3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nearly opaque balck with a glimpse of garmet on the edges. Dark heavy head of tan bubbles. Sweet roasted malt, light chocolate and hint of vegetable. Sweet dark chocolate start that turns to a bitter acidic amelgomation of goo. The hops flavors are to sweet and don't seem to meld well with the dark malts.

Quite good. Better be for $10.99 a sixer! A little hard to find. I'll buy it again though, if I can find it. Excellent representation of what a stout should taste like.

This brew poured a small head os finely sized mostly diminishing brown colored bubbles that left behind a opaque dark black uncarbonated body. It had a strong coffee malt aroma with a very smooth mouthfeel and a strong coffee flavor.

Thanks Captaincouger(Tom) for this brew. Very dark brown with a moderate brown head. A lot of roast flavors here. Coffee, toffee, etc. It is well balanced. Even balanced on the finish.

Another great big coffee-like stout. Initial flavor is wonderfully intense, but seems to mellow as it is drunk. A rather thin palate for the amount of flavor.

dark dark but not completely black, gets point for a nice dark foam. Ended up inhaling some trying the get the aroma. We'll file that under too much carbonation. Roast malt flavor with a slight coffee flavor. I like the flavor but i think the carbonation brings it down compaired to most stouts

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rich roasted nose of chocolate, medicine, caramel, oats, and flowers. The brew pours a dirty motor oil black. The solid brown creamy head is fully lasting with good lacing. The bittersweet chocolaty flavor is excellent with a light acidity and a long bitter full finish. The chewy body is syrupy and soft, the finish feels clean. Outstanding.
