Pour is a black with a smal tan head, Aroma is roasted malts with some lingering chocolate in the backround. Flavor is some sour dark fruit with a earthy malt. This is kinda wierd and i donít think I need another.

Bottle at Erato. Typical pour for a stout with a bit more red than most. Decent sized tan head. This beer is all about anise. Aroma and flavor both offer lots of it. Some dark fruit in the flavor, roasted notes. Thin at times but medium bodied at others.

Iím a big lover of stouts but nothing really stands out about this particular one. It has a malty flavor but I would consider it to be one dimensional.

Almost black color, with some light shining through. Modest aroma. Taste is toasted malt. Little hops!

12-oz. Pours jet black with a fairly dense but rather sudsy and pocked tan head. Loose strings of tan lace on the walls of the glass. Falls away pretty quickly. Mild chocolatey nose. Creamy medium body, soft carb. Chocolate and roast with a bit of prune on the mid-palate. Mild sweet pruney chocolate finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a decent tan head. Aroma of dark lightly burnt malt with something lightly herbal. Medium body with rather creamy carbonation. Flavor is dark, almost with a touch of tar. A good straight forward stout. Not a trace of heat. Good drink.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a dark brown color with small amount of bubbly tan head. Aroma is a bit sweet and molasesy with slight dark fruit and a tad bit of roastiness. Flavor seems a bit watery to me. Light and sweet, slight roastiness and fruit flavor. Could not believe when I saw this was 8%abv. Overall, a bit weak flavor wise Could use some more malt base.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Initially metallic aroma, once the largish bubbles left quickly, aroma was more dry and reminded me of cat litter. Dark black, thinner in body than I imagined, great lacing from the lightly tan head. Little metallic taste, dark light bodied roast, goes back to a bit of a rusty note in the finish. The beer is mostly good and the faults mentioned are peripheral.

Beer tasting at wine world. For the most part this is ok. A tad thin in taste. There are much better stoudts out there.
