Bottled - Chris O shindig 2007 - A black beer with a smoky roasty fishy aroma with notes of licquorice. The taste is good with roasty and smoky notes. I remember criticising their first two beers. This is a huge improvement.

A Mes rate:
50cl bottle at Chris O’s Shindig. Looks as a decent stout should, black and tan. Head died rather quickly however. Sweet malty aroma with dark chocolate, wood smoke and hints of the alcohol. Flavour is similar but not quite so pleasing. Slight buttery note that it just about gets away with. Almost great but not quite.

Small dark brown head disappears immediately. Opaque black body. Sweetish earthy licorice aroma. Deep, dense licorice and chocolate taste, sweetish, with notes of wild berries. Very harmonic. Soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dry, burnt chocolate aftertaste with acidic notes. Some alcohol heat. Very nice! Drinkable and interesting. (0.5l bottle.)

500. Thanks, Maria! Pours deep dark opaque black with a thick, moussy, pudding-like head. Gorgeous sheets of irregular lace down the sides of the glass. Very sweet chocolatey nose. Other than that, pretty mild. Nice medium body with soft carb and moderate flavors--well-balanced attack. Roasty, very slightly licorice-y, chocolatey mid-palate. Very nice stuff. I love getting the chance to try stuff like this from the other side of the planet, because I know if this were widely available locally I’d drink the hell out of it. It’s a very well-made little stout, and I’m thankful I got to try it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. A pitch black beer with next to no head only a rim of brown head next to the glass. The aroma is sweet and very roasted combined with notes of soy sauce, alcohol, wood, and dark bitter chocolate. The flavor is sweet with notes of hard roasted malt, chocolate, wood, leather, and caramel, leading to a dry and very bitter finish with notes of chocolate lingering.. The body is a bit thin inspite of the 7.3% ABV. Work on the head retention and body.
