2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2014 Bottle: Nearly black with some deep-brown shining through the very top, capped with a thick, beige head that leaves nice lacing behind. Aroma is too mild... Some roasted/toasted grain & malt with a nebulous, non-fitting fruity note of faint white grapes & raisins... Strange. Taste has roasted malt, light brown sugar & some toffee, but there’s a strange, almost tangy dark fruit presence that doesn’t really fit. Raisin, black currant, but almost too tangy & tart without a big enough dark-malty presence to account for it. Hint of burnt wood chips in the aftertaste. Weird stout, not my favorite.

12oz bottle from Manahawkin Spirits. Pours a dark brown/almost black cool with a small frothy tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malt, ash, caramel, and a light nuttiness. Taste ashtray, burnt malts, caramel, and nutshells. Mouthfeel is thin and watery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Molasses, nuts, and some spice in the aroma. Bready, nutty flavor with some roast coffee bitterness in the finish. Tasty and easy drinking--I liked this a lot better than I expected given the other ratings I saw.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I enjoy a good dry stout, but this is not one of them. Very thin, watery like chocolate or coffee flavorings to offset the astringent bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pitch black in the glass with aromas of toast, chocolate malt and cookie. Lots of coffee on the palate, with a light and short finish. A hint of sweetness, but most of the malts are a bit beery to really make the most of the rich coffee element of the flavor profile.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Pours deep ruby black, small creamy brown head, nice lacing. Aroma is roasty, cigarettes. Flavor follows, light sweet, light bitter, roasty, a bit burned. Fairly light body, a bit watery. Not bad, but nothing special.
