2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour is cola in color with a thick off-white head. Nose is bland, but a bit roasty. A little bit sour, maybe? Really watery...itís hard to really smell anything. The flavor is just as bad. Itís almost like drinking black water. Just a hint of roasted malt, a tinge of sourness, perhaps a light earthiness, but Iím really stretching for that one. Not sure what the appeal is here.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle... Pours nearly black with a small, flimsy, mushroom-colored head. Good creamy retention. The aroma offers light notes of dark chocolate and espresso, but is mainly just bland as I had to really dig my nose deep into the glass to pull out anything at all. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is mildly roasty and perfectly balanced, but for the most part, itís just bland, mundane and fairly lifeless. Finishes crisp and a tad roasty, but mostly just clean.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Dark brown, almost black with a small sized head. Blah ... muted roast and chocolate. Maybe I did it wrong - I see in the description to enjoy ice cold straight from the bottle ....

Deep brown- black pour. The nose is lightly sour and kind of dirty. A little bit of honey flavour and some dirty sort of flavour. Meh - pretty awful.

Several bottle samples at the LCBO on WIlson as I explained what the term and style was to the friendly rep they sent out. Its black without much head, or unfortunately much taste either. Itís not up to the style. Better than the stout they serve here.A bit thin and overcarbonated.
