3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black pour with frothy head. Roasted aroma. Roasted malt flavor with a velvety feel. This was in my beer fridge for a while before I tried, because I just didn’t think it would be that good. I was wrong, it is very good.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Found this one bottled in South Elgin, Illinois. Coal black pour with a nice, nutty nose, roasted almonds and chocolate throughout, taste petered out late. Not terrible.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2 oz bottle from LeopoldStotch, I believe. Dark as night, but pours rather watery. Faint aroma of malt and coffee. Mouthfeel is watery. Lots of lacing, which I found kind of surprising. Nice bitter hop flavor that lingers. Malty, with some coffee flavors going on as well. Pretty good stuff. Much better than I thought it would be.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I’ve had this draught notorious times at Gallow’s Bird, Espoo, but this rating is from a bottle. The beer is dark-dark brown with a thick, light-brown head which lasts quite long. My nail broke while cutting potato. The aroma is quite sweet, wonderfully chalked smoke with some berries (elder?) and cream. The taste is very good, smoke and milk with burned malt and a very balanced hoppy note on the aftertaste. Smooth, although not to foamy on the palate.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on 11/29/2006 at the November meeting of the Junedale Beer Klub. Brought by Tman...
Black with a creamy tan head. Lots of roast/char character in the flavor and dark bitter chocolate. Has a very dry finish with a moderate level of bitterness. Thin to medium body. Actually tasted a bit better than the Guinness Extra Stout that was sampled earlier during this tasting meeting!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark brown with light brown diminishing head. Aroma offers burnt malt, tar and bitter chocolate. Chocolate and hops in the flavor. Nice long finish with soothing bitterness. Well made stout, which seems to lack some alcohol to balance the chocolate though.
