3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours very dark brown with minimal tan head and okay lacing. Smells of malts, molasses, and chocolate. Tastes of roasted malt, barley, molasses, black licorice, and some bitter chocolate. I was expecting better based on the ratings here.

Draft. Deep brown/black body. Frothy, beige head, mostly diminishing. Aroma of roasted malts, molasses, chocolate. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Nice aroma, but the beer doesn’t deliver in the flavor. Ashy, slightly metallic. The bitterness and burnt notes get in the way of the malts. Average.

Pours a solid black with a thin brown head and lacing. It has a nice roasted malt aroma along with some coffee and chocolate. The flavor is slightly smokey and toasted barley and malt up front, a semisweet aftertaste, and a smooth texture.

Can poured into glass. Gotta love stouts out of cans. This has a nice roasty flavor with a slight bitter chocolate after taste. Aroma is mostly charred malts and chocolate. Very tasty and worth trying.

Can. Nice two fingers of frothy sticky dark tan head on a nearly black body. Dak chocolate, minerals, some oat and espresso. Flavor very much follows the aroma with dark bitter chocolate, espresso, minerally dark finish. Medium fluffy and slightly creamy body. Nice brew

Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike!
The beer appears a near black shade in the body, with a dark brown hue near the crest. The beige head is a finger thick, and leaves a good trail of lacing on the glass. The aroma is quite roasty, with scents of chocolate in there as well. Very pleasant tasting, with a good balance of roast and chocolate flavors. Medium bodied and smooth, this beer has a nice feel on the palate. Very drinkable, I would certainly have this again.
