3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Soft, nutty roast aroma with ale overtones. Good packaging, inky beer, an almost purple tan head. Dry, lightly acidic roast flavor, slight nuttiness. Medium-light body, frothy mouthfeel. Sessionable, but it won’t put hair on your chest. ABC, Betton.

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.

Poor is a inky black with a small tan head. Aroma is actually a pretty decent roast with an ever so slight coffee. Flavor is much weaker. A very minor roast with some dirty malt and a bit of sourness. Probably should not get the low rating it has. Just slightly above par b/c of the nice aroma it gave off.

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.

Nearly black, red backlights with a thick, greyish, tan head.
Scent is cola, chocolate....light smoke.
Taste is fairly simple fare.....dark chocolate over coffee and cola.
Watery and light, but not bad.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Thin, watery mouthfeel. Weak in aroma and flavor. Mainly light roastiness. Weak finish, almost no hops. Deep black color, no head. Maybe this beer SHOULD be on nitro. Do yourself a favor and make a Black and Tan with this, as it may be the only way to enjoy it.

Bottle.Chocolate and light coffee aroma. Black with a moderate tan head. Watery chocolate, barley malt, and roasty flavor. Light side of medium body, lively carbonation. Rather easy drinking.

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.

On tap at MacGregor’s. I came her today for the Stone W00t Stout that was listed on their website and ended up with this. Disapointment! It looked like a Guinness nitro pour. Light stout taste with small amount of chocolate and roast. It was ok.

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.
