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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Classic chocolate, coffee bean, sweet smell, motor oil darkness, great coffee/bitter chocolate taste, the bitterness hangs around. ABV is just the right amount. You do get that warmy, boozy feeling in the throat, even though its just 9.3%. Good stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Silky dark brown with a dense tan head. Aroma is sweet milk chocolate, actually more like chocolate milk to be precise. Bitter chocolate and hard roast flavour, ending with a dry bitterness and more than a hint of booze. Decent but not outstanding.

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.
