3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Pours a pitch black with a shimmering tan head. Nose reminds very much of chocolate-laden vietnamese coffee...very sweet and lactic based. Body has nice carbonation, perfect for the style and still retains some silkiness. Quite sweet to start but yields to some roasty malt notes with a bit of chocolate. Good stout.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from trade with StFun. Black pour, with a thick tan head and lots of lacing. Great looking beer. Smell is of sweet malt, with a bit of roasted character, but light on the roasted component. Taste is sweet malt with a balance of roasted malt, but the sweet character of this beer leads the way. Itís not over done, fortunately, but that component does stand out. Full mouthfeel, but not thick or syrupy at all. Relatively little in the way of hop presence here. Finishes with the tastes lingering. A nice stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber bottle. Poured black in color with a medium sized tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet with chocolate and some light coffee. Tastes mostly of sweet milk chocolate, cream, with some light coffee. This would be a fantastic stout to drink with a chocolate cake desert. Very nice.
