Amazing looking off-white head over deep brown (caramel soda)stout. Aromas of cocoa and roasted malt. Smooth. Less oily than Guiness. Very interesting hop bite makes this beer stand out (without being over powering). Great with relaxing and chocolate snacks.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(5oo ml bottle) Pours a brown, faomy head and a opaque body. Nose of coffee, tinny, cocoa and smoked malt. Very smokey, bitter beginning with a lasting bitterness. Good!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Coffee, chocolate and smoke aromas. Deep brown, with the slightest red around the edges, plenty of lace. Smokey roast coffee flavour at the front, with an appreciated bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, well balanced, dry finish leaves me wanting more. A terrific example!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
An average example of the dry style. Carries a subtle roasted overtone on the palate as it is consumed. Not as outstanding as it's acclaim on the six-pack carrier describes.

Pours dark black. Subtle earthy aroma. Nice roasted flavor.. hints of chocolate with a smokey, somewhat bitter finish. I like it. One of my favorite 'easily obtainable' stouts.
