2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep ruby brown, no head at all. Anise and chocolate aroma has a minty edge to it, aftereight reminiscent as well as herbal, maple and lactic undertones. Darkish malts are sweet and caramelised on the palate, mint is still a factor while the roastiness reminds of coffee. Not quite as balanced as most, it feels like a low weight, light carbonation, fairly light body, fading flavours.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
5/11/10. 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The pour is black with reds when held to the light with a fizzy tan head that fades to nothing immediately, no lacing. The aroma is harsh alcohol with some dark fruits lingering in there - it smells almost like a cheap port or old chocolate wine. The taste is immediately metallic followed by sour roasted malts, chocolate, and old raisins. Not very good.
