4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It poured a beautiful dark brown leaving a spectacular spider-web spotty foamy lacing gracing the sides of the pint glass. A semi half-inch white head appeared and lasted for about a half minute before dieing into the body. The smell had the chocolate up front, almost somewhat of a chocolate cake, there’s a slight bready/cakey smell in there. The taste had the chocolate and a bit of of a smokey coffee taste backing that up. The palate was about a medium to almost heavy with nothing harsh on the tongue. Overall, I like this one. I would come back to this, very good.

Poured into sniffer. Color leans towards dark brown with light white head. Not picking up on any aroma. Taste is standard coffe and chocolate stout. Some bitterness in aftertaste. Solid but nothing stands out.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
Very minerally, like blood. Not chocolatey or smooth. Maybe a bad batch, but the whole six-pack was that way. My wife loves any kind of stout, but would not drink more than one sip of it. I blended it with other stouts, and that worked pretty well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Nitro Tap] Pours an inky black color. Aroma of chocolate malts. Tastes of sweet lactose, roasted barley and charred wood. Smooth and lighter than expected body (Probably due to the nitro more than anything.) Tasting notes from 1/2014.

Chocolaty & creamy with an almost velvety texture. Powerful & full bodied but with a well hidden ABV.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Glossy black with sinking grey-tan collar. Aroma of rust, blackened grain, rye bread and carob. Simplistic burnt profile; paper and wood with hints of deeply bitter high cocoa chocolate, yeast extract on charred toast, maybe pepper. Slippery mouthfeel. Mentholyptus cough sweet with a slug of cold water bitterness. Alcohol pronounced and warming. Unimpressive.
