4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: Pours pitch black with a solid khaki head. Good retention with ruby highlights
S: Toffee, caramel, cocoa, big roasted notes, and burnt sugar - almost brown sugar
T: Burnt sugar again, bittersweet, dark fruits and berries
MF/O: Pretty viscous but not on the extreme end. A nice one, especially given the $1.20 price tag

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Could be one of the tastiest stouts out there. Look for a real thick dark pour, with a moderate light brown head. The taste is intensely rich in sweet malts reminiscent of mocha. It’s texture is quite smooth, but bubbly. I would take my lion stout anywhere. Even on a date.

A black pour with a brown head. Aroma is chocolate, malts and coffee. Taste is very sweet...liquorice, sugar, chocolate and some malts. Bit too sweet for me but nice.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle poured into a snifter glass. Deep, deep dark brown in color an had only a small thin brown head that quickly disappeared. Chocolate, fruit and alcohol aroma. The taste is excellent, with hints of chocolate, light and dark fruit and a very faint roasted malt. It has a very creamy feel on the palate. Nice stuff.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle poured to glass. Pours black with a rich 3 fingered tan head. Smells of burnt malt grains and mild coffee notes. Tastes strongly like burnt molasses and expresso mixed together. Creamy in the mouth feel even though it appears watery. Slight lacing on the glass. Would have given a 5 for appearance had the lacing been a little better.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle found at Auchan Kirchberg. Deep black colour, lasting head.
First taste is fruit like sweetnees, followed by coffee notes and a typical stout finish lasting nicely.
A good surprise.
