(12oz bottle thanks to blutt59) espresso/ruby pour with few tan bubbles. Nose of sweet chocolate, raisin, chocolate chips and cocoa. Started out well, but it didn’t taste like it smells. Taste is highly metallic, cocoa, and raisins.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep brown with a small creamy light mocha head. Aroma is mostly chocolate with just a touch of roast. Super sweet, almost like milk chocolate candy bar and caramel. Flavor starts sweet and slightly promising but picks up some unpleasant stale candy and old sugary caramel notes that just don’t fit. Not nearly enough roast and complexity beyond chocolate. Mediumish body and a higher carbonation. Meh

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark pour with a tan head. Roasted malt aroma, a little bit of hops. Sweet and smoky body, starts out with a milky sweetness, followed by a nice roasty flavor. Body is a little light, not a great stout, but another decent beer at a good price from Dundee.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle thanks to blutt59. Poured a clear brown body with a ring of off-white head. Aroma is malty, toffee and an odd cardboard scent. Flavor is sweet (caramel/toffee) and very little hop presence at all. Thin mouthfeel. This does not seem very stouty to me.
