3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Moderate malt notes of grain and nutty, light to moderate cooked orange for the hops, light dough and meat for the yeast, with raisin, sweet red wine and toffee in the background. Head is small to average in size, frothy, light tan with some slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is dark brown. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately acidic and only faintly bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, slick with a soft carbonation and a lightly alcoholic finish. A nice blend of scents and tastes in this unique Sweet Stout, and warming improves both greatly.

750 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits (Halifax). Pours a murky orangey dark brown with fluffy tan head. Aroma is sweet light and dark fruit, caramel and cola.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
16.9oz bottle. Unfiltered brown-black body, glass rimming oily beige head. Certainly can see how someone could mistake it for a Belgian Dubbel, but this is intended as and labeled a Stout. Mellow mouthfeel, very yeasty, creamy. Nice balance between the sugary sweetness and steady fruity yeast undertones. Almost has a lactic touch, reminiscent of a Caribbean Stout, were a Belgian yeast strain pitched. Unique, well done.
