Light but right, surprisingly silky for a rich dark stout. Smooth on the tongue, tasty in the aftermath.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle from HOrrocks in GR. Inky black brew with frothy tan head that leaves sticky lacking all over the inside of the glass. Great aroma of burnt grains, roasted grain, coffee... Taste is burnt grain at the start, a little sweet but quickly transitioning to dry coffee / chocolate taste. Bittering appears at the very end. Palate strikes a perfect balance between satisfying but not cloying. Overall an excellent brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice black with a thin, quick-fading darker tan head, and no lacing. The aroma is coffee and roast, not over bearing and what I'm looking for in a normal stout. There are hints of chocolate. The taste is roast heavy on the front end, that fades into the coffee and eventually into a dry chocolate finish. It's a little drier than I'd like, and leaves an aftertaste that would rival most dry cigars

Have you ever read a review that dogged a movie that you liked and you thought to yourself "what the hell was that person talking about"? Well that has happened to me with this beer. This beer should have a higher rating. This thing is unbelievably good. Open your book to the Table of Contents and look under MUST TRY’s , because it’s there.

Blerch I dont dig this. Burnt rubber, thin and watery. Not very good in the least. If Im drinking a lower abv stout I want something smooth and easy to drink and this wasnt it.

Good rich stouty stout, I like it. Big flavors but thinish, I’ll take it. An off flavor atthe end, like tires

Bottle to pint, pours black with a tall foamy dark brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate. Taste is good, bittersweet chocolate and coffee. Overall a pretty decent stout.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured out of 12 oz bottle. Very dark beer with a thick brown head. I love the smell of this beer, it is mocha, chocolate and malty goodness. Very well balanced beer with a bitter sweetness and hints of roasted chocolate and a dry subtle hop flavor in the finish. Excellent stout.
