4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep dark chocolate brown with dark mahogany highlights. Tan head with good retention and lacing.
Coffee, chocolate, sweet cream (malted milk), nut.
Soft chocolate and coffee notes that are slightly bitter give way to a creamy mouth feel with burnt malt nutty flavors. This is followed by a sharp sting from carbonation leading to bitter herbal notes keeping the mouth lively. The mouth feel is wonderful. This a delicious cream stout with a nice sweetness balanced out by bitter notes making it more savory than sweet - excellent.

Pours a dark brown with red around the edges. Khaki head. Aromas of chocolate and malt sweetness. Taste of chocolate toffee and a little smokiness. Thin mouth feel but very nice beer.

Such a perfect balance for a session able 4.9% stout. Very aromatic with roasted malt, coffee, chocolate. Slight bitterness in back to round out a smooth creamy mouthfeel and taste.

Cor negra de espuma marrom persistente e cremosa.
Aroma suave, um pouco citrico e café.
Cremoso e pouco seco na boca, alcool levemente perceptível e sabor de malte, refrescante e com ótimo drinkability.

APPEARANCE – perfect midnight color. Creamy stout head color.
NOSE - easy coffee notes, just a touch of sweetness.
FLAVOR – this is where this beer disappoints! Surprisingly untasty.
NOTES – great beer right up to the first sip.

Pretty good imitation of Guinness. Not enough carbonation, though, and missing the slight sweetness that makes Guinness great.

12 ounce bottle. Pours dark brown with a nice tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and caramel. Taste is caramel malt, chocolate, coffee, and some lactose. Somewhat thin. Still, very well made and tasty.

Was hesitant for the darkness, but went for it anyway and was very glad that I did! Likes the color, great chocolaty taste, and love the smell. Nice feeling to my palate as well. Loving this beer!
