3.93/5 rDev +13.9%
Batch #4, bottled 4/22/12, 7.1% ABV
A: Pours dark brown with a big dense light brown head. Fades slowly, leaving almost no lacing at all oddly enough.
S: Smells mainly like dark chocolate plus a little coffee and some chicory and ginger.
T: Dark chocolate up front, followed by coffee and spicy chicory. Ends with more chocolate (a little creamier this time). Lingering spices (there's the ginger), chicory and some earthiness in the aftertaste.
M: Somewhat thin, but otherwise smooth.
O: Decent stout, not a big fan of chicory myself so that definitely detracts. Pretty simple otherwise, mostly a chocolately stout but not too strong of a flavor either. Kinda has a belgian-style twist with the spices and the earthiness.

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.

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.

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.
