3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is is somewhat subdued, although it is good. Chocolate and cocoa are what I get most, along with toffee, some vanilla, and I guess some slight spiciness. The taste is rich chocolate, a healthy amount of peppery zest, cocoa, a little bit of coffee and still hints of vanilla. This one is kind of sweet, but it isnít over the top, just enough. Medium bodied, a creamy, slick texture, with carbonation being on the softer side. Chocolate, cocoa and lesser pepper aftertaste lasts a long time. I like this one. Iíve noticed that the more I drink, the more I seem to enjoy it.

Shared, cellared bomber, poured to flight samplers showing a black/brown hue, with a light layer of tan froth that reduced quickly to a ring & film, and left some streaks & spots of lacing. The nose was roasted, with bakerís chocolate, a touch of sweetness, and dusty pepper hints. Moderately bitter and medium+ bodied, the taste continued the aroma notes with mellow pepper, a touch of oily texture, and pleasant dryness to the finish. Most likely lost some of itís original brightness & potency, but otherwise, remained quite tasty.

Black opaque,some tan head, some spotty lace.Vegetably pepper spice aroma with cocoa. Same in taste but with more cocoa,strong vegetably pepper taste, with cocoa and smooth light roast notes. Fairly sweet and chewy. Little bit of heat to balance the sweet but a bit on the sweet side. Not a bad thing, gives a rich taste to it.

Pours black with a brown head and chocolate coffee aroma. Taste is creamy and sweet, nice milk chocolate with coffee, roasted malt, and peppery spice that comes through into the finish, especially the longer it sits, with a smooth, chocolatly finish. Delicious stout

Bottle, shared with my wife and in laws. Silky super dark brown pour with a finely bubbled brown head. Aroma is fudgy chocolate with vegetal undertones. Sweet chocolate liqueur and dark coffee flavour, quite rich, with a peppery vegetal finish. Light lingering prickly heat at the back of the throat. Unanimously voted a winner-- great stuff!
