3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Weird lactic sourness to this one that really screwed it up. Medium/light body with some decent roastiness. Appearance was what you’d expect, dark brown with a good sized head. Will need to try this one again.

Bottled. A deep red beer with dark brown head. The aroma chocolade, roasted malt, and oatmeal. The flavor is sweet with notes roasted malt, oatmeal, and a bit of wood, leading to a dry roasted finish.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz bottle courtesy of riversideAK extra. Thanks! Pours a pretty dark pour, black with brownish red edges, not opaque, but still fairly dark. Small light brown head, lighter than chocolate milk, dies to a film that laces ok. Aromas are a nice sweet stout base, roasted malts, creamy chocolate, coffee, oatmeal sweetness, caramel, a touch bitterness it almost smells like. Interesting, full enough and good. Initial is thin, a bit harsh in the bitterness, almost a touch astringent, moving into a light roast, coffee, a touch of chocolate, caramel, and vanilla. This is very underbodied, a bit harsh, a little watery in the finish. Largely dissappointing, in flavors, body, and even a touch in appearance. Surprisingly it smells pretty good. Subpar.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
22 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with bitbucket. Pours very dark brown, just about black, with a moderate creamy tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left a few small patches of lace. Very pleasant aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, prunes, and dates. Unfortunately, the flavor is a huge let-down. It begins with roasted malt, coffee and chocolate, but is followed by a strong tobacco flavor and an odd tangy sour flavor. The sourness and tanginess was in sharp contrast to the creamy smooth mouthfeel I was expecting. I actually ended up not finishing this one. Very disappointing, especially after the promising start.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not a traditional cream stout. Heavier than comparable cream or coffee stouts, but also slightly tart. Almost like a combination of a spruce ale and stout.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown almost black pour with tan head and lace. Dark chocolate and medium coffee. Dark chocolate bitter with burnt coffee and a light sour finish. A bit thin and foamy for my tastes. Not bad but not special.

Something was off about this beer, though I’m not 100% sure what it was. A medium level of oat and chocolate flavors but with a weak feel overall. One of the least good stouts I’ve ever had.

Thanks to decaturstevo for sharing this one.
Pours black with a tan head.
Roasty aroma that follows in the flavor producing a typical roasty stout bitterness.
