3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color is opaque black with a tan head that clings to the glass. Nose is creamy, mildly nutty with an incongruous hint of sage. Body is medium-heavy, right about where I like my stouts and the taste is creamy, showing notes of chocolate, cream, nuts and coffee. A little bit of sweetness followed by a semi-bitter finish that lingers for a moment.
Bottle from Meijers, pours creamy brown. Nose is full chocolate, coffee, dried fruit. Palate is creamy chocolate, red grapes, coffee, hoppy finish. Great sweet stout! Nicely balanced. DougsBeer (11) - Nebraska, USA - JUN 30, 2017

Aroma of coffee. Dark Black Color. Starts off a touch sweet, with coffee, and chocolate. Has a bitter finish, but a but bit too bitter. The mouthful is watery. Its an OK sweet stout but not great. jrodooo5 (1672) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JUN 22, 2017
Aromatic, pretty, & tasty this is an excellent stout! Pours black w/ a tan head & solid lacing. The aroma has some nice chocolate notes as well as a hint of roasted malt. The flavor is quite similar. It has a lovely soft mouthfeel as advertised. The chocolate carries throughout. Just a very good example of the style overall! svandyke (236) - USA - JUN 21, 2017
12oz (Educators on Tap)- Nice white head with some lacing. Good dark color but can still see through it. Great vanilla and nutty notes and then roasty malt flavor. A bit cloying tasting.

Darkbrown, tall, short-lived head.
Full body, flavorful, smooth, not silky, highly carbonated, lively mouthfeel despite low ABV, average length.
Moderately bittersweet, just right acidity, predominantly bitter finish.
Strong flavor of un-malted roasted grains, dark roast coffee.
Enjoyable but not high on my list.

Nice drinkable beer. Not overwhelming in any way. Some roast flavor with a little chocolate at the end. Epic it is not. johnnnniee (4312) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 28, 2017
Bottle from Colonial Spirits.
Pours a solid dark brown with faint garnet at the edges and a frothy creamy tan head that persists. Roasted coffee milk on the nose with faint chocolate dark fruit and earth. Creamed coffee and light dried fruit wrapped in a creamy bubbly mouthfeel. Pretty damn tasty.
