3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an inky, oily looking black with a minimal, although long lasting tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, cocoa, chocolate, and just hints of licorice. The taste is plenty of malts, more earthy actually. There is still a healthy amount of chocolate, especially in the aftertaste. The chocolate aftertaste is rather subtle, but it does linger in your mouth. I still find very subtle impressions of licorice. This is a bit sweet as well. The body is medium, while it has a smooth, creamy texture. Carbonation is limited. Very easy drinking here, although I get the feeling it might be a bit stronger than I realize.

Bottle pours black with dark tan head. Lots of chocolate to the nose and palate. Nice and smooth, not a lot of bitterness. Would drink another

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark brown almost black like oil with similar viscosity and khaki colored head. Chocolate, and lots of it, oats, and a little roast on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied and nice mouthfeel. Finishes with more chocolate and a nice balance of bitterness and sweetness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a medium khaki head that leaves very little lacing in the glass. Aroma is dark fruit and chocolate. Taste is full of dark chocolate and a pinch of fig. Has a bitter front end on the tongue but dissipates quickly in a flourish of chocolate. This is a finely crafted stout.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark brown color with a rich and creamy, lasting tan head. Roasted malt and dark chocolate dominate the aromas, I think that is right where it should be. Hints of oatmeal only solidify the scents. Thick and creamy feel. Hints of dark caramel in the front. Roasted malts and extra dark chocolate work their way in mid quaff. A bit meaty at time. Still a solid stout. 2/10

Bottle. Deep black with very thin tan head. Aromas of chocolate, and dark roasted chicory with a hint of vanilla. Taste is creamy chocolate and dark roasted malt. Full bodied and creamy on the palate with light carbonation. Very satisfying.

Bittle. The pour is dark with little top. The aroma is a chocolate malt bomb. The taste is just a solid stout that I could drink all day.

A little harsh aftertaste and not too thick, but pretty chocolatey. Pretty good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on my company holiday from home. Appearance is a creamy pitch black with a light tan head that laces to the glass. Aroma is rich in chocolate, lactose, light smoke, light vanilla, and oats. Taste is pretty good, chocolate, licorice, oil like consistency, doesn’t feel too rich, definitely enjoyable. Another good one from this great brewery.
