4.18/5  rDev +8.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pretty great opaque looking 5.3% beer if you ask me, looks creamy with a dark tan cap.
The nose is milk chocolate with a bit of roasty notes sort of like a mild coffee, little sweetness.
The vanilla comes out much more in the flavors then the aroma, makes a vanilla creamy coffee sort of deal, but the sweetness is strong and lasting.
mouthfeel is low carb and creamy in an almost nitro way, great.

This is the best beer Finch has made yet, or maybe i should say the only noteworthy beer they've made yet, i really dig it. one of the better 5% stouts i've had at all.

c/3 = average

Love,
Chad

4.04/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured a dark chocolate opaque color in a stein with a 4F head which slowly resolves.

The intial aroma is chocolate and dark roasted malt. The aroma lingers for most of the tasting- at the end of tasting the aroma is mostly dark roast.

The mouth feel is smooth- very little carbonation.

The taste is chocolate, vanilla, and a hint of sweetness.

The finish is slightly hoppy and smooth.

Overall, an excellent, easy drinking stout. I am a big fan of Finch beers- easy drinking, not overdone, and lots of flavor.

3.58/5  rDev -7.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

$ 2.99/16 oz can at Lager mill
16 oz can ar 45 degrees into imperial pint glass
Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate
Head average (4.5cm), medium brown, creamy with rocks, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm layer
Lacing poor, few small islands of small bubbles
Flavor begins with heavy chocolate presence, which slowly fades from slightly sweet to slighty bitter. No alcohol, no hops, no diacetyl.
Palate is medium to full, creamy, soft carbonation

A not too bad stout, but pretty heavy into the chocolate. Good palate and aroma, but the rapidly diminishing small head and poor lacing detract from the appearance.
