3.5/5  rDev +1.4%

A- dark mahogany to black, thin 1 finger mocha head, bubbly lacing
S- ginger, Belgian yeast, roasted coffee, bakers chocolate, burnt toast
T- chocolate, spices, ginger, coffee, cocoa powder
M- medium body and carbonation. Nice bitter chocolate up front then the ginger strokes the tongue gently.
O- nice beer with some twists. NS likes to push the envelope a bit with their beer and express their creativity. It works for me.

In a tulip, this beer was very dark brown, almost black, with some garnet. There was a small tan head.

I found the aroma to be a little on the meek side. Roasted malt/coffee. Sweet.

The taste improved on the aroma. Dark coffee, sweet chocolate; nicely juxtaposed. There was a bit of spiciness that I hadn't detected in the aroma.

I thought this beer was a bit on the thin side. Definitely not as robust as I was expecting.

3.7/5  rDev +7.2%

Appearance: high carbonation, 3/4 inch head, opaque, black in color

Smell: milk and dark chocolate

Taste: milk and dark chocolate, charred malt, vanilla, and light nutmeg at the end

Mouthfeel: Sweet with slight bitterness and a dry semi-bitter finish, heavy body, moderate carbonation

Overall: A tasty chocolate stout with an amazing aftertaste. This is my first bottle from Night Shift and based off of this, I will definately be picking up more of their beer.

Thanks to jaasen64 for this one! Batch #5, 5/13/12

A: Pours a nice black color with a small khaki colored head on top, not much retention, leaving a thin ring on top. Very thin lacing forms on some of the glass.

S: Upfront there is some ginger and chocolate with some light roasty malt. A little bit of chicory comes in too. Reminds me chocolate covered gingers from Trader Joe's.

T: A little bit of chocolate and faint chicory with just a touch of cream. Not much ginger at all. A little bit of brown sugar and molasses.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Just a touch thin.

O: Really liked the aroma, just wish the ginger and chocolate had been that strong in the flavor profile and been just a touch fuller bodied.
