2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours black with a moderate off-white head. Mild aroma of roasted malt and some chocolate. The flavor is again roasted malt with some chocolate. Medium bitterness at the finish and somewhat dry. Chalky mouthfeel. This is probably not something I would be interested in revisiting.

Bottled. A black beer with a slight tan coloured head. The aroma is roasty and smoky with fruit and lactic notes. The taste is fairly dry with light roast and some coffee. Decent if unspectacular

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the tiger. Perfect start to a wild night. Pours a dark brown body with a tan head. Chocolate a not of smoke and a light bitter coffee finish. No etoh or real hop character to boot, the pint was gone as fast as it was poured.

Bottle at home ... Deep black... Very chocolaty malts ... sweet milky chocolate... tasty little roast quite dry ... a distinctive american tone not sure what it is but its something thats noty usually present in UK stout and porters... nice but unsatisfing in the end (though im still scoring above average)

This was a 12oz botlle dated 7-23-08,so it was very fresh.This offering poured out cola looking,a dark brown with a thin tan head.Aromas were of chocolate and roasted malt.Taste also had heavy chocolate,vanilla and a slight hop-dry finish.Not too bad,although a bit thin.
