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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can pour. Black with light beige head. Aroma is chocolate. Taste is chocolate with a pleasant sweetness, and a bitterness that matches the 20 IBUs. Mouthfeel is right down the middle, thin for a stout and not as creamy as I had hoped. Excellent carbonation. Refreshing taste. The low ABV makes it an excellent choice for a sessionable stout.

Canned. Black pour, tan head faded quickly. Roasty malt nose. Rasty, slightly smoky, sweet chocolatey flavor. Moderately bitter finish. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Nice flavor, well balanced, but nothing really stands out. A nice drinking stout.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black color no head. Slightly roasty milk chocolate aroma, hint of tobacco. Similar flavor, very creamy, sharp tobacco bitterness to go against the sweet malt. A bit thin but at 5% ABV I won’t complain. Pleasant drink.
