3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle, consumed on 4-13-12. Aroma features plum, dirt, carob, milk chocolate, chalk, peach, citrus, and muffin scents. Pours dark brown with a moderate amount of deep taupe / tan head. Produces okay, think lacing. Rich, melted-chocolate-like appearance. Lightly sweet yet dry taste. Flavors include dark, pitted fruit, crackers, and baked goods. Milky and creamy taste. Dry finish reminiscent of coffee with milk. Improves as it warms and upon multiple sips. Medium to heavy body. Lively, oily, and smooth in the palates. Overall, a good, not great, and not memorable brew.

Dark beer flavors with a smooth finish. Maybe a little watery. Not as strong on the palate as other dark beers

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark, oily black with small head. Strong aroma of roasted (almost burnt) grain. Flavors include chocolate and coffee, some licorice and roast grain, with an underlying boozy-alcohol flavor. Mouthfeel is a bit on the thin side for a stout. Could use a bit of reworking.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at brewery. Nice deep and dark the only thing lacking was the palate. For a stout it was not as creamy as I prefer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is black as night. Thanks to the Mill Town Mashers for this by the way!
Smell is coffee, cocoa, burnt toast, and loads of malt. Taste is bready and toasty, with a surprisingly strong oat presence. A lingering bitterness akin to baking chocolate rounds out the finish. Very good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice black pour with foamy dark tan head. Aroma is earthy and quite chocolatey. Taste is rather sweet but not overly so. Lots of sweet chocolate, caramel, a little roasted malt and just a hint of bitter hops. Very easy drinking and quite tasty, even more so as it warms up.

Palate: medium body, very smooth an daily texture. Shorter finish.
Overall: a very drinkable beer. Nice flavor and texture. Lacks some depth, and richness. A little too short on the finish. Still very nice
