2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tasted 23/05/2005. 340ml bottle from Woolworths, Kilbirnie.
Inky black appearance with a touch of read. Crusty, yellow tinted, dark tan head that dissapears but is very lacey. Mild aroma that just hints of toasted grains, leaning a little towards burnt for my liking. Flavour is a mix of bittersweet malts with some milky lactose sweetness showing through. Some grain astringency. Mouthfeel is a bit wimpy and overly carbonated, which detracts significantly from what might be an ok flavour. Not smooth enough to make the average grade.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black with dark brown cover and not bad lacing. Aroma has a considerable amount of diacetyl butterscotch plus chocolate and sweet toffee malt. The sweetness doesn’t end at the aroma, but it’s not overpowering in the flavour which also contains obvious contributions from chocolate malt and some nondescript fruit notes. Very low bitterness. Medium body and smooth from sweetness with a clean finish. Nice.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Strong butterscotch diacetyl in the sweet, lactic aroma that only hints at roasted malts. Opaque, dark brown body with amber-brown highlights is topped by a decent tan head that recedes to cover with some nice lacing. Sweet, milky flavour has light vegetal tones and only a hint of roastiness in the finish. Medium body with moderate carbonation and smooth texture. Bottle sampled with asheft and Pitpit at the MontreAlers April meeting.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A pitch black beer with a small brown head. The aroma is weird, sour, but sweet with notes of caramel and chocolate, but also some spice I can’t put a name on. The flavor is of milk and chocolate and the mouthfeel is quite dry.

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Stout beer, black in color, good head, VERY good aroma. Glides down your throat like guinness, but is very differnt taste wise. Despite all the good things about this beer, i would never buy one again. Horrible aftertaste, and lingering stench if you get it on your hands.
