4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Poured an opaque mahogany color. Aroma was very strong and pleasant, mostly chocolate and coffee, very sweet-smelling. Flavor was quite different, very sour up front, some roasted malt taste, with a long finish and coffee aftertaste. Palate was very lively for a stout, but thick nonetheless. Overall a great tart stout.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Deep brown with copper highlights and an enormous over-inflated finely bubbled head that took five installments to pour. Aroma is sweet roast and light plastic. Over-carbonated palate, thin mouthfeel, roast and plastic again. I hope this is an off bottle, otherwise this is an appalling beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had this a while back at the brewery. Pours a jet black small tan head. Smells sweet malty and of roasted barley. Nice roasty taste as well as some chocolate. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Nice tasting beer, much better than their lighter beers.

12oz bottle. Dark brown with a creamy light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and some lactose. Flavor is semi-sweet chocolate, light bitter roast and a sugary sweetness. Medium to full body with a creamy mouth feel. Pretty good stout, rich and malty just a touch on the sweet side.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nothing going on here. Medium bodied stout which doesn’t really offer anything interesting. Roasted aromatics, slightly creamy body. A bit too thin for me.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle from savvy1982.
Appearance : Black with huge foamy brown head.
Aroma : Roasted malt, light coffee, light acidity. Nice chocolate with light hops.
Taste : Roasted malt with light sour tang. Light chocolate and light coffee. Finish is very thin and dry with roasted malt, light fruity notes and light sour tang. Carbonation is very fizzy, a bit too much.
Overall : Weird beer. Most likely infected with the sour tang and the overly fizzy carbonation. That being said, it tasted pretty good. I just have a hard time enjoying something sour that doesn’t appear like it was done on purpose. Carbonation is way too intense. The sour tang doesn’t fit the beer that well.
