3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2010 16 oz can. Pours a nice deep brown nearly black with a creamy small tan head. Aroma is toasty and chocolatey as expected with some nice dark nutty toasty nuts. Flavor is actually really nice, deep toasty cocoa and some touches of coffee. Picks up some creamy almost chocolate milky. Type of flavors. Very smooth and creamy. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Maybe not the most. Complex stout but super smooth nd drinkable, I could drink this all night.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a dark brown color with a white head. The aroma is coffee, toffee and chocolate. A very nice smelling stout.
The flavor is coffee, chocolate, caramel and roasted malt. This beer is a malt bomb and all of the various malt flavors work very well together.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear but very dark, big stiff tan beady head. Good tap handle. Decent roast-coffee aroma with light creosote. Clean, watery, light bodied, roasty dry. Simple but effective session brew. Finish has a slight creosote/chemical rush, but then quits. On tap, Flying Saucer, KC.
