3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep black stout with reddish cherry hues, and a thick collapsing moka head. Aroma of vanilla and Nestle Quick. Sweet chocolate with notes of raisins, licorice and some alcohol in finish and light bitterness. Body is thin and short. Not as intense as Dragon but still a good export stout. Thanks Presario.

Very nice aroma but the varnish flavor doesn’t do it for me. So I had problems giving it a 6 but still did because it looked good and didn’t taste bad overall.

Black coloured, dark brown head. Roasted malts in aroma. Very sweet flavour, lots of liquorice. Alcohol is well hidden, but there’s not a lot of complexity.

Oh, SOY can you see...as in soy sauce. There is a nice slickness on the palate, but the rest is vinegar, soy and coffee. I can see how others like it, as it isn’t run of the mill, and complex enough...just doesn’t taste to my liking.

Bottle at Yeoman’s Road Pub in Tampa. Dry coffee overtones with very muted choclate sweetness. minimal bitterness. Quaffs well. Could drink many of them. I’d love to get a hold of some on tap and see if it improves. Could be great on tap.

Flat looking stout with a strong coffee aroma and very dry flavour with little roastiness. Overall a plain stout.

Black body with brown head. Aroma is medium sweet, chococoffee, some raisin. Taste is sweet, coffee, chocolate roasty, some raisin, faint anise. No bitterness, even coffee-based. Medium body with decent richness. All told, a solid stout that holds its own.

Nearly opaque with a small tan head and very good lace. The aroma hints of tart and sweet fruits (apple, current, and berry), roasted malts, caramel, slight mocha, coffee, aromatic hops, and zesty yeast esters. The taste starts bittersweet with good hops background leading into a mocha flavor. Undertones of coffee, plums and earthiness. The finish is almost woody and bitter. The mouthfeel is a bit thin, lively and refreshing. A solid easy going stout, quaffable. Try one. Thanks MattA.
