3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. can from build-a-six at Binnyís. Hey, nice smell right out of the can, hearty roast grains without the usual burn or astringency. Rich chocolate notes. Pours a solid black body, head is foamy since itís still canned with CO2, but hey. Taste does offer creamy texture of an oatmeal stout. More dry than sweet. Some coffee bitterness once I get more tasted. Very slight citrus edge, perhaps some PNW hops in there. I note that the can currently reads 6% abv.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from Crossroads. Pours a strange cola cola color with a small off white to almost tan head. Aroma is of some mild roast, light chocolate, some sweet syrup notes. Taste is much the same, chocolate, mild roast coffee, some syrup, mild sweetness with a little touch of bitterness. Body is not creamy as advertised.

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!
