This poured almost black with a big lgiht tan head. Aroma was pretty sweet and chocolatey for a stout. Flavor was silky and smooth chocolate, but a bit too sweet for me, not much roastyness to it at all.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Near black in colour with a thin tan head, light lacing. The aroma is fairly sweet, some milk chocolate, toffee, roasted coffee, burnt malts with some dark fruits. The flavour is quite roasty, mildly sweet, good amount of roasted coffee, some dark chocolate with just a bit of alcohol. Roasty mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, roasty with some milk chocolate sweetness.
Very nice. Good roast and an excellent mouthfeel. Quite enjoyable.
650ml bottle obtained in a trade with miketd, thanks Mike.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared by Dak. Black and opaque with tight tan head. Metallic aroma is fully of lead. The flavors are similarly lead-laden and paltry. Unfortunately, not liking it.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Somewhat dull and flat. Very dark brown colour. Thereís sort of a burnt toffee note to this, but also some inappropriate phenols. Itís extra roasty and astringent with a hint of soy sauce. Itís big, but has little going for it. No real complexity, and the flavours and aromas do not correspond with any foreign stout Iíve ever had.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Black pour with a small tan head. Aroma is roasty as hell with some smoke, chocolate and an odd chemical note. Flavor is very thin, watery and way over roasted. This beer fails to come together. Overrated by far.
