3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at some London restaurant. Nice opaque black pour with very rich, very creamy off white head. Aroma is potent for something served with beergas, nice crisp roasted grain aroma, burnt grain, light coffee, super clean yet not dull. Strong roasty flavor, coffee. Very drinkable and light on the palate despite low carbonation, bone dry. Strong showing.

Can shared by b3shine. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Good roasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth dry texture with soft carbonation. Moderate toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of average duration. Solid drinkable dry stout.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Visual: Aluminum can. Pours ultra dark brown/black with bubbles clinging near the bottom-base of the glass, virtually no head, a very thin ringed retention, almost no activity other than a few bubbles surfacing.
Nose: medium roasted malts, burntness. (lvl-6)-pungency.
Attack: thin-watery, sharp nitrogenated mouthfeel
Mid-palate: med-high sourness, (lvl-4)-sweetness (MAIN) roasted malts, coffee
Finish: roasted coffee exhale, bittersweet malty finish.
Summary: The watery mouthfeel coupled with the almost flat mouthfeel put me off on this one. Flavour of roasted malt is ok but texturally unbalanced on the sour side.

440 ml can from an LCBO in Toronto. A pitch black colour pour with an impressive, nitro-powered, milk chocolate coloured head about an inch thick; rich drinking chocolate aroma; a thin milky body with a pleasnt coffee taste, perhaps a little too sweet though; and a dry chocolate milk finish with a touch of bitterness. Overall rather good.

Can. A good middle of the road stout. I prefer my stouts from a bottle, they don’t feel as proud coming from a can. Has a strong roasted coffee taste lots of dark chocolate bitterness. Has a nice thick creamy mouth feel and finishes dry like the style implies. A tasty dry stout.

16 oz can to snifter (shared with the group; thanks DuffMan). Looks good for the style; a fairly opaque dull black with foamy/creamy head. Smells of dark malt and mild roast. Tastes like it smells with an even subtler roast profile. Nice on the palate; smooth and dry. Nothing special, but very quaffable.
