3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Very dark brown, average and mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate to full, malty and sugary sweetish aroma, light - some caramel and light berry fruitiness and faint roasted malt, light coffee. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, light caramel and faint roasted malt, light coffee, faint hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, light berry fruitiness, light caramel and roasted malt with light coffee faint hoppness and alcohol. Way too sweet stout for me - could really use some bitterness.

Black with big fluffy beige head. Roasted malt aroma, notes of cocoa and syrup. Bittersweet flavour, roasted malt, syrup, sourish and burnt notes. Aftertaste has some kind of cleaning product. Weird.

330ml bottle (tasting @tiong’s, thanks). Very dark brown color. Small size, bubbly brown head, stays. Looks much like coke. Sweet, caramel, berries and pepsi in aroma. Caramel, roast, coffee, berries in taste. Sweet caramel and some roast in aftertaste. Fizzy carbonation. Feels rough in mouth. No thanks.

330ml bottle - thanks mjs and the posse at tiongs!
Worrying sweet childrens fake berry sweeties aroma. Taste is very rich and berry-ey, sweet, malty, and with pleasant bitterness, a bit metallic. Feels old and oxidised. Slightly messy, but once you’re past the sweet hump of the aroma, it’s drinkable.

Pours pitch black with a small white head. Aroma has hints of roasty malts, berries, blackcurrant, hints of earthiness. Taste is earthy, slightly roasty with hints of berries. Finish is smooth, slightly sweet and roasty with hints of blackcurrant. A bit weird.
