3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours pitch black with a decent tan head. Has a chocolate aroma, with a very burnt impression. Lighter altogether. Taste is heavy in chocolate, and is extremely sweet. While good, it seems to lacking in anything further than this. Considering that this is more on the stronger side, it is very smooth. Despite this, the fact that it is as sweet as it is makes it not as easy to drink. Not really carbonated, and quite oily upon drinking. There are better stouts out there.

Bottle: The aroma consists of cocoa, bitter dark chocolate, roast malt, some burnt notes, coffee, and a hint of vanilla. it pours a dark brown with no transparency and a one finger beige head that quickly fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with milk chocolate, cocoa, and a hint of vanilla. The finish has some light notes of dark chocolate, roast, and coffee. It’s medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Overall, I remember this hitting my radar and assuming it would be a 22oz bottle that hopefully I would buy every now and then. I only bought a single, but I really like that this comes in 6-packs. As a stout fan, I can see myself drinking a good amount of this.

Bottle from Half Time. Pours black with a creamy tan head. Aromas of "milk" and chocolate with smooth burnt malt. Near full bodied. Lactose it is, with chocolate and smooth burnt malt. Finishes towards dry, but the sugar puts on the brakes. It tastes very nice.
