3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark thick black with no head. Smells like sweet cream with some roasted nuts. Flavor is of cream and malt...a bit too sweet for my tastes. Palate is nice a creamy. Overall an okay session sweet stout.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. 3rd week of Dec.<P>Beer is very dark, nearly opaque brown. Head is moderate, light tan, frothy, quickly and mostly diminishing.<P>The aroma is malty with moderate notes of chocolate milk, light note of roasted grain, cookie; Hoppy with a trace of resinous herb; Yeasty with a light/moderate note of basement, light piquant note of dough.<P>The flavor is moderately/heavily sweet, moderately acidic (reminiscent of cola), trace bitter with a long, lightly astringent, moderately sweet, lightly acidic finish. Blechy dank aftertaste. <P>The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is almost fizzy.<P>Very sweet. Between the sweetness, the acidity and the carbonation I’m very much reminded of cola. Find the yeast note kind of stinky and off-putting.

Bottled. Dark brown pour with a big brown/grey head. Aroma is sour milk, milk chocolate and a little alcohol. Flavour is more chocolate, a little coffee and a little smoke. Thin mouthfeel and simple palate though. Enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep black stout with ruby ridges. Small tan head does not linger much but decent lacing. Aroma of burnt carmel and roasted nuts. Somewhat creamy as it is a milk stout. I guess I like them more dry but it is try to style. Flavor is sweet and roasted biscuit. A little thin on the palate.

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.

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.
