Ericular (971) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Pours very dark with decent brown head that fades quickly and not much lacing. Aroma is sweet lactose that is pretty restrained overall and has only a hint of roast to it. Taste is much more sweet than stout - which is fine. Then, a little bit of dark malts and just another hint of roast. Not really any coffee. Palate is noticeably carbonated with a pretty thin, hollow, watery finish - the beers only obvious flaw. Still, if this is truly 8%, its masked well, and goes down easy.

Tap at Grumpys Roseville. Black. Sweet aroma with lactose I think. Sweet and roasted malt. Some chocolate. Solid.

Lemke10 (975) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - APR 16, 2016
Pours a silky black color with very little carbonation. Rich robust aromas and toasted malts. A much lighter stout on the tongue. Thin in texture, lots of oatmeal grain but more cocoa than chocolate flavors. Finishes very chalky on the taste buds. Quite interesting to say the least.

Skyview (5706) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2009
On draught at the Blue Door in St Paul, MN. Pours a clear dark cola brown brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that dissipates to a thin white ring. Aroma of toasted dark malt, some lactose, oatmeal, chocolate and a hint of coffee. Taste is medium bodied, a little gritty at first with flavors of toasted dark malt, chocolate some floral hops and some powdered sugar. Finish is semi-sweet, a little metallic texture with a slight oatmeal/lactose aftertaste.

12 oz bottle. Little aroma or taste of the chocolate. Not great but not bad.

Bacterial (2888) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2015
Dark brown pour, but certainly not thick. Tan head. Roasted malt nose with a hint of chocolate. Medium-light mouthfeel. Malty, sweet with a hint of chocolate in the taste.

JPDIPSO (5796) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Brown liquid with a tall tan head that dissipates to a thin lid. Cocoa, grains and light roasted scents. Smooth, but a bit lifeless feeling. Light sweet start, with a touch of roasted malt. Mild herbal hops and bitterness in the middle. Finish is slightly acidic (catching some black malt). Feels warming, but not tasting the alcohol. Dare I say a strong Guinness. 10/12

Black with tan head. Roast, licorice, mild alcohol, chocolate aroma and flavor. Full bodied, syrupy, and alcohol-malt roast finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
