4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an opaque black with a small creamy light brown head. Nose is malt and molasses. Very creamy on the palate, the tast is of dark roasted malts, molasses, chocolate with a hint of hops on the end for a dry finish. A very good beer for all scholars or non-scholars alike. Pairs well with steak sandwiches.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a shaker from 12oz bottle. Nice head and lacing. Dark fruit flavors, chocolate and caramel. Nicely rounded and by far my favorite from south shore.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a better than average stout. Dark in character, rich and roasty. Nothing particularly distinctive, but everything on tack.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Among the few stouts I’ve encountered that has a taste and body weight sufficiently balanced enough to allow for multiple bottles in a single sitting. The chocolate malts dominate the aroma although there are hints of caramel. Sweet and semi-dry finish.

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.

Bottle at South Shore Brewery. Thick black pour almost no head. Malty chocolate subtle nose, good mouthfeel (very little carbonation) and a robust stout character. Smooth, chocolate malt with a nice balance of hops - just a touch sweet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2012 Opaque black body. Little head disapates quickly. Aroma dark fruits, brown sugar, dark chocolate. Creamy mouth feel. Taste subtle notes of dark fruits, dark chocolate,citrus,with a smokey roasted bitter finish. As it warms up to room temp chocolate more noticeable. Good brew

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by B3C. Poured a black color with an average to large frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt and chocolate aroma. Medium chocolate sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a good beer that met my expectations.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle - Pours mahogany with a thin tan head. Sweet vanilla dominates the nose, with light roast and a touch of milkiness. Taste is pretty limp. There’s the same vanilla note, but with ashy and burnt malt dominating. A little whiskey sweetness creeps into the finish. Overall it tastes really watery--the mouthfeel is way off. Pretty carbonated and nowhere near full-bodied. Was this bottle off?
