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.

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.

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.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2011 Pours a dark brown with a bubbly red-brown head. Aroma is some caramel notes, not much else. Taste is a touch bitter, creamy, sweet; also a bit coppery but I suspect that has more to do with the bottling/handling than the brewing. It’s not great tasting but it goes down smooth. Not one I would recommend.
