3.5/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Very very dark brown but with noticeable clarity as it pours, thin brown head. Chocolate, asphalt, coffee and faint dark fruit on the nose. As the beer airs out a bit, more chocolate comes through covering up the initial asphalt like smell.

Pretty nice stout. Smooth creamy body with a decent amount of carbonation. Mild chocolate and cocoa powder up front rolls into a bitter black chocolate and coffee taste with an underlying earthy bitterness. Faint chalky mouthfeel. Good balance. Faint alcohol heat and mild bitterness that builds on the back of the tongue. Not overly complex but has enough going on. Overall a pretty nice stout but should definitely come in 6 packs. Alcohol heat and astringency takes away from the beer slightly.

3.31/5  rDev -7.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Black in color,but some light does manage to peek through. A fingernail thin layer of khaki colored head is present and doesn't cover quite the entire top. Light notes of chocolate are all I get with the aroma. I get predominately sweet chocolate and a light,neutral hoppiness in the front of the palate. The mouth is a bit sticky and viscous. Somehow the chocolate and the hoppiness comes off a bit cloying. Sweet and slightly bitter is odd.

3.23/5  rDev -10%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Dark brown/tan, Not much of a head and minimal lacing.

Smell - Chocolate, roasty malts, cocoa, molasses, vanilla. Some milk notes along with some caramel.

Taste - Starts out with a cocoa, some malts and lactose milk. Kind of odd milky flavor along with molasses. Some raisin and a little cherry show up. Not overly chocolate flavored, and has a bite of alcohol warmth at the finish.

Mouthfeel - Malts and lactose milk coat the tongue. Palate gets more malts, some cocoa and sugars, along with some alcohol. Aftertaste is milky and weak malts.

Overall - Boring, weak flavored and lacking chocolate. If it wasn't for the molasses this would be one bland beer. Nothing id want to drink again.
