3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured this one into a Samuel Adams "Perfect Pint" glass. This is one Iíve wanted to have for a good while now. The aroma is of sweetness with chocolates and coffee. The taste when itís cold is bittersweet chocolate and subtle bits of coffee. As it warms up, roasty flavors become much more prominent. The look is pitch black with no light getting through... a creamy cinnamon head fluffs on top as well. Lacing is decent, but patchy. Mouthfeel is smooth but not too thick, making this 4.9% beer nicely drinkable. Overall, a very respectable beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark body, medium to small creamy head. Aroma has sweet roast and something creamy indeed. Medium body, good carbonation. Sweet medium roasty taste with creamy notes and some light milk chocolate. Sweet finish with some coffee notes. A decent stout, everything is nicely done but itís a bit generic - nothing really stands out to give this beer a memorable character.
