3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep dark color from the scale between red and brown. Small and nice beige head. The aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, like the flavour. The taste is dry, tons of roasted malt, some plain chocolate in the mouthfeel. Good and long finish about the roasted grains, good beer

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
aroma of rosted malt, a bit sweet with some chocolate tones. the head is thick beige, but far from the nitro draught version. color is opaque black.
flavor is of roasted and pale malts and dark bread, and then at the back of the tongue very hoppy bitter, and ends long and dry.
medium body, soft carbonation (very well balanced with all of the other components),

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Completely black in appearance with a large tan head. This beer only hints towards anything olfactory but what is there is somewhat smokey. The flavour is dry and of roasted malts with a fairly hoppy finish. It may not be the best brew available but you can’t go wrong with it. A trustworthy stout.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.33L bottle, 5%. Big dense light brown head that seems to last forever. Dark brown colour with some red streaks. Taste is quite muted, a little roasted coffe and some oxidation, but not much more. Unpleasant bitterness that evolves to an astringant finish. A graet dissapointment, i truely hope the draught version is much better.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours a deep black with a beige head. Aromas of bannana, a metalic astringent note and some roast grain. On the palate the bannana dominates along with some oxidative character, very little malt shows through, alittle astringency. Thankfully there is no nitro in this, however the flavours that are left and not very pleasent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, from Hamburg. 4.1 %. Pours pitch-black with soft brown edges. HEad is quite small for a Guinness - probably because of the way I poured it (too slow). Aroma is mild, but quite roasted. Low carbonation, but more than the draft version. Quite dry flavour balanced with some degree of roasted malts. Not as great as the draft, I’m afraid.
