3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours nearly black with a thin brownish head. Nice aroma of coffee and chocolate. Heavy on the palate like a stout should be. Good flavor with notes of bitter chocolate and cereal (maybe oatmeal?). Bitter aftertaste. A good stout.
On tap at the brewpub. Long time ago. This was the first and the best one of the night. The type of sweet stout I enjoy. I have little recollections on details. Shameless tickmark here for the hoarding. KBBS (7) - - AUG 4, 2017 does not count
On tap. Yummy stout, very nicely balanced. Dark, toasty and just a bit of sweet.

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 (23) - 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.

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 (249) - 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. Bebum (1008) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 9, 2017
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 (4343) - 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.
