Wonderful aromas of chocolate and roasted malt. Tastes are more of the same but not as pronounced as the aroma. Leaves some lacing. Medium bodied and a little creamy. I really liked this beer a lot, very nice.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark, dark, dark. Smell of roasted malt is quite prominent. On the tongue, this beer is immediately quite bitter mixed with coffee, evening out at a certain point but without any sweetness. Too carbonated for my liking.

Overall a decent stout. Favourite of the night to this point.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Pours a very dark brown body with an inch of churned, beige foam.
Smell: Dark malty accents smelling of carob, light chocolate, blackened toast, scorched cream and licorice.
Taste: Toasty, roasty in the fore with some slight carob, less-than-sweet chocolate and very minor licorice. Minimal dark fruitiness. A chary bitterness creeps in at the midpoint. Drying with a persistent dark maltiness which slowly lingers on the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel overall.
Overall: While it won’t knock your socks off with a myriad of complexities, it’s amply flavorful and an ease to drink at 5.5% ABV.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 0.33L bottle. Pour black with a frothy tan head that lingers. Aromas of chocolate, cream / lactose, roasted malt. Flavor is almost immediately to roasted malt bitterness with little sweetness. Some hints of anice and and coffee, with a subtle malt sweetness at the end. Finishes with a long, dry, bitter linger. Medium-light body with a thin mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, really not a very pleasant stout. Unidimensional roasted malt, and not much else.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nitro cask @ De Arendsnest. Aroma has toffee typical to English ales. Also some hay and hints of licorice. Flavour has English toffee, licorice and some ashy tones. Smooth and somewhat creamy palate. Feels slightly watery on some sips. Like a light version of Fuller’s London Porter.
