3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
1 pint can poured into an English Pint at 50°. Color is black with good carbonation and a small tight tan head. Aroma is a burnt coffee scent with a sweet chocolate note. Bold medium body that goes down crisp yet has a smooth mouth feel. Flavor is deeply roasted giving a nice coffee taste with sweet vanilla and a hint of fruit that reminds me of orange/chocolate candy. The hops show with a faint spiciness and mellow bitterness. After taste is clean, the sweet flavors build up a bit then step back and let the bitterness hanging around. Overall I like it, its a tasty take on a Sweet Stout.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
From 16 oz. can to tulip. Pours a medium brown with moderate head. Sweet and funky on the nose. Not really pleasant in the aroma, taste or finish. Would not purchase. Pass.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 ounce can, 11 238 stamped on the bottom side of it. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. Aroma is roasted malt, bittersweet and milk chocolate, and some coffee. The taste is just like the aroma, with a good balance between the sweet and bitter flavors. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s a little on the thin side but also a bit coating with moderate carbonation. It’s smooth and very easy to drink. I think it’s a solid overall brew, I’d buy this again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16oz. can. I finally decided not to let the name dissuade me from trying this stuff. Sweet, milk chocolate aroma, roasty and creamy with lighter notes of coffee and caramel. Black in color with dark brown highlights, head is off-white, fine and lasting. Flavor is decidedly sweet and chocolatey, these aspects dominating throughout, with lighter amounts of roastiness and faint coffee towards the finish, also a tinge of bitterness appearing here. Smooth, light and creamy on the palate, body is light-medium. Perhaps not a lot going on here, but pleasant enough and certainly easy to quaff.

Can… Pours coal black with a small, frothy, khaki head. Decent retention. The nose furnishes deeply roasted malts, toasted pistachios, vanilla, a touch of fudge and a splash of espresso. Medium to full-bodied and mildly creamy with limp carbonation. Sweet, roasty, fudge flavor – very low bitterness level. Minerally, lightly sweet finish. Can courtesy of StFun!

Purchased from City Cellars in Cincinnati, Ohio - Well, this one is basically bison chocolate and malty madness... it’s a goode beer, a fine sweet stout, but not worth the price I paid (8.99) I paid for the four can pack.
