0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Dundee Stout insulted my mother and made inappropriate advances to my sister. I urge you not to welcome it into your home/glass/mouth/stomach. This beer canít even manage to look presentable - thereís little head and the body looks weak. (The label art was creepy, too.) Thereís a cloying cream aroma from the malt that made my stomach turn. I have to give some credit to the flavor for being different (Iím really reaching for something positive to say), but the balance is totally unrefined. It starts off being too sweet and ends with soy sauce umami flavor that seems out of place and overly strong. Donít get this stout. Just donít.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A- Sweet, cocoa, malty.
A- Black color, dark liquid, minimal tan head.
T- Cocoa, chocolate, malty, sweet.
P- Medium body, thin texture, high carbonation, sweet finish.
O- This was the oddest stout Iíve ever had. Then again, all Dundee beers defy normality and not in a good way. A strange sweetness swept over my palate and left me wondering what the hell I was drinking.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
It pours a very dark brown/black color with a 1 and a half inch tan collar of foam head. This head fades quickly to a ring of slick lace that just slides down the glass as I drink. There are notes of roasted/toasted malt, caramel and black coffee. The flavor has a just off dry toasted malt character with a touch of bitter coffee and mild hops. Its mild sweetness in the background is caramely. The finish is quick and dry, with a smooth and creamy lightly carbonated palate.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Part of the Seasonal Variety Pack. To undersized snifter, it pours a watery, murky dark brown with which a trim, off-white head half a finger in length stood. Tastes and smells of caramel apples, brown sugar, powdered cinnamon, and Lyleís golden syrup. I wanted a roasted characteristic to balance this out, but, alas, my wish fell on deaf ears. Thin mouthfeel; unappealing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Just doesnít fit into my idea of a good stout, although itís not bad overall. Itís just way too watery and malty sweet without enough of the roasty toasty flavors.
