3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml Bottle: Pours near jet black, very nice fluffy tan head that faded quite a bit quickly, but leaves behind a nice layer of wispy head to enjoy. As promised the aroma provides strong espresso grounds alongside roasted malts and toffee. It’s pleasant. This is strong in espresso, dry, very roasty, slightly watery and quite smooth to drink. Very little sweetness to be found in the sip, but it’s a unique and enjoyable.

Dark brown. Quite rich coffee nose. Lighter body, some thicker sweet malts, brown sugar but then a thin coffeeish finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared. Thanks Shuichi! Big and bold espresso and roasted coffee notes up front and dominate throughout, but a bit of dark chocolate as it warms. Light body and easy drinking, really tastes like a coffee at room temperature and the mouthfeel is really nice. Finish is roasty but clean. Amazing for 4.2 percent.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an almost black colour with a mocha head, good retention and some creamy lacing. Roasted malt aromas with some nice coffee. The flavours shows more the coffee over the roasted malts with hints of chocolate. Seems watered-down, because of the low alcohol content, but overall, a nice coffee stout.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,5l bottle at home courtesy of Cuso, big thanks. No obvious BB date. black color, small coffee-colored head. smells of coffee, bitter herbs, quite roasty, some bitter chocolate, light licorice, hints of vanilla. nice smell. light to medium body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of licorice, vanilla, light roast, some bitter herbs, coffee grounds, hints of chocolate, light fruit notes. finishes rather watery towards the finish, with some roast and notes of bitter herbs, some licorice and light vanilla notes. decent one, not a fan of vanilla so gets a bit of a penalty for that, but overall enjoyable, finish is a bit watery though. plus points for the low ABV.

Bottle. Nice coffee aroma, sweet malts. Hint of vanilla and cola with a smidge of hops. Quite thin and highly carbonated. Decent enough though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Countrywise Upton. Think I like it but a bit odd! Plenty of coffee flavour and aroma. Not much else. DeScription is "black beer" not stout?!
Definitely a stout though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Lorna. It pours near black with a small beige head. The nose is rich roast, bitter - sweet, espresso coffee, cacao nibs and burnt treacle. The taste is smooth, bitter, rich roast, coffee, touch of cracked black pepper, touch of acidity and dark chocolate with a dry finish. Light -medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Perhaps a touch thin, but it is a respectable coffee stout nonetheless.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @The Pond, Leith. Pours almost black but with a red tinge, tan head. Nose is coffee, nutty slight chocolate but overwhelmingly coffee. Taste is very much the same, my only problem with it is that its just one coffee taste, needs more depth, nice enough.
