1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled, thanks Bov! Very dark with rich creamy head. Lightly vinous nose, but then nothing. No roastines or coffee like you’d expect in a stout, nor malt flavour or bitterness. Not really bad, but very empty.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[At Fete de la Biere 2004, Lausanne] An opaque black beer with a fine light brown head. The aroma is of chocolate and coffee. The flavor is of chocolate, coffee, and roasted bread before a dry end sets in. A great flavor. The hops used in this one is Nothern Brewer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark color, brownish head, creamy but not persistent. Some roasted malt aroma, pretty strong yeast, grains, hay. Dry, rather pleasant roasted malt, but too strong yeast flavor. Palate in the line with the rest.
The only one that I save from these homebrewers.
