3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle pours very dark with short lived mocha head. The aroma has dark roasted malts to burnt malts, dark fruity esters, a bit of anise, chocolate malts and earthiness too. The taste is a mix of dark roasted malts moving into burnt malts and coffee. Behind those notes are murmurs of chocolate and molasses. Into the finish it’s pretty much on the burnt malts side. Nice tasting brew and maybe the one I like the most so far from this brewery.

Somewhat rosaty nose with light sweetness as well. Pours dark brown, not much in the way of head or lace. The flavor is roasty up front with a decent lactose sweetness, smooth notes, light dark chocolate notes. Medium light carbonation, smooth, easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
One of the better beers, dark and toasty with burnt chocolate and some wooden aftertones. As with the name it’s slightly creamy at the end. Gives a bit of warmth too

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is heavily toasted malt with chocolate, coffee, and brown sugar. The appearance is dark brown with a small tan head. The taste is like the aroma except it’s dry and not sweet. The palate is average for the style. Overall I am a little disappointed that it’s so dry.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
15-Apr-08 (22-oz bottle: Sampled between rounds while stewarding the 2008 World Beer Cup in San Diego, CA) This fairly uniform stout projects semi-sweet dark chocolate and coffee in both the aroma and flavor. Yeasty and earthy notes are also evident in the nose. On the palate, the entry is a bit flat, showing only generic roast, but the chocolate and coffee finish strongly. Roast adds medium bitterness. The medium-full body comes across as a bit watery at times. Dark-brown in color and fairly muddy with a small, tan head. Not bad overall, but a more interesting nose and a better entry on the palate would greatly improve this beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle pours dark brown/black with the most brown head I’ve ever seen. Aroma is chocolate, cherry cough syrup, coffee, licorice, and roasted malts. Taste has an upfront overly sweetness into roasted and chocolate malts and finishes bitter, creamy all the way through. Not bad but not a fan of the immediate sweetness in the taste.
