3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is dark and thin, with a short-lived tan cap. Nose is roasted grain, faint chocolate/coffee, but weirdly there’s a lot of fruit - notably I get blueberry, and I also get a lot of pale lager-type grain, which is weird on both counts. Taste-wise it’s more like a black lager/schwarzbier than a stout. It’s a touch creamy, but also noticeably watery, with a roasted grain bitterness on the finish. Overall decent but kinda blah.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mm bottle LCBO: opaque black/brown with thin beige had. Prominent chocolate and malt the nose. Flavours of roasted malt, chocolate panettone, and some hops. Typical stout smoothness without that signature long finish. A little thin on the end. Quite a tasty treat, nevertheless.
