2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours thin and lite. Stout? Milk Stout? Buffalo Sweat Stout... I think that is it.
Tastes of oversteapped tea that has been put into a milk style stout. Thin and roasty but not smokey... more burnt.
Not a repeat offender.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is very good beer! Served at a good temperature with a nice tan foamy head that soon settled and some lace. Color is actually a clear obviously very dark ruby red (thanks to my trusty iPhone flashlight), but opaque seeming black brown. Arina us roast, malt, treacle, caramel, toffee, cocoa, coffee. Flavor’s like nose, sweet comes out and is perfectly balanced by the bitter malt, hop, and carbonic tang. Body is very good and carbonation a touch soft. Finish is like flavor and tapers nicely with medium length.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into a snifter. Dark, dark and darker color. BLACK. Thick two fingers of head that refused to budge.
Lots of burnt and roasted malt and coca.
Bready, roasted malt and a little less burnt malt. A very mild bitterness.
Super creamy and smooth. Really amazing texture. Lighter body than expected with moderate carbonation.
Hits the spot for a milk stout. Easy to drink and really good.

pint can to glass; rec’d from emeinz in trade; Thx Eric! nice aroma - tobacco? and roasted things. nice dark pour -then the negative start; way too watery for a stout - not much carbonation or flavor - goes down easy but no reason to...

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A deep brown color with a foamy tan head and lacing. The aroma is sweet malt and coffee, and the flavor has sweet malt up front with the coffee and bolder malt taking over in the middle. It has a light-medium body and a smooth aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Received in trade from Josh.
Pours a super dark ruby with a 1 finger head. It dissipated very quickly.
Aroma is malty, chocolate. It is very sweet.
Taste follows. It's very smooth with just the right amount of carbonation. Really big sweetness that has the right amount of roastyness.
Overall, a very nice sweet stout.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
16 oz tallboy can from BlueDog Lansdale. Poured a dark black body with an average sized foamy beige head. Aroma of cola soaked brown bread, light coffee and dark cheap chocolate followed by a slight touch of cardboard. Medium body with average to strong carbonation but a quick fading aftertaste knocks the palate rating down a touch. Flavor is solid with lots of roastiness, charcoal, slight chocolate, light coffee, milk and a hint of dark berries. This is a solid beer I would happily drink again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can - Pours deep black with a fairly thin tan head. Nose is charcoal and coffee grounds, balanced with a milky sweetness. Very pleasant. The balance works just as well in the taste, as the roastiness brings out some nice coffee flavors that transition into a roasty, milky sweetness through the finish. Creme brulee, brown sugar, and a bit of cinnamon mingle. A touch of bitterness in the long finish. Smooth and velvety in the mouth with a pretty thick body. A bit too much biting carbonation, but the whole concoction is pleasant to drink. I like it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16oz Can. Thanks for sharing, Emeline! A fine stout indeed. The aroma leaks caramel and the flavors find a fine complexity of lactose and caramel. The roasted edges are thinner, but the best part about this beer is finding browned sugars pairing beautifully with the creaminess of the lactose and the lightness of the style. Very quaffable.
