4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Oh man, what a craft! This stout is hands down in the top three stouts out there. Not for the rookie beer drinker, nor for those that prefer the lighter side of beer. However, even the ale drinker or the novice can appreciate this one. Rather pricey ($11.99 a 4 pack most places), but well worth it!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce can - $3.49 at Total Wine & More in Greenville, South Carolina.
Appearance: Dispensed a deep, black body with half an inch of mocha-toned foam.
Smell: Boldly chocolaty aromatics atop a blunted roasted character with touches of scorched heavy cream, candied caramels, molasses and a vein of dark fruitiness.
Taste: As with the aroma, very heavy and forward on the chocolate backed by a decided creaminess. Fairly sweet akin to melty ice cream. A little touch of dark fruitiness within. A roastiness is present but rather restrained. Warming alcohol. Lightly roasty, heavily chocolaty finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Charmingly smooth mouthfeel.
Overall: Terrifically wonderful.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate syrup, caramel, roasted nuts), with notes of vanilla, candy sugar, and marshmallow. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/soft carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
A very candyish example...lots of caramel and chocolate syrup, very little roast. Not unpleasant but definitely geared towards folks with a sweet tooth.
