4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an opaque black with a medium sized tan head mostly lasting. Nose is of chocolate and molasses. Nice mouthfeel, the taste is of dark roasted malt with hints of coffee, chocolate and caramel. No hops detected. Very smooth, this stoutís tastes are not as pronounced as other stouts I have tried but is nonetheless a good tasting brew. Try it paired with a buffalo burger and raw onion.

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.

Extremely dark pour...darker than guiness. Small brownish head. Aroma is of soy sauce. Taste is chocolate and coffee. Roasted nuts come to mind. Smooth to the palate with very little aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark pour with a medium sized tan head. Smell is coffee, chocolate, and maybe a little bit of vanilla and some brown sugar? molasses. Smooth and easy drinking stout with just the right amount of sweetness, not overbearing. Heavy lacing on my glass throughout the beer. Glad to have this stout around Iowa.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark brown with small off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts, dusty. Taste is sweet roasted malts and a dry bitter finish. Palate is a little thin for the flavor. Overall itís not bad, but nothing Iíd crave.
