4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Subtle chocolatey aroma, near-perfect tan head, dark, medium bodied, malty, coffee stout taste, finishes long and bitter, like dark chocolate.

3.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2005 Perfect looking beer, as one would expect from the nitro-can. Jet black, Guinness looking head. Not much smell other then some very slight sulfur. Palate is pretty smooth. Taste, however, a little on the bland side. Maybe because I prefer coffee stouts to choco-stouts, but this is so-so. Not much to report. Slight chocolate and slight sour. I enjoy the Young’s Oatmeal Stout much better. My party store sells beer as old as Queen Elizabeth. So, I’ll give it another try one day.

It has a nice color to it, very dark, my favorite. aromas of chocolate and a hint of chocolate, or maybe coffee. watery, but, rich flavor. overall a decent beer

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From Nitro Can. Deep Dark colored body with a large dark tan head. Watching the cascade of the pour with the thick head was mouth-watering. Very smooth chocolate taste with coffee and roasted malt flavor as well. Sweet but not overpowering, and has a slightly bitter aftertaste like semi-sweet chocolate. Excellent dessert beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
dark black pour w/ a tall well laced tan fluffy head w/ some nice cascading on the pour. Smells of odd yeast and chocolate, roasted malt, and something else I can’t quite pick out. Palate is light but well coated and nicely creamy. The flavor reminds me of a light chocolate mouse. hints of smoke in the finish as well. Overall pretty good but a bit to much chocolate in my book.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Picturesque pitch balck pout, ruby fringed; topped with super creamy fine tan head. Savory olive oil and bread aroma. Rich and deep. Rich, somewhat smokey chocolate malt, with wisps of fresh cocoa. Intricate and warming. Palate is a tinge watered, but ultrasmooth. Pineapple?

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2005 1 Pint Botltle:
Pours Black with a small Tan head that didn’t last long. First sip tapped into roast coffee flavor, I started to taste the chocolate toward the middle as the stout warmed. It was a nice tasting beer, and not as sweet as I expected, but nice.
Aroma I got was of roast coffee, overall a very nice stout all around.
Re-rated 10-28-2005: Had a fresher bottle tonight, Smooth easy chocolate flavor all the way through. small tan head. nice sweet chocolately aroma. still a great stout and a nice session beer for me.
Re-Rated. 11-30-2005. From Can.
Poured a rich brownish color, about 1 inch, off-white fluffy head that lasted intil final sip. Aroma was malty and chocolately. Flavor was big on chocolate. Again stll a session beer for me, this one is easy to drink and goes down smooth.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2005 This is a very nice brew, not to sweet, as some other sweet stouts can be....very solid in all departments....a winner, especially considering how widely aval. it is!

Nitro can. jet black with a creamy, lasting nitro head. Roasted malt and dark chocolate aroma. Flavor is a complex melding of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and floral hops. Velvety smooth texture and a Loonnng chocolatey, roasted finish makes this one of the best sweet stouts I’ve had.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark black with a think head. It’s not too sweet, but sweet enough that I wouldn’t want more than one at a sitting. Besides chocolate, has coffee overtones.
