3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Appellation Wines, Comely Bank. Pours very dark brown with a big tan head, which goes quite quickly. In fact, the carbonation dissipates very fast. Chocolate, liquorice, smoke notes. No chilli heat on the taste, which is a good thing, but otherwise the beer Iíve been least impressed with from this brewery.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml can.
Pours a pitch black colour with a dark beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, strong smoked peppers, leather and lavender. Flavour of strong roasted malts, cherries, spices, smoked peppers, coffee, chocolate, mellow caramel sweetness and bitterness. Medium bodied, a bit thin mouthfeel and a very rich, dry, warming, malty and mellow finish. What a great complex stout without being overwhelming.

Tell me in a sentence, who you are?
Nobody, Iím nobody. Iím a tramp, a bum, a hobo. Iím a boxcar and a jug of wine - and a straight razor if you get too close to me

Draft at sb. Pours black with a loose creamy dark tan head. Mild sweet nose, mostly sweet milk chocolate. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Sweet smoky peppers show through the chocolate, cinnamon is dialed back. Interesting at a basic level, and easy to drink.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is black.
Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate / cocoa powder, caramel, roasted grain/coffee), with notes of vanilla, smoke/char/ash, celery.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
A bit clumsy and cluttered, but ok. The spicing is fairly mild; this is a stout/porter first and foremost, thankfully...was worried this was going to be overly vegetal or cinnamon-like.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
can:   Nearly black, thin sudsy beige head, little lacing.   Sweet roasted malt nose, some chocolate, perhaps even a little bit of pepper.   Sweet roastiness first, sweet pepper second, a touch of cinnamon last.
This is tasty!   Brings me back a little to when I had Morning Brunch, except that was twice the beer this is (sorry Maui).   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Roasty, chocolaty, with some minor pepper and even more minor
cinnamon on the finish.   I bet this on Nitro would be fun!
