On tap: Dark burgundy-brown color was nice; thinnish head. Creamy, lightish texture. Sweet and chewy malt flavors (caramel, milk chocolate, tar). Nice roast and toast. Hint of sourness was a pleasant touch. Good, easy-drinkiní stout.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I had this beer on tap at the Monte Carlo Brewpub in Las Vegas (served in a weizen glass). I found this beer to be quite boring in character.
The beer poured a not-quite-opaque red-black, with a fair amount of light tan head. There was no aroma. It was served rather cold, but exhibited only a faint amount of light roastiness. I found this beer to be disappointingly approachable. Mouthfeel is smooth but a bit flat and watery. Not a very exciting beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Monte Carlo Brewpub in Las Vegas. Pour was a nice ultra-dark brown with barely any red coming through. The head was off-white and creamy. Terrific rings of lacing. The aroma was roasted, smokey malt and a tiny bit of chocolate. The flavor tasted like someone through a smokebomb in my beer. Very, very smokey initially. The smoke gave way after a bit to some lightly roasted malt and chocolate. Slightly watery mouthfeel. A decent effort.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Aroma was mostly of roasted chocolate malt, but it was light. Creamy mouthfeel. Flavor was mostly of roasted chocolate, and like a chocolate version of guiness.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Aladdin(Planet Hollywood) location. Pours dark brown/black with a medium light brown head. Light aroma of mostly roasted malt some coffee. Taste is pretty straight forward roasted malts, not sweet. Finishes dry. Thin to medium body and nice and creamy. Not a "WOW" brew, but solid, plus I got to know the owner and he is solid guy as well.

If you are a competent and commited brewer, I figure itís hard to go wrong with a stout (just donít scrimp on the ingredients and youíll be okay). This is a fine example. Dark chestnut, thin brown head. Earthy aroma with coffee and roast, a little bitter chocolate maybe but not much sweetness. Medium bodied and smooth.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The brewer brought this in to our tasting, and being the first ale heís done in years I think he did quite well. Pretty roasty with chocolate and cofee aroma, but apparantly there isnít any chocolate malt in it, so thatís pretty roasty. A nice dry stout.
