3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 355 ml. bottle stamped 15155BF53. The pour is a dark chestnut brown color with ruby hues and a short-lived off-white head that fizzles down to a ring. The aroma includes dark and caramel malts, brown sugar, molasses and a touch of baked chocolate. The body is thin. The taste has a roasted dark malt character with decent sweetness and a clean, dry finish. If you like Guinness Stout you will like this.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a black color with a tan head that faded quickly to a few spots of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt chocolate with trace of coffee in the background. Tatse of roasted malt, chocolate and a bit of coffee in the background. Decent stout bitterness and fairly dry finish with just a bit of lingering bitterness. Moderate body and a decent bit of stout grit. Not a bad stout, probably goes best as part of a "black & tan".

12oz bottle. Poured a brown color with a thin sized off white head. Chocolate, roast, grains, and some lighter coffee. I say lighter coffee but everything about this was lighter and somewhat watery.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Near black pour with thin khaki head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, dark bread. Taste is watered down coffee. This kind of reminds me of Guinness.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Duped! Not that I had a lot of respect for Bass, but LOL. Dark pour, moderate head, average at best lace/retention. Aroma is overall light but gives chocolate, lightly roasted, lightly floral. Light bodied, lightly bitter, watery.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured a quick foaming head of two fingers on a black body.
The aroma is roasted malt; a little thin but fine enough.
The taste is lacking depth. Some roasted malt, a touch of bitterness.
The texture is crisper with moderate carbonation.
The stout lacks depth and breadth. Too crisp a texture. Not satisfying in the least.
