3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
L: pours a dark cola brown with a tiny head that was gone quickly. S: a one-dimensional aroma of rich roasted malt, perhaps a hint of chocolate. T: starts off quite aqueous but that dark rich malt creeps in. Some sweetness.
F: low carbonation, light feel but medium-strength flavour. A malt bill more like a foreign stout, gentle hopping.
O: I remember this more fondly a year or so back, perhaps my palate now detects the lack of complexity. Decent cheap local stout though.

Pours a dark ruby red color with a short lived tan head. The aroma was of a light roasted malt with dark chocolate notes. The flavor was a light roasted malt taste. The body was rather thin with a chalky metallic aftertaste. Overall it was okay at best.

Pours a deep black, short but retaining head. Smell was all over the place, toast, earthy, coffee, deep and chocolatey. Taste is similar, more nutty and well bodied, some light carbonation and a good mouthfeel.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with a small beige head. Aroma is molasses, soy sauce, and roasted malts. Taste is sweet, but not at all cloying. Kind of burnt molasses aftertaste. Not a great stout, but it is what it is.
