4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into a pint glass; black with a thick inch of tan head.
Smells like chocolate, roasted malt and more chocolate. Great balance.
On the tongue: bitter chocolate, toasted malt, grippingly bitter with a caramel aftertaste.
Soft and creamy body with light carbonation... quite perfect.
Overall a simply amazing drink. Drinks like milk, only better for you.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Black color with brownish head. Mild roasted malt aroma. Round and soft mouthfeel; good roasted malt flavor, delicate, not burnt or ashy, with some dark chocolate; it has some residual sweetness, with traces of lactose; correct bitterness.
Sweetish stout. Not bad.
