3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet coffee malt aroma. Very dark brown with brown head. Roast and chocolate, but lots of coffee, and a coffee finish. Moderate sweetness balances the roast nicely. A little spicy.

Tap, pours a dark brown with a khaki colored head, sweet taste of cream, chocolate, some vanilla, and roasted malt, has a little coffee bitter finish, it is a touch on the thin side but still a very solid stout.

Pours dark mahogany with a thick tan head. Aroma is coffee and oats. Taste is nice and full but dissipates quickly. There butting on the backend...it’s just gone.

Can. Pours cola colored with large bubbly head that leaves in a hurry. Nose is chocolate, caramel. Taste adds some coffee. My only complaint is the watery mouthfeel.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark in the glass with a nice beige head. The beer starts smooth, roasted. The mainpart is slightly malty sweet, roasted, but a bit undeep - I miss the bitterness that would have really nice fitted to this brew. So with only 20 IBU it has nearly no aftertaste. Very sad. --> Nice beginning, fast ending. --> 10/12/4/10

Mahogony trimmed black body beneath a fading 1.5" light khaki head leaving flat dense shallow lace all around
Aroma of creamy lactic blending caramel notes and pleasant chocolate cake with a controlled dark chocolate-coffee influence introducing subtle bitter nuance on a light-medium, mildly carbonated body finishing with hints of dark fruit, and a touch of vanilla, smooth chocolate on the dark side of sweet rounding out, solid session
