Don’t feel like drinking stout. Soft coffee and bailey, mild taste, rather slimy, smooth though. Still below average.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A stout from Bass! But it is nothing special, which is what I expected, truth be told. A light, dry stout with a bread/grain aroma. Light coffee and bran muffin. Pretty thin, but not bad. I would take Bass PA over this.

2 June 2013, tap. Black with thin, creamy head. Nose is bitter dark chocolate, toast. Thin body and mildly fizzy, a bit creamy. Lots of bitter, dark chocolate. Not as balanced as Guinness. Still, it's decent.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
There is no head or lacing on this stout (poured from bottle). There is definitely a roasted malt aroma and taste to it, the problem is, it tastes like a generic stout. The only thing good to use this beer for is a cheap black and tan.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The appearance of this beer combines a dark brown color with a medium tan head that fades quickly, and the aroma combines chocolate malts with roasted ones. The taste fuses a mild umami and a touch of bitterness and sweetness, and the palate combines an average carbonation, slick texture, medium body, and a definite long roasted finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Serving: Bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a very dark brown with slight ruby highlights and short lived, light tan head. The nose has a bit of roast with a slight vegetal note. The flavor has a weird sourness to it with a little nuttiness and slight burnt notes. Dry finish. Similar to Guinness but given the options, I’ll take a Guinness instead.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle from a Kroger. Pours a very dark brown color with a large tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of chocolate and the faintest bit of roast. The taste is chocolate and mild hops. Thin and watery.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. Opaque with a covering of sticky foam. Mild nose of coffee, char, caramel and a dash of orange zest. Taste is caramel apple, sour berry, bittersweet chocolate, with a touch of char on the finish. Medium body is soft and well balanced, but is a tad too fizzy with medium-high carbonation.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottles from Capone’s and Wegman’s Collegeville. Pours burnt sienna with 1-finger khaki head. Nose is roasty charred black patent malt, mild cacao, choc malt, hops. Tastes of charred black malt, mild cacao, dry with some hops. Comes off as a hoppy black lager, and a watery one at that.
