3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled from Bier Genot, DOB 02/13/13, large sample, served in a shaker. Aroma of roasted malts, lactose, slight blackcurrant, dark fruit, bit coffee and chocolate. Medium sweet in taste, bit bitter from the roast. Bit watery palate actually. Creamy texture. Soft carbonation, low bodied. Decent stuff.

On tap at Brick and Barley, Grand Forks. Quite a nice stout. More on the dry side for a "sweet stout" though it was served very cold so that could affect things.Roasty with a touch of cocoa. Very nice.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Single from total wine. Milky smooth texture and sweet but it seems like it is somewhat of a contrived sweetness. The sugar just sort of hangs in here and doesn’t really add all that much. Faint stout and roasty malt flavors on the back of the palate. Ok but definitely could have a little more character.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Botella de 33 cl en el lúpulo en octubre de 2012. Stout con sabores y aromas suaves notandose los toques dulces y lácteos, junto con algo de especias. Cuerpo medio con 7.5 vol que se dejan notar bastante bien. Buena, para repetir de nuevo sin problemas.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. This is nearly perfect and quite enjoyable. Plenty of creamy goodness with nothing over-the-top to spoil things. Not to be missed.

Not a bad stout from Southern Tier! I love the complexity of this brew and how smooth the finish is....this has been their downfall to me in the past!

Bottle pour. Deep brown, almost black with beige head atop. Soft chocolate nose, with toasted malts and lactose sweetness. Medium body. Bitter chocolate, a little nuttiness, some espresso on taste. Drinks like a single. Alright.
