Bottle to glass. Light black pour, average head. Aroma of vanilla, cinnamon and sweet roasted almost smoky malts. Some yeast notes present as well. Toasty. Taste is slight brown sugar with chocolate, vanilla and toast. Smooth. Unique flavor profile. Smooth, but not thick on the palate. Great stout in a neat category.

Bottle, Brew Dog.com. Consumed on my 40th birthday. Black pour with an attractive tan head. Roasted malt, choc and coffee notes in the beak. Similar taste, full and well rounded with some tidy hop presence. Subdued alco presence. Excellent stout, can’t fault it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Champanes,
this beer had a black-brown pour and provided a creamy one to two finger chocolate shake head, it receded to a thick ring that clung to the sides of the glass, this drink was too dark to see the carbonation but I could see some bubbles flowing up the sides of the glass when placed next to a lamp, it left nice rings and spots of lacing on the glass,
it had aromas of nice roasted malt, nice coffee notes, faint chocolate, malt and faint dark fruit with some sweetness,
there were flavors of roasted malt, coffee, and faint molasses,
the finish had some malt bitterness with roasted malt following, the bitterness lingered along on the palate,
as this beer warmed up there was some malt astringency that appeared, not a big deal but noticeable,
the mouth feel was medium or so and it had average to lively carbonation, it felt creamy on the tongue,
this drink had a nice roasted malt nose and flavor, it may have been a little over carbonated but I enjoyed this beer.

Pours a nice thick black with little head. Strong coffee and malt flavor like most double stouts. Very good, but not great.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice and rather unique stout. Pours a dark black with a creamy beige head on top. The nose is earthy and fruity with a nice solid roasted and chocolate malt. A bit sweet mid palate with a full bodied roast coming through that includes hints of vanilla, chocolate and espresso beans. Mildly fruity and bitter on the finish. Overall a well balanced easy to sip on strong stout.
