3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2013 Aroma: Chocolate, creamy.
Palate: Mid-weight, creamy.
Flavor: Bitter chocolate, creamy. A long finish--chocolate and medium-bitter coffee.
Comments: A previous time that I had this on draft I gave it a 28 (pear, burnt coffee and unsweetened bitter chocolate--thin body). Clearly the body was better on this one and no pear flavor.

Think maybe I got a bottle thatís starting to turn. Even so, I donít pick up much in the way of a dry stout in there. Poured with a giant, light brown, foamy, frothy, head and a little lace. Color is a very dark, almost opaque black brown. Aroma is fruity, a bit tart, a bit roasty malt. Flavor is like nose but the tartness comes out more, roasty malt and fruit. Very carbonated and ok body. Tartness stands out in the finisih. Canít finish the bottle.

(500ml bottle thanks to blutt59) near black with a lasting light tan head. Nose of fudge, cream and dark chocolate. Taste of watery chocolate, cocoa with a very dry finish. This is lacking on flavor a bit and some nuts are in the finish as well.

(500ml bottle, courtesy of blutt59) Pours a dark brown body with a fizzy grayish tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, baking cocoa, toffee, and sour dough. Flavor of roasted malt, chocolate, grass, dough, subtle anise star, and earth. Everything blends well, yet is still kind of dull overall.

Bottle. Pours a black body with a coffee tan head. Sweet irsh whiskey like tones, sweet lactose, and a light fruit sweetness. Dry, brandy and apple brandy like funkiness, reminds me of a tart stout, not sure if the was the intention, the fruit esters, or an infection but its not bad. A quickly drying fruit latent malt tone. Alright.
