4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thank you secret santa AKA Frylock, 12 oz bottle: Pretty dark, almost black, with a lasting beige head. Chocolate, roasty, and caramel in even balance in the nose initially, with roasty getting the nod in the end. A bit chalky w/ an herbal hop as well as some sweet brown sugar and hints of perfumey alcohol. Well balanced, chocolatey, roasty, and toasted malty! Roasted bitterness in the finish with some herbal hop flavor and bitternes. Toffee, sweet brown sugar, and a bit of dark grain tartness from mid palate into the finish which is semi sweet and roasty, chocolate, w/a lasting aftertaste. Lower carbonation, smooth, and medium bodied. Damn! This is a fine stout and overall beer!!!! Slightly sweet up front, well balanced overall, and lightly semi sweet in the finish. This is a great beer for one taste or an entire evening. Well done!!!!!!

I think I got this bottle from Springslicker. Pour black with a full brown head. Aroma of cocoa and roasted malt. Lightly sweet flavor full of chocolate. Light roastiness. Full bodied. I thought this beer rocked and I have no clue how old it is. Highly recommended.

12 oz bottle thanks Sammy. Pitch black beer with a thin brown head. Sweet plummy aroma, roast, molasses and a touch of toast. Creamy texture. Flavour is sweet and slightly fruity, licorice and a touch of pine as well. Toast and faint vanilla along with moderate roastiness. A bit thin, but still good.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This beer is roasted deliciousness! Incredibly black pour with a fluffy caramel head. Roasted malts, bitter chocolate and toasted marshmallows on the nose. Nice bitterness comes out in the flavor with a lingering burnt malt flavor and hop presence. Similar to St Ambroise but without the velvet. Delicious!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black pour with a tan creamy mocha head. Aroma is a delicious mix of sweet chocolate and bitter coffee bitterness. Palate is smooth and easy to consume. Not a real impressor but a good solid stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
An opaque brown beer with a collapsing brown head. The aroma is sweet roasted combined with light notes of malt and chocolate. The flavor is sweet roasted combined with notes of chocolate, and with a dry slightly woody finish. Nice.
