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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mild aromas of grain, earth & smoke. Jet black pour with little to no head. Malty, yeasty, earthy, tastes. Weak palate with a very thin mouthfeel. Overall a easy drinking stout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can shared thanks to Dmac. Pours out brown, to dark brown with a small fading tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, roast, coffee, tobacco. Taste is chocolate, some light roasty notes, coffee with a little bit of sweetness creeping in there on the back end, and maybe a touch of bitterness. Solid stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours opaque with a bit of translucency on edges. Thin, quickly fading head. and minimal lacing. Nose is sweet roasted malt and light roast coffee, same on taste. A bit watery. Fine, with good balance, sessionable stout. But not at $11/4 pack, soooo not worth it, shoulda got the 10Fidy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark, almost completely black and opaque. Good head that dissipated and left a thin film on top. Lacing that creeps back down the glass. Smells of slightly sweet bitter roasted malts with a touch of coffee. Tastes much like the smell, but with some dark chocolate character that adds nicely to the dark roasted malts, coffee, minimal hops. Itís sweet, although not especially so for the style. This adds a nice dimension as itís a bit different than what I expected. Itís a very flavorful beer. Feels quite thick and full bodied going in, but slightly watery when you swallow. Slightly slick on the tongue, with a very pleasant lingering sweet aftertaste. Very nice and highly drinkable. The moderate ABV makes it easy to drink while the delicious but not overpowering flavor makes me want to have this one again. Value: 6.85 for four 16 oz cans. A good deal.

On tap at Whiteman AFB. I guess itís pretty hard to collect a lot of sweat from buffalo - I mean, the ideaís just crazy. I bet thereís a buffalo mafia that maintains a buffalo sweat shop just so they can meet supply and demand. Iíll tell you something else, if I were a buffalo, Iíd charge double for this stuff and buy a really nice car.
