33 cl bottle @ Timo A. Thanks rosenbergh!
Pours dark mahogany red color with a small head. Dry malty aroma, molasses, coffee and toasted malts, some dark fruits too. Dry oaty with rye and malts on the flavor, spices and some hops. Not very pleasant, a bit watery even.

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.

grimreaperguru (258) - santee, California, USA - OCT 21, 2015
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.

ffbot (170) - Oakland, California, USA - AUG 18, 2015
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.

mansquito (4649) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 22, 2015
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.
