3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours very dark brown wit a sticky tan head. Nose is robust and roasty with mild dark chocolate, molasses and the extremely unliked vegemite note. Taste is milky chocolate with earthiness and dry wood. Quite liquorice forward and less boozy than the nose alludes to. An ok quaffer type

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep brown, practically black in color with a light brown head. It looks nice… kudos on that. It smells lightly sweet with a touch of herbal hops and black patent malts or, although lightly dosed, just maybe some heavily roasted malts. In the mouth it’s a little bitter from the roasted malts and dry enough to prevent residual sugars from masking that bitterness. Still, though, it’s soft, smooth, and easy to drink. The roasted malts, although very bitter, are gentle and easy to stomach. Nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Heavy roasted barley, dry chocolate, coffee, and caramel on the nose. Just about black with a mostly fading beige head. Very dry, with flavors of earthy unmalted barley and char, very bitter. Medium-full bodied, chewy, and finishes with lingering roast and bitterness. A solid stout, chock full of roasted malts and balancing bitterness, seemingly Russian-styled for a proclaimed American stout, but damn tasty all the same.
