2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a deep black color with a dark aroma malt flavor. Taste is simple, easy drinking with notes of roasted hops. Clean tasting flavor that is simple. A good dark beer for an everyday drinker.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Widget can. Perfectly black with a dense light khaki head. A lightly roasted peanut and caramel nose. There is also a little bit of milk chocolate present. The body is thin and watery. This is like lightly roasted coffee mixed with a little bit of dark chocolate. The light finish has notes of bread crust. A decent thin stout that tried to be like Guinness and succeeded in being equally boring.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from 500ml bottle at home. Aroma is a bit metallic, maybe some malt in there. Appearance is a deep reddish-black with some fizzy head. Taste comes around with some nice malt, roasty with some mild coffee in there. Feel is OK, not creamy but solid. Overall a decent stout.

Nitro pour. Creamy head. Sweet aroma of roasted grain. Lingering sweetness with a little roast on the tongue. Raisins creep in as it warms up. Dry and very drinkable. Excellent mouth on this nitro pour.

500ml bottle at home. Pours jet black, no head. Roasted malts, burnt sugar aromas. Tastes light sweet, not a lot else. Thin, unchallenging. Ok.

500ml can (Drink, Tallinn)
Pure sugar puffs aroma. Black, tight head. Watery guinnessy keg stout. Dead palate, nitro carbonation. Slightly OK roast, just a hint of smokiness or maybe ashiness. Finish metallic, a bit of tobacco. Bland macro fizz, but with a dark twist. Doesn’t fool me. Sub-standard immitation of guinness,

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear, almost black colour with ruby reflexes. Big, thick beige head with nice lacing. Medium intensive aroma of chocolate (lack of roasted malts). Taste is mild, rather sweety (mainly chocolate flavor), finish is slightly bitter with some roasted malts and resin. Light body. Medium finish. Quite drinkable, but IMO too watery stout.
