2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2013 This is not a stout. This tastes like someone rung out a rag they used to soak up a spilled porter. AND BOTTLED IT!! Honestly, this is a drain pour.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle, pours dark brown with a tan head. Nose is odd, there are some roasty almost smokiness to it, but also minerally and metallic, maybe some soy. Coco with some light chocolate flavors, really kind of bland with no defining characteristics. Body is light, not what I expect out of a good stout. with moderate carbonation. Underwhelming.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Wanted to try new beers so picked this up in a mixed 6 pack. Hopefully the other five will be better. This pours a lighter brown than a lot of stouts I drink. The smell reminds me of coffee. I donít get a lot of chocolate in smell or taste. It has a burnt roast feel, and an acidic taste. Not much I liked about this at all.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. The aroma is mostly malt. The taste is a little thin and has a metal taste to it. A easy drinking stout.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Prominent, sharp carbonation but the texture is still relatively smooth. Aroma and flavor is more like an oatmeal... porter... than a stout. Big, toasted bread notes, some coffee, into a slightly acrid sweet and sour finish. Body is much lighter than expected for an oatmeal stout. The body combined with the carbonation makes this surprisingly refreshing, oddly.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Translucent deep orange-brown body, thin cream head. Woody nose, toasty with light chocolate sweetness; wispy. Thin body, acidic and somewhat biting, woody, with dark chocolate and roast. The wispy acidity is distracting. Not a very good stout.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
$2.75 at my local beer store. Served in a tulip
A - Dark brown with no head
S - cocoa nibs and oatmeal thickness. Every smell is muted though. Smells old.
T - Very sweet and mild but the chocolate is sort of anti chocolate. Not really very chocolatey.
M - The taste goes away pretty fast which is disappointing even if there is no chocolate in the beer.
O - Drinkable but not recommended.

12 ounce bottle, pours a jet black color, not much aroma, weak chocolate, sweet malt, and a touch of oats. Flavor is watered down chocolate, touch of oats, and a hint of licorice. Real thin body, was expecting more.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Three Tomatoes, Burlington, VT 12oz ($4): Pours a dark brown with a light head. Aroma is mostly of weak chocolate. Taste is kind of watery, slightly sweet, and mild chocolate. Body was not too my liking, nor was the taste. I could easily live without this.
