3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Black with brown head. Aroma and flavor-wise it is quite discrete (coffee, chocolate). Well-balanced with slightly bitter finish. Full, creamy (yes :-)) almost chew-able. Very pleasent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
aromas of dark roasted malt, coffee, malty sweetness, plum and chocolate. black color with a tan head. dark chocolate and roast malt flavors with a smokey flavor. roast malt bitterness. chewy flavors like burnt chocolate cookies vanishing into a dryness with lingering roasted flavors. much more like a homebrewed stout than the more mass produced stouts.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
creamy chocolaty taste, great smell, very nice poor thick rich head. I enjoyed this stout, not to bitter in the taste.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Not my kind of stout. Well, dark and a medium and soft head. But the smell is bad. Something like a bad sewer. Flavor is like burnt bread, toasted to much. Not nice! I did get it down though, glad that I didn’t buy more than one bottle, and it’s going to bee the last!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black body with a ring of tan foam on top. Milk chocolate aroma with a touch of pear. The flavor starts with a dry graininess and continues with a latte sweetened with apple and chocolate. I detect some of the hops in the finish - sort of a sweet dandelion flavor. I think I would like this beer more if it had a more robust mouthfeel, but it’s good as it is.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Aroma is of dark chocolate and coffee. Pours a very dark brown almost black with a nice tan head with good retention. Flavor is all coffee with a burnt/bitter finish. Bitter and coffee aftertaste that is long lasting. Creamy mouthfeel, but no creamy taste. I'm not a huge stout fan and I prefer a little more sweetness in the flavor.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful bottle. Pours an opaque black with a creamy brown head. Aroma of bittersweet chocolate and malt. Flavor is much the same, smooth with a touch of dark roast coffee and malt. Very nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours pitch black with a thin brown head. Sweet chocolate malt aroma. Light carbonation. Sweet on the tongue. More chocolate and coffee notes. Semi-full mouthfeel. A nice beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep dark, motor oil-like pour and the quaint medicine bottle give this a five for appearance. Delectable aroma of bittersweet chocolate and roasted day old coffee. Creamy mouthfeel, coats your mouth with flavor. Flavor of bittersweet chocolate, coffee, licorice, and some roasted malty notes to top it off. Finishes as strong as it starts, leaves your belly full and satisfied. All in all, a damn good stout.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
An opaque black brew with a medium tan head. Aroma is sweet chocolate, coffee, and toastiness. At first, I though this a sweet brew, with little bitterness. The more I drank, the more the bitterness became apparent. The silky feel complements the roasted malt and chocolate flavors. A dry, somewhat smoky finish. I would qualify this one as a "tweener" - not quite a sweet stout, but note quite a dry either. Cool bottle, nice lacing.
