3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark Black with a red tint and a creamy light tan head. Smells of light roast, chocolate, malt, coffee and some hints of dry hops. A thin body this has. Tastes sweet and malty, with chocolate, and coffee and a dry strong bitter smoky finish. Some chocolate lingers in the aftermath. Expected more malt, so just ok.

From a bottle, aroma is subdued, but a decent flavour, with a light smoke and hop finish. Decent supermarket beer.

Not much aroma. Color reminds me of coffee. Flavor is on the lighter side. More like a brown ale. Malty and easy to drink. Nice beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
New at Liquor Shed.
It pours a very dark brown with some reddish highlights, about a 1" head of off white foam. Pretty good with the lacing.
It smells roast, with some dark chocolate, a bit of a fruity note or 2, and a hint of anise.
The taste follows the nose except the fruitiness isn’t as noticeable.
Smooth mouth feel thanks to the medium body and lightish carbonation. Last minute thought, I get a very very light smoke taste but perhaps I am wrong about that.
Super smooth and yet very tasty. I am impressed.

chocolate, coffee, roasty, mahogany colour clear, tan foam, light sweetness, medium bitterness, full body, creamy, soft carbonation, bitter,
For a stout this is very nice but shouldn’t be really smelling of coffee. I like it though very smooth

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours translucent cola brown with a thick and rather persistent light tan head. Aroma has roast malt, earthy and treacle notes. Flavor has bold earthy, roast malt, nutty and treacle tones with a woody hop underpinning. Smooth, if not viscous, texture lets it gallop down the pipes, leaving a persistent if not strong tingle. No nightmares here, just good beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Something in between a porter and a stout, this beer has an unstable head, very dark ruby red colour (near black) and strongly roasted aroma of coffee, bitter chocolate, toasted bread, peppery hops and plums; taste is smoothly malty, sourish touch, dryish, with strong coffee-like roasted bitterness and long peppery hop bitterness. Complex, with plenty of personality.
