Sweet and tasty. This is a nice stout that is surprisingly mild for a double.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque black/brown color, rocky, bubbly two-finger tan head, thick cobwebs of lace. Taste is strong caramel malt that has so much sweet toffee, that no other tastes have a chance. There is finally some bittering at the end, but it isn’t enough to balance. A big, noticeably alcoholic brew, but enjoyable in small amounts.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl.
Appearance - close to opaque black with a nice crema head.
Nose - initial dairy thing, then light cardboard note, then toffee follows it in.
Taste - initially slight oxidised cardboard again, then liquorice, nuts, praline generally.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a dry and fairly balanced finish.
Overall - this needs to be re-rated as the bottle was a little past its BBD.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Oily black body with a light-tan head that doesn’t last for long. Aroma of molasses, sweet brown sugar, faint coffee, creamy milk chocolate, toasty caramel. Flavor is sweet.. VERY sweet. Loads of sweet chocolate, milky lactose sweetness, brown sugar, caramel, toffee, even some hints of vanilla & toasted nuts. Loads of residual sugar coat your teeth instantly. Too much sweetness to drink a full glass. Not bad but goddamn.

pitch black color. Brownies soaked in bakers chocolate. Not sweet nose. Med full mouth, decent bakers chocolate and brownies mouths. Very dry. Lingering chocolatey finish. Fantastic.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a darker brown with a beige head of foam. No retention, really. The aroma has milky chocolate and anise. The taste is moderately bitter, with a milky sweetness to it. Chewy mouthfeel and low carbonation. Maybe a little past its prime.
