3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz can from Spirits Xroads. Poured a deep black body with a smallertight foamy light tan head. Aroma is pretty good, notes of darker chocolate, oaats, dark toast, soy sauce, black olives and a touch of coffee. Medium body, super soft carbonation that is almost nonexisistant and a quicker fading aftertaste. Flavor is not as good as the aroma, notes of bitter dark chocolate, dark toast, cola, chocolate syrup and some soy sauce. Not bad but nothing to seek out.

12 Oz can. Pours black with a frothy tan head. Nice malt Aromas of coffee, chocolate, molasses and roasted malt. Medium sweet with complex, dark malt flavors: coffee, toffee, chocolate. Finishes with a long, bitter roasted malt and herby hop. Full body with a creamy mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, yum! Great malt character, good texture. What a stout should be.

Can; dark black pour with a light brown head. Aroma of oats, roasted malt, leather, with touch of milky sweetness. Very nice mouthfeel; rich, creamy but light. Some oats, some sweetness, touch of fruits, and mild roasted and caramel. Could really drink a lot of this. Nice beer.

Pours almost black. Coffee and chocolate aroma and flavors. Not a big fan of stouts, but this one is pretty good.

Nearly black pour with a tight bubbled tan head. Quite a roasty nose with some levity brought on by hops. I get this strange caramel mint quality in there as well. A bit cola-esque on the palate with a little warmth thatís kind of strange. That minty sort of quality is still there, which I like, but everything here seems to be in half measures and comes out boring. It feels like thereís lots of potential in this brew but itís scared to be a grown up.

Jet black. Lots of roast and oats and some chocholate on the aroma. On the palate I find it lack a little bit of punch, medium bodied with some bitter notes on the finish. Overall, meh!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can from Hy-Vee Muscatine. Black appearance with a thin tan head, slowly diminishing and sticky lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, oats/grains, espresso and light caramel/toffee. Similar flavor, dark, roasty and malty, mild sweetness balanced by a light earthy bitterness. Medium to full body, creamy and smooth, nice texture, easy to drink. Overall, itís pretty damn good.

Pours a virtual black color with a small thick head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruit,chocolate with a splash of vanilla. Taste of roasted malt/ dark fruit and chocolate. Mild bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Full body, thick and creamy, with just a nice touch of sweetness. Enjoyable beer, worth checking out.
