4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the Tramway. Great stout, very well balanced. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, and caramel. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Black, with frothy head.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Mash, Henley Brook.
Translucent cola body with a tight, creamy tannish pad atop that holds on and weaves a fine lace. Pleasant, roasted coffee bean and Dutch cocoa nose with an ever-present length of smoke, dried spice and soft vanilla. Light bodied but considerably creamy on the palate. A touch of diacetyl shows in the mochaccino finish. Dark chocolate and bitter coffee. Good dark malt base; a little slick but forgivable with a softly smoky, softly peppery linger. Drinks well!!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap from mane liquor bottle shop. Pours black with a one finger tan head. Aroma is coffee, some chocolate with maybe some vanilla. Taste is up front with the coffee, a nice espresso taste. With hints of coffee at the end. Quite an easy drinking stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Mane Liquor. The coffee beans in this show a very nice nutty character that other coffee stouts don’t seem to have. Probably the coffee beans they used I suppose. Either way, it’s nice stuff and flows extremely easy. Lots of flavour for a 4.3% brew. Good job

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Has the usual combination of coffee and chocolate through use of tasty roasted malts only with this stout its all just a little to weak and watery for me. Enjoyable but miss the rich flavors I usually enjoy with a stout.

Black body, coffee in the aroma with the same coming through in the taste as well as some cocoa notes. Smooth and very drinkable.
