3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours pitch black with slight brown edge and lingering foamy light beige head. Nose is a balance of roasted/chocolate malt and astringency. Flavor is smooth and creamy and surprisingly pleasing compared to the nose. Some chocolate pokes through, with an overall light feeling to it for a stout. Not Bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500mL bottle. Pours almost pitch black, with a tiny bit of red on the edges. Nice tan head. Sexy.
Nice malt aroma, very burnt. Coffee and caramel, a bit of fruit (raisin?).
Nice warm chocolaty roast flavour, a bit of coffee on the finish, a little smoke.
Nothing too intense here, making this one quite drinkable and unintimidating.
Goes well with a cigar too. But generally I like a bit more oomph in my Stouts.
