3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Opaque brown/black with a solid two-finger head, and a curtain of lace. Taste is mild toasted caramel malt with a hint of coffee and cream. Finish reveals a hint of hop bittering. Taste is a little watery, in a good way, similar to Murphy’s Stout. Easy to drink and satisfying. Recommended.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an inky black with almost no head. When held up to the light, it looks pretty thin. Aromas of a pretty solid roast with some bitter chocolate. Pretty nice aroma, actually. Taste is some heavy roast, some marshmallow, perhaps a bit of coffee. Thn mouthfeel detracts from this one. Pretty good overall.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
It had a nice creamy tan head that left a thin lacing behind. It had a dark brown body. It had a generous roasted malt aroma that rose from the oats and barley flavoring. There were some dark fruits on it. I noticed a roasted perhaps burnt malt in the flavor with a touch of espresso. The palate was medium and it had a dry finish. Overall, this was a good American Stout that I would have again.
