2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Typical color for a coffee stout, with the aroma of those little French coffee candies you find in round tins in gourmet shops. Thin palate (really it has the body of a porter, not a stout), watery even. Not bad, though it tastes like diluted iced coffee - you know, the kind that's been sitting around that all the ice has melted in!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
JoeM pegged this one's lacticness. Thick and rich and lifeless and yet...watery, too? Huh? Sweet, roasty, not too bad. Serious coffee.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very rich, chocolatey and lactic...is this chocolate milk with too much chocolate syrup? No carbonation from the bottle, very, very black and lifeless. Coffee bean dryness with a slight bit of detectable hops in the finish. Too flat and lifeless, but enjoyable in small amounts.
