2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. This stout is for my taste weak. The aroma of dark chocolate is promising. However the taste is low bodied. Weak dark chocolate taste, roasted malt. Probably due to the only 4.8% abv. The finish has a strong presence of alcohol. Drinkable but I prefer imperial stouts such as BrewDogís Riptide. I have not had a Guiness in a very long time. I need to re-visit it.

Nice longlasting head. Aroma is slightly roasted and sweet, dark malts, unripe banana, coffee, cocoa, grass, some hops and cardboard. Taste is roasted dark malts, sour coffee, cardboard, wood, cocoa, grass, unripe banana, hay, dark sugar. Stoft (too soft) carbonation, medium bitterness. Easy drinking, but not a favorite.

Bottle, Black with a small head. Dry with some maltiness. An excellent example of how a bottle conditioned beer should be bottled. A good but not overstated example of this style.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.5l bottle. Itís pretty deep dark brown this, almost black in the glass and it has a medium sized quickly islandy bubbly brown top. Some roasted tones in the aroma, but itís more fruity and watery than roasted really. Some chocolate paper also, and a hint of thin coffee. Not to bad for a light ale. Itís surprisingly tasty as well, and they are definitely not lying to much with the description "smooth and full bodied". Has to be the best mouthfeel Iíve had on a beer within this ABV category. Heavy roasted, almost burned at times flavors, some cardboard, lots of cold coffee, a good hoppy sting and malty biscuits. Also some coffee acidity in the finish. Lots of flavor in this. Did not expect it, but it undoubtedly is. 25.03.2013
0.5l bottle. This is a deep dark brown one with a medium sized light broen and bubbly lacing head. On the nose itís mild chocolaty, some traces of cold coffee, a malty chocolaty sweetness, traces of something light fruity. It smells absolutely approved for a low strength stout. Iím surprised how much mouthfeel this thing has. Feels oily and surprisingly thick and full-bodied in the mouth, and the carbonation is soft. More chocolate in the taste. Cold coffee is definitely also present in this, and it has a milky sweetness. Some lactose perhaps? A really good lightweight stout. 13.04.2013
