3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a relatively thick, deep brown, black in the glass. Medium dark tan head that settles quickly. Aroma is sweet and malty, with coffee and chocolate notes. Palate is only medium thick, with a fair amount of carbonation. Sweet at first but not cloying, with a crisp finish. A lot of roasted coffee and molasses taste on the end. Pretty good, nicely smooth.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown pour with a minimal head. Aromas of chocolate and coffee. Tastes like a milk stout, but it is completely dairy-free; cocoa and espresso and roasted malts. As advertised it has a smooth, creamy texture. Not terribly impressed with this one.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Inky black with a thick, mocha head. Roasted/burnt malt prominent on the nose and palate. Rich mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. This stout is a crash course on malt!

Great Majestic dark stout. A fine refreshing drink. I would recommend not having more than one in an evening. Heavy. Something to sip on. burnt Carmel undertones, creamy, thin coffee-ness, mild chocolaty taste. Good to let it breath in a glass. Not happy with the palate, a bit too sharp. A fine beverage overall.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
The best word to describe this beer is creamy... creamy pour, creamy head, and creamy mouthfeel... more than hints of mocha and bitterness. Good on special nights but the rule of too much of a good thing applies with this beer. A little to specific for a staple beer, but deliscious the same

Pours black with light head, lacing consistent throughout. Smells of roast coffee, cream, chocolate. Smooth, velvet-like texture but not quite on the level of a good RIS mouthfeel. Good beer, would buy again. Bargain at $1.80/bottle.
