3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark and oily. Head non existent. Faint aroma. Alcohol and carbonation of the bat gives way to a decent stout flavor, but lacks the smooth mouthfeel that a sweet stout should deliver.

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.

Great overall stout, poured a perfect tan head, robust toasted flavor with a clean finish. Can drink over and over again.

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.

[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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

12oz bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Black pour, zero visibility with one finger thick creamy fully lasting light khaki head. Malt, underlying mild hops, coffee and cocoa bean aromas. Milk chocolate taste up front with a light malt and chocolate finish. Flat carbonation, creamy texture on palate.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
An underwhelming beer. So much promise, so little delivery. Pours jet black with thick head and lacing. The aromas are lacking--hints of earthy, roasted malts, little else. Very light bodied, slightly creamy. Hints of coffee. An okay beer, nothing special.
