Bottle from sampler. Dark pour and medium head. Malty dark taste and medium heavy mouthfeel. Sweet aftertaste which bodes well for this. Good stout overall.

Alright, from the 2012 Summer Variety Pack - I’ll admit it... I’m biased due to the fact that I and my gf Nancy were sampling this after a fine Roller Derby game and it was accented by "Buffalo Trace Chocolates", which heightened the stout’s cocao-like taste. This is a fine, though very effervescent stout, and at an affordanle price... GO DUNDEE!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The bottle has no freshness date or abv% but there is a nice description of the beer on the back label.
Appearance: 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.
Smell: There are notes of roasted/toasted malt, caramel and black coffee.
Taste/Palate: 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.
Notes: This beers flavor reminds me a lot of Guinness Draught but with out the nitro/metallic edge and a little more body.

Bottle - pours thick creamy head, black - aroma of toasted malt, nut and hay , good caramel and coffee flavors... earthy, like dirt and leaves if you were to pour fermented sugar on them (lol) - enjoyable, but not fantastic hoppy aftertaste. A decent beer. I’d enjoy this with some cochon de lait.... and a slice of cheesecake from Copeland’s.

St. Mary’s Ga. - J P’s Spirit and Wines - 12 oz bottle. Dark black, motor oil looking pour with a thin, but long lasting khaki colored head. Aroma has some earthy, potting soil accents, a bit of black coffee. Solid stout flavor with some dark unsweetened chocolate, potting soil, day old black coffee. Mouthfeel has a nice bit of chalkiness to it, Rather impressed.
