3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
p2oz bottle, Pours dark black with a light tan head, decent lacing. Aroma is slightly sweet cocoa malt. Taste is roasted chocolate malts and toffee, and some chocolate malts coming through. For a stout it is on the thin and watery side, but still, this brew is a good tasting beer that is worth the try.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from the Party Source. All this time in Ohio and I’m just now getting around to this one. Worst label ever? Pours a deep brownish amber with a small beige head. Aroma of leaves, chocolate, toast, nuts, brown sugar, and cardboard. Flavor of chocolate, nuts, toast, tobacco, earth, and grass. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Easy to drink but not memorable.
