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.

Can. Pour is deep brown with a small khaki head. Slight roasted malt character, chocolate, and some sweet cream. Sweet flavors and slightly sugary. Dark chocolate, cream, a hint of gas station coffee (my fav). Medium body. Maybe a tad thin. Pretty solid.

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.

3.4 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.
