3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was great for the low ABV. I was expecting a guinness clone. What I got was a flavourful, big stout which I could have drunk all day. Lots of dark malty goodness. They done good here.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poures deep brown with red highlights. Has a creamy, light tan head. Aroma is light. Notes of malts and roasted coffee beans. Flavor is semi-sweet with a bit of bitterness. Coffee, chocolate and roasted malts are blended rather well making this a pretty tasty brew. It would be nice if the flavor was a little stronger and had a fuller body, but it’s a pretty good stout. I’ll pick this one up again.
