3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 22 oz bomber. Dark chocolate brown pour with a light but persistent mocha colored head that leaves a nice long lasting swirl in the glass, light lacing. Aroma is earthy with some eggnog essence, a bit of black topsoil, hint of chocolate. Flavor improves as it warms with some dark bittersweet chocolate, a touch of topsoil, some brief licorice hints. Mouthfeel has a nice delectable chalkiness to it. Balked at getting this several times due to the price - but then I recall all the times I have paid over $6 for a warm beer at a ball game and figured it was worth it.

Bottle. To start its way to cold. Waiting a while for it to warm. Okay. Even after it warms it needs bourbon. I think the raspberry is nicer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from the bottle. Black with a nice long lasting head and lace. Slight smell of chocolate and malt. Not much chocolate taste in this stout compared to others. Sweet roasty taste with some bitterness to it. For a chocolate stout I would not run out to buy this one again.
