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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Suprisingly good stout from the stable of SAB. Looks like Guinness, but very different to Irish Stout.
Very sweet, and unrefined, but a good thirst quencher. A sour after taste with very subtle mochachino flavour! A fairly creamy beer, which when chilled glides down the throat!
Again the only stout brewed locally!

Some friends who just got back from South Africa brought me back a can of this. Expected reddish black body with roasted aroma and a very nice dark brown head. Which pretty much stayed through the whole slowly sipped glass. The mouthfeel was very silky, but only after you got through almost too much carbonation (for the style) for my liking. Nice roasted and chocolate flavours with a very unique hop kick at the end. A little thicker and less carbonated and this would be very good - as is, a nice surprise and an enjoyable gift.
