3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Serving glass: Poured from can into Nonic Imperial Pint.
Appearance: Ruby black with thin tan head and spotty lacing.
Aroma: Sweet molasses, roasted malt and milk chocolate. Smells decadent and rich, especially at first.
Taste: Nice semi-sweet mix of chocolate, molasses, roasted malt and licorice. Minimal bitterness - while the smooth, rounded malts are appreciated, a little hop balance or extra roasted bite could have helped.
Palate: Low carbonation, smooth body that is fairly light. Too thin.
Overall: A solid, malty and drinkable Sweet Stout. Good session beer overall, even if there is no "wow" factor. Probably would be better with a slightly bigger body and a touch more bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours almost black with a smooth, medium, off white head. The aroma contains roasted malts, chocolate, and a little bit of coffee. The taste does lean towards the sweetness. Heavier chocolate, lighter in vanilla and coffee, white still quite roasted. Aftertaste is more bitter and is chocolate and mild coffee. Light in body, creamy in texture, with carbonation being very soft. There isn’t any real negative with this one, although I’d consider this a rather generic offering.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is very roasted with notes of espresso/dark coffee and an underlying sweetness. Flavor is less pronounced, with notes of coffee, espresso, sugar and malt. Mouthfeel is thin but maintains some creamy component. Not a bad sweet stout overall, but nothing that really stands out.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Great aroma and flavor. The nose is coffee with hints of chocolate. Black with a light tan froth. Sweetish coffee and chocolate character with a roast bitterness rather than a hop bitterness. The body is a bit thin and watery for what I would expect of this style; however, it is also very smooth with a sweetish finish.

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.
