3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from Wegmans, West Seneca, NY. An opaque black pour with a translucent beige head; aroma of well-roasted malts; despite the cola like appearance, the taste is quite grown-up with some initial sweetness, before a lengthy dry espresso taste; with a proniounced bitterness to finish. A passable stout.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a small beige head, which fades rapidly and does not leave much lacing. Savoury, nutty notes mix with mild herbal hops and a touch of black coffee to create the aroma. Mild herbal and citrus hops up front give way to nutty and biscuit malt in the mid-palate. Black coffee and more herbal hops come into the finish. A decent dry stout, if nothing astounding.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2014 small frothy light brown head. fair lacing. fully diminishing. flat average black body. aroma: heavy malty, caramel, milk chocolate. if: light sweet. ff: light sweet very light bitter; average duration. palate:light medium body, watery texture, medium carbonation, metallic finish. Dulçor caramelado lembra coca e é metalizado. Leve lembrança de café. Pior brooklyn disparado. Menos doce que uma stout normal, uma semelhança com o que se esperava de uma dry stout. Deixa até os dentes rançosos, como a coca-cola. 4 s
