3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown, some tan head. Looks great. Aroma is strong roasted barley, some smoky notes. Flavor is mostly malt, very roasty, very full tasting. I found the palate to be very lively for a stout, it makes the body seem thinner than it actually is. Overall a very drinkable stout.

Very nice aroma. Chocolate, coffee, dried fruits, chocolate liquor. RIS-like. A tiny bit of vanilla in the background. Pours black with pretty big tan-coloured head leaving a nice lacing. Taste is bittersweet. All aromas are present in the flavour. beer leaves a pleasant aftertaste. Awesome beer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
It's about what you would expect. Not really creamy. Kind of thin but also fairly alcoholic. A bit too carbonated for my liking.

5 year old bottle. Almost opaque dark brown beer, few tan bubbles not forming a head. Palate is light and has fine minerally carbonation. Mild and slightly thin dark malts, just a very light touch of roast. Light touches of tangy dark chocolate and dark fruits. Light dry finish. Surprisingly no oxidisation.
