3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma- sugar, milk, some malt characteristics, slight hops
Appearance- dark brown, borderline black, crescent white head, some carbonation
Taste- super milky, very sugary, some caramel
Palate- relatively thin, decent carbonation
Overall- Not worth the $4 I paid for it. Milky, overly sugary, not very flavorful, just mostly average.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark as night with a tiny head. Aroma is dark roasted malt. Not as thick in body as it looks, but not much carbonation either. Very tasty with lots of dark malt and a touch of sour. Bitterness is kept well in check as is the sweetness. I really liked this a lot.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 12.19.11. Pours very dark crimson, almost opaque, with a small light brown head. Aromas of sweet milky caramel, roasty cocoa, and some sour coffee. The flavor is smoky malt, honey-glazed ham, and some bacon, with light alcohol and bitter cocoa in the finish. Low carbonation and nearly creamy, with a dry finish. Good; I get some "meaty" notes in here.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Pinocchio’s. Dark as night pour, no head. Aroma and flavor was predominantly roasty with a solid chocolate finish. Not a whole lot of milkiness, which is good, honestly. Not as sweet as a typical ST big stout. I was digging the super roastiness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark black pour, a little carbonation and a slightly sweet chocolate aroma. Flavor is roasted chocolate malt, lactose sweetness, very light smoke and finished with just enough body to prevent it from being too thin. Very good!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle from Pick’s poured into an English Pint. Pours black with a half finger of tan head. Aroma of sweet chocolate, caramel and a tiny hint of coffee. Taste is light bitter. Dark chocolate, coffee and caramel. Full bodied with a thick texture. Lively carbonation and a long bitter finish. Overall, great beer for springtime when it’s getting warmer outside but still kinda cold. I could drink this outside.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint on tap at Kickbacks, Jacksonville. Good looking black beer with a small tan head. Roasty, malty aroma. Flavor was good, semi-sweet dark malts, coffee, and chocolates. I had just finished a Smuttynose Baltic Porter, so this didn’t taste so sweet in comparison. An enjoyable stout in any case, very easy drinking and tasty.

3.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bought this at Whole Foods in the DC area. Paid $2.25 for a single bottle. Poured at 45 Degrees F into a Dogfish Head Signature glass
A - Poured just like a stout should but with a slight tan and translucent view through the pour. The head was nearly 2 fingers on my vigorous pour producing a very milky / creamy head that is brown matching the beer itself. Overall, a gorgeous looking stout.
S - Cream, espresso beans, chocolate. There are some toasted nuts in this with some big resin scents. There’s another dominent smell that I can’t quite figure out. It’s a malty smell but not a pleasant one.
T - More nuts and resin on the tongue. There’s a lot of espresso and creamy tones but a very putrid aftertaste.It’s bitter, not very creamy, not very sweet and just like drinking a malty coffee. Malted coffee with resin and a displeasing astringency. I bought this about 2 weeks ago and can’t locate a date on the bottle but it’s like this brand new beer has fallen off.
M - Lots of creamy bubbles floating around
O - I want to love this beer! Everything was great until I tasted it. The first taste is great but after that, it’s all down hill. I hope others have better experiences with this one.
