2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Loco Liquor in Blairgowrie, Johannesburg
Black color with medium sized brownish head. Light aroma of roasted malt, bread, sesame. Roasted malt flavor, with something strange, burnt vegetables; ordinary bitterness; quite dry, and a bit metallic.
Not very good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
No head to speak of. Jet-black beer. Lactose traceable in the nose. Milkchocolate, thouroughly roasted grains & chaff, chocolate wafers. Slightly sourish onset for medium-sweet, roasted/burnt main flavour. Remarkably little bitterness, and the one in the finish is indistinctly hoppy. Again bit lactic. Spritzy, feels more carbonated than it appears. Smooth, slightly creamy MF, but not very well-bodied. OK milkstout. Many thanks to M&L!

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 Plastic bottle at home. Shared with Mathieu87.
Appearance: pitch black beer, nice stable mocha head.
Nose: little coffee, some chocolate, but already rather watery in the nose.
Taste: typical stout taste, though more watery, little smoked towards the end. Good stout for only 5% alcohol!
