Poured a dark chocolate brown with an off white tan head which dissipated quickly. Aroma hits you up front with oatmeal followed by roasted malts. The chocolate comes forward a little as it warms. The taste is roasted malts up front followed by bitter chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium and silky smooth.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into an American pint glass. Pours extremely dark opaque brown, looks thick. Two fingers of creamy beige head, thick and smooth on top, with big coarse bubbles on the bottom. Nose is chocolaty and milky, it actually smells a lot like Left Hand Milk Stout. A bitter malty flavor, with a very subtle chocolate note. If I had not read the bottle, I would assume this was just an oatmeal stout. Medium bodied, kind of thin and slick, not my favorite texture for a stout, with a nice long bitter aftertaste. A good beer, but not something I would go out of my way to find.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from trade with Crajun. Pours a dark black color with a small head that quickly fades. Very nice aroma of cocoa, caramel, light roasted coffee, and a hint of smoke. Taste is slightly sweet, slight bitterness. Nice balance of cocoa, bitter chocolate, coffee and smoke. Fairly thick mouthfeel, smooth and somewhat creamy. Really nice stout. I’m a fan.

Thanks to GatorGuy92 for sharing this one. Cheers, Matt! Pours a porter brown color with a tan head. Nose is roasted malts, some chocolate, some roasted coffee, and some earthy cocoa. Flavor is similar- roasted malts, cocoa, chocolate, mild hops that leave almost as coffee bitterness. Medium in body and nice overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Nearly black, dark, large light beige head, foamy, with fairly nice lacing. Roasted malt nose, soft coffee, sweetened with creamer and sugar. Very minor pasture on tongue. Otherwise roasted malts, coffee, a bit of creamer and sugar to bring out the sweetness. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Seems a bit thinner than I was expecting for a Tyranena. Finishes clean, and just like it started. More coffee than chocolate, black coffee. Wished it were a bit softer, but as its its decent and above average if not a little better than that.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is light cocoa, some smoke, roasty, oats. Pour is the typical stout pour - dark body, off-white head. Flavors are full of chocolate, roast, smoke, some oatmeal, and a light sweetness. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Your basic sweet stout, perhaps the aroma is better than others though; lots of sweet chocolate and roast. It’s plenty nutty and bitter with cocoa and light coffee, but the finish is quick and doesn’t leave you with much to ponder on.
