Bottle. Deep black body with a ring of tanned head. Aroma of raisins, sweet red plums, green leafy pine, and faint chocolate. Flavour and mouthfeel are quite thin - yeasty chocolate is mildly subdued, along with sweet roast and toffee.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Roasted malts evoke coffee and cocoa-like chocolate in the biscuity aroma with mild underlying grape-like fruity esters. Opaque black body is topped by a decent, though fizzy, tan head that recedes rapidly to a thin partial cover and ring and completely shortly thereafter. Grapes are apparent in the flavour but pleasantly married to a biscuity malt character and plenty of roasted malts and powdery chocolate. Sweetness becomes cloying after a while. Medium body with shortlived carbonation that leaves the body feeling rather flat. While perhaps not great, this is at least drinkable. American pint glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle (Peluso, Jan-05).

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Black opaque body with a diminishing brown bubbly head. Nice malkty aroma with roasty and coffeeish notes. Malty/hoppy taste that lacks complexity. It ends with a short bitter/roasty finish. This has more to do with dark lagers than stouts. Anyway, this is the best product I’ve been tasting from from that brewer.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Some stout taste held back. Liek licorice, agree with Goldenrak that’s its better classified as a shwartzbeer. A home brew club try. Good water. Finishable.Overcarbonated.Thin, watery, fizzy,
