2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from no idea where. Pour was pitch black, very small initial head, weak lacing, steady retention of a thin ring around the edges. The aroma was milky, chocolate. Flavor was chalky milk chocolate, very faint vinous notes with higher temperatures. Not sticky sweet, faint oxidation (in a not bad way, though), but a tad watery in the flavor department. Mouthfeel was moderate for th estyle, flat.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours nicely black with dark brown highlights. Fairly small, dark tan head fades quickly. Aromas of coffee and a dark caramel sweetness. Slight sharp bitterness of roasted barley hits before more dark coffee and finishes almost candy sweet. A little thinner on the palate than expected.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Courtesy my Secret Santa. A below average stout, but glad to have had it as I never heard of this brewer. Aroma was a little weak but could pick up hints of coffee and chocolate malt. Pour was a flat black with no head or bubbles. Taste was as the aroma suggested. Mostly chocolate malt with some coffee bitterness in the aftertaste. This beer could use some carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is a dry burnt scent. Color is a deep black with light carbonation and a thin tight head. Taste is roasted and sweet. Starting with a medium body it goes down with sweet feel that turns to a somewhat sharp and sweet roasted taste and ends dry with a faint bitterness. Overall its a nice stout, not great, its a bit sweet but its still a nice drinking brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz, bottled 3rd week of June. Opaque black with a small head that flits away. Aroma is charred wood and molasses with a metallic, acidic twang. Flavor is cocoa, sourish milk, smoky char, earthy metal, coffee. Palate is light, sorta smooth, but airy and watery. Fair flavors, but more body and head retention would do this beer wonders.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours dark amber black with small beige head. The aroma is on the sweet side with some coffee and roasted nuts, maybe almond, and some raisin. The flavor is cold coffee, light caramel, a little bit of brown sugar and breakfast cereal. The finish is slightly nutty. The mouthfeel is kind of strange- smooth but really thin. Ok.
