3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle. The beer poured a deep deep brown, nearly black body with a slight tan head that gave way to a little ring on the edge of the glass with some good lacing. There was a pleasing roasted malt aroma. The taste was a nice chocolately and roasted malt base with notes of coffee and a slight hop bitterness on the back. Medium body.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
.333->english pint: Pours a huge, rocky, off-white, lasting head that exhibits spare lacing atop a black body. Aroma of toasted molasses, perfume, and sweat. The body is medium, the texture of minerals and grit, and afinish of metal. The flavor’s duration is average and is moderately acidic, finishing with a mineral taste. This beer somewhat smooths out as you drink it.

330 mL bottle purchased at Moor and More in Plymouth. Poured a dark black color with a two finger foamy brown head. The aroma was roasted malt. The flavor was fairly astringent, but overall not terrible. I am glad to have tried this brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma has dark malts ranging from coffee to charcoal. Dry and very roasty flavour with a long and bitter hoppy finish. It’s wonderfully aggressive, but could do with some middle ground below the very dark roasted character.

bottle, pours brown with a small tan head. Aromas are full of dark malt with mild hop notes. Flavor is very malty with a burnt malt bitterness in the finish. Not a bad stout, but nothing really stands out.
