2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells like olives. Pours really dark like when you wait a year to change the oil in your car. Dark tan head rises and falls quickly. Medium body isn't as thick as the color suggests. Starts malty with fruity/acidic but not sweet, finishes with a medium burnt coffee, and... butter? MUCH better warmed almost to room temperature so let it sit out of the fridge for 10-20 minutes before opening. A good example of a stout but not as strong as many. A great beer if you want to impress your friends with how dark you beer is while still not accidently getting hair on your chest.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pour cloudy nearly black with small but stable light tan head. Dark aroma of coffee, malt and caramel with some subtle roasty notes. Bitter, roasty flavour, complemented by sweetish notes of caramel malt and touches of coffee. Roasty and bitter aftertaste with notes of yeast. Decent, albeit just medium-bodied.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Bready and dusty aroma, smells a lot like a milk stout. Almost black colour, seems clear. Big stable creamy light brown head. The flavour is bready, slightly vinous, sweetish. Not a dry stout in my book, but perhaps not sweet enough to be a milk stout, either.
