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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can at Fastelavn Smagning 2014 @ J&C’s beer palace, Jutland 28/02/14, acquired from a CA guy in an IP trade.
Light black with a moderate tan swirl cleating to edgework.
Nose is light roast, chocolate, dark malts.
Taste follows, pretty basic stouty profile.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
So so - basic affair.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. A clear-looking dark brown beer topped by a dense, beige head. It’s mostly roasted on the nose, with some dark chocolate. Pretty one dimensional, and that goes for the flavor too. Quite sweet for an Irish style stout, with roasted malts and some coffee. A touch of prunes chime in towards the roasted finish. Medium body, and a nice carbonation level. Well, it’s drinkable for sure, but too boring for my likings. 140228

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"At the Ottawa brewpub: Very nice look! Thick and creamy head that lasts pretty much throughout. Extremely dark brownish colour. Thick lacing. Creamy full bodied mouthfeel. Aroma of coffee and caramel. Hints of chocolate, mocha, roasted malts in the flavour. Not getting much of the hops, which is fine. Not too bitter. Could be thicker for a stout, but it’s good like this, rather than choking on molasses. Loved it!"

Roasty aroma of coffee and chocolate. Opaque near-black colour. Flavour of roasted malt, coffee, and nuts. Sustained bitterness. Heavy body with strong carbonation. Good flavours but a bit too bubbly for my liking.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
The head is so thick that very little aroma is coming through. Faint grassy scent. Solid black. Blocking all light. Two finger, tan head that remained throughout. Light flavour for a stout. Strong chocolate flavour.Very thin almost watery texture. Very little aftertaste. Over all a poor stout.
