3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle pours a lightly viscous, opaque black with a spitty, clumpy, off white head. Nose of toasted malts, chocolate, multi grain bread, dried hay, nuts, a little coffee. Flavor is much lighter than the color or nose would let on; watered down malt, light brown sugar, watered down coffee, crackers, a little wheat. Medium bodied, dry finish. Smells pretty good, flavor is a bit too watery.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… Pours black with a small, creamy taupe head. The bouquet offers chocolate, mild mocha and light vanilla with a trace of cinnamon. Light to medium-bodied with stinging carbonation. The perfectly balanced flavor presents nuances of espresso and dark chocolate, but seems watered down. Finishes crisp, clean and a touch dry. Bottle courtesy of StFun!

12 ounce thanks to mikem409. Chocolate for sure. But with that wheat profile that keeps it from being a big time chocolate stout. Reminds me a bit of the Bells wheat beers from six or seven years ago.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with mikem409. Pours black with a thin-moderate brown head that lasted through the first two sips and leaves a complex network of lace. Pleasant aroma of roasted malt and some char. The flavor is roasted malt with some ash and a bit of tobacco. Mild bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours black with a medium mocha head. Aroma is lightly roasted...milky...just a bit of chocolate...earthy and wheaty. Flavor has some roastiness...a bit of black licorice...can’t find a hint of chocolate....and some sort of nasty flavor I can only describe as fishy!? Creamy medium mouthfeel and a fishy aftertaste. Horrible...pouring out...disappointing.
