. Nice, smooth and soft mouthfeel. Taste is very satisfying, smooth but with standout flavors and mild carbonation. Malts are roasted perfectly, very heady, nice match of chocolates and toffee.
This is my favorite so far in this style of brew. Of course, being from Houston, I am very glad to see this brew from a local brewer.

Dark brown color with a thin fast diminshing tan head and a bit of lacing down the sides of the glass. Very stong coffee aroma with hints of chocolate. Nice coffee taste, carmels, and chocolate. I really enjoyed this one.

A very solid brew right outta Houston,TEXAS ; It is a dark almost black hue that smells delish, and the taste is hard to pinpoint but is damn good,
