3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in a flight at Ground Control. Pours a deep brown, nearly opaque, with a small beige head that settles into a ring. Aroma of chocolate, soy, roasted and toasted malts, brown sugar, earth, and booze. The flavor is the same, but possibly a bit more earthy. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a rich, smooth mouthfeel. Surprisingly booze-forward for 6.9%.

Can; poured black with a light brown head. Aroma was roasted with a lot of earth and fruit. Some sweetness and caramel. Flavor was a bit messy. Sickly sweet at times; a bit one note. Not great.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz can pours with a mahogany colored body that has amber edges and supports a thin dark tan head of foam. The aroma offers up roasted malts, some earthy malts, a dash of chocolate and then faint dark fruity ester notes. The taste begins with a nice mix of sweet malts, earthy maltiness and some dark roasted malts. To midway a mild earthy wet tobacco and chocolate sensation join in and their addition fits smoothly into the overall flavor scheme. These notes proceed into the finish where a thin ribbon of sweet dark fruity esters murmurs to the surface. This all comes together very well and a good example of why I enjoy this style.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
At the end of the day what surprises me here is the low ABV. Because this one is nice. Good flavor. On the sweet side. Not chewy. But good.

From can: Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is sugar, chocolate, and a bit of fruitiness. Nice and smooth foreign stout. Requisite amounts of milky chocolate. More chocolate than roast... Slightly sweet, but in the right amount. Nice and balanced.
