This one has been in my fridge for a while, and may not have been at its peak (bottled 1/2012). However, I found nothing wrong. It poured dark brown, almost black. Just lacing for the head. It had the aroma of brown sugar, chocolate, and a slight hint of worchestershire sauce/soy. The taste was full, with dark chocolate, a slight taste of molasses and cinnamon, and a smooth finish. It goes down well and easy.

Pours black with a brown head. Nose of roasted malt. Taste is some bittersweet chocolate, and a really smoky bitter finish. I don't love the smokiness. Makes it tough to really like the beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Where: Old Line Fine Wine Spirits & Bistro.
How: 12 ounce bottle.
Appearance: pours an opaque black with just a touch of brown at the edge when held to the light. One finger of thick, foamy tan head. Not much retention.
Aroma: Strongest note in the aroma is coffee, followed by half and half, and then some melted chocolate.
Taste: Both coffee and half & half are equally strongest here, followed by some lingering acidity, and semi-sweet bitter chocolate chips. The finish is heavy on burnt barley and light smoke.
Palate: Wet to start, then creamy, and dries out considerably. Roasted, dry finish.
Overall: One of the smoothest easiest drinking stouts, Iíve had in a while.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
I donít know how this beer is rated as highly as it is in here. I am very unimpressed. One of those beers where I bought a six pack just to try something new and as soon as I took a sip thought "that was a mistake, should have just bought another unibroue." Watery, no character at all. All you taste is malt and not a very pleasant malt flavor at that. In the same class with Guinness as far as Iím concerned. Might even prefer a Guinness and thatís saying something.
