3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mild malty aroma, very thick and dark, creamy with strong roasted coffee and chocolate flavours. A strong flavoured beer well worth trying.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a moderate beige head, which lasts fairly well and leaves decent lacing. Dark chocolate, Vienna coffee and hazelnut make up the aroma. Mild spice hops up front give way to roasty malt and milk chocolate in the mid-palate. Bittersweet dark chocolate comes into the finish, leaving a cocoa aftertaste. This isnít the most complex stout Iíve had, but itís certainly not too bad either.

I always feel that Iím going against the grain when I donít like a beer. This ors have chocolate notes but there is a persistent and annoying bitterness that is carrying it. I know that you could expect both but these are out of balance. in my opinion.

500ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Smooth and silky in the mouth and possibly the blackest beer I have ever seen. Goes down a treat.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours very dark brown with a small, very firm beige head. Great retention and sticky lacing. Nose shows a heavy dose of hops. Lots of oats and sweet vanilla with typical powdered chocolate. Works well and in unison. Taste is very hoppy with sweet chocolate and vanilla, citrus underneath and light nutty tones. Balanced. In between a Black IPA and an Oatmeal Stout but works for me. Enjoyable beer

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not really a stout, more of a BIPA, but notwithstanding this a reasonably solid beer. Not quite to the same standard as the other liberty range, which is unfortunate. But one worth trying.
