2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
This is the worst stout I’ve ever tried, and I usually enjoy this style. I think its popularity is mostly due to folks like us trying to add a rating from another obscure country. (I admit to trying a boring lager only because it was from Kenya, but it wasn’t as bad as this). 11.2 oz bottle pours an opague dark brown/black with a small tan head but good lacing. Aroma is of sour milk, malts, caramel and artificial sweetener. Texture and ABV are too thin for a stout. Not much carbonation either. It got better as it warmed up, but I won’t try this one again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malty/gritty, chocolate and earthy in aroma. The flavor is sweet/sour with a bit of funk. The maltiness is decent but the off-flavor makes it not as good as it could be.

11.2 ounce bottle. Pours almost black with a small tan head. Aroma of malt, coffee and chocolate. Taste is chocolate, malt, coffee and cream. Thin and too sweet.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Very dark/black pour with a thin brown head. Aroma is like artificial sweetener. Thin palate, taste also seems contrived - slight fruit, slight sweetness.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Never heard of Malta, but a new rating from a new country.
Black pour with a mild sweet and roasted malt aroma. Flavor was thin, watery, some dark fruit, caramel and chocolate. Way too thin for a stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A pretty good stout. Poured a dark black with a tan head that dissapated quickly. Smelled like milk and a little bit of cocoa. Drank this out of a shaker

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours deep brown/black with a medium mocha head...decent lacing. Smells faintly of dark fruit...fig...hints at cocoa...smells a bit like cardboard. Flavor has hints of caramel and chocolate but is very bland. Mouthfeel is slightly watery with a roasty coffee finish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Blanchard’s, Allston 11.2oz ($3): Pours a darkish color with a quickly dissipating beige head. Aroma of sugar and stuff like that. Taste is a little on the thin side and so is the body. Mildly sweet and buttery. Not a horrible beer, but it is its own kind of thing and is worth trying.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
330mL. Pour is very strange- a deep caramel coffee pour with half and half real head and half just large, worthless bubbles. Dissipates quickly to a medley of soapy bubbles. No real head formation and no lace. Looks like opaque in the glass. Nose is strange- like sweet seedy strawberry along with volatile notes of seaweed and iodine. As it warms, characters of rotted vegetables and asparagus. Taste is watery and metallic- almost superlative metal taste like straight rusted metal and blood iron. Turns out to be colored artificially which is nasty. Very poor. Actively gross.
