3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark brown almost black with off white head, fizzy carbonation. Aroma has notes of roast, some crystal malt, touch of chocolate. Taste is a bit thin, but has notes of chocolate, dark fruit, caramel, before finishing roasted. Not bad, a bit watery and thin, but overall decent flavors.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of milk and hazelnut. Medium body, roasted coffee and malts up front, but takes a weird left turn in the middle of the tongue... soemthing like a cut lawn... or a bad cucumber... an odd vegetables/grass flavor which kills any points it was going to earn. The finish has a warming scotch quality along with a creamy texture.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured black with a little dark brown around the edges. Small tan head that receded rather quickly. Aroma was full of roasty chocolate and coffee malts. Dry and bitter when it first hit the palate. That was followed by the same roasty flavors from the aroma. Dry coffee finish. Medium-bodied, but seemed to have a cola-like consistency. Not exceptional, but worth a shot.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a rich oily opaque with a thin tan head. Aroma is lightly caramely sweet and very roasty with hints of dark fruit complexity. Body starts robust and silky with a nice malty sweetness before a bittersweet, mildly dry, roasted finish. Very nice for a regular stout. A little more malt and this could be imperial.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle courtesy of my Secret Santa. Pours a dark, dark brown color with a large tan head that patiently fades into a creamy crown. The aroma is roasted malt and mediumsweet dark chocolate. The flavor is also heavy on the roasted malt and dark chocolate. Additionally, a significant shot of coffee slips in at the end. Medium to full bodied and creamy smooth drinking brew. This is a solid stout indeed.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to pint (from notes). Looks solid; pretty heady for a stout though. Pitch black. Smells decent; malty. Tastes good. The lactose serves it well. Nice and smooth. Mouthfeel is decent, but very carbonated. Overall, a decent beer that I’d definitely have again.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
#29 of my Stouts of November: Opaque with frothy tan head and some lace. Aroma hints of roasted malt, nutty, molasses, mocha, coffee, raspberry, aromatic hops and minor phenols. The taste starts mocha sweet and has undertones of coffee and smoke. A nice bitterness and acidity is on the finish. It is full-bodied but it’s not at all overbearing. A very solid stout with some nice complexities. Recommended.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (12oz). via trade with Ughsmash. Poured dark opaque bubbly brown with a decent fizzy brown head. Roasty aroma - fruity malt, cola sweetness, nut oils, wet leaves - not bad. Taste is surprisingly bitter - cola/fruit dark roast malt, some chocolate and mild mocha, hops - but the finish is still a little cola-sweet. Mouthfeel is decently carbonated, bitter, slightly watery - like a lot of stouts, needs more body, and a little sweet, but decently roasty.
