3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice looking pour....deep black with mocha head. Nose of roasted malt, light coffee, mild dark fruit and faint brown sugar. Flavor is silky roast with coffee, cream, and faint dark fruit. Smooth mouthfeel. Maybe a touch thin. This is a real winner in my book.

It is a bit funky, lots of metal and fruit, otherwise tastes like a milk stout. Not great though.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This pours a very dark brown/black color with a very minimal head. The aroma is mild with coffee and roasted malts. The taste isn’t is big and bold as I was expecting. The flavor is pretty simple with roasted malts, caramel malts, and coffee. At 4.5% this is missing the big bold taste that 8.0%+ stouts have. Now putting this stuff in a bourbon barrel would make it taste delicious.

1.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
This is a first, 12oz bottle... I’ve never had this happen to me before. 3 glasses first a shaker, second a pils glass, third a DFH shaped glass... pouring in 2oz of liquid resulted in an entire glass of foam. repeat three times, then pour the remaining 6 or 7oz in the sink where it foamed up an 8" diameter 3" high "cloud" Nice looking mocha foam, with hints of coffee and roast, foam is well foamy and eventually started to settle out, beer tasted okay no obvious infection...weird.
