4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance...BLACK!!! Sweet, coffeeish, malty aroma. Flavor was sweet malty and of coffee. To me this had the qualities of both dry stout and sweet stout.. kinda reminded me of Guinness, but also kinda reminded me of Mackesonís. WONDERFUL STOUT!

Most chocolate Iíve ever tasted in a beer. Reminded me of chocolate milk. I love it, and will most certainly be drinking it again. Canít get enough of it.

500ml bottle. Pours pitch black with a small head. Lots of milk chocolate and hints of coffee on the nose. First taste and the chocolate and coffee are there again. Mouthfeel is slightly thick, coats the mouth like cream. After taste is the same, with some dry malt. Not much boozy warmth, very easy drinking for its 6.5%.

Bottle 500ml. Great beer, alcohol is well hidden. Aromas of milky chocolate, coffee. Taste is sweet, with bitter and spicy notes. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Black with a frothy white head.

Really nice stout with distinct licorice notes (Bassetís liquorice?). Good creaminess and solid foam which unfortunately disappears somewhat quickly. A nice bitterness gives a long and pleasant aftertaste.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Got this one from the Beer Seller in Williamsburg, VA. For starters, I donít like green or greenish-yellow bottles, but thatís the only negative I have about this one. Pours blacker than Yaphet Kotto, with a nice light brown head and superb lacing. The aroma is pure heaven....coffee, molasses, chocolate, cabernet, and some smoky peaty olfactory sensations. The taste is very smoky, with a lot of malt, coffee, dark chocolate, peat, and scotch. The finish is roasty, smoky, creamy, with a slight dry finish (even though this is categorized as a sweet stout, I consider it more a dry stout based upon the flavor profile). This one reminds me a lot of Alaskan smoked porter, which is one of my favorite dark beers of all time. This is one of the better stouts Iíve ever had.

This bottled brew poured a small head of fine to large sized dark brown colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body was opaque black in color with no visible carbonation. The aroma was very nice with notes of vinous molasses and dark chocolates. The mouth feel was smooth and malty and lingered in the finish. The flavor contained notes of nice malty molasses hops and chocolates.
