Beertopia 2015. Coffee, bitter roast malt, but on the watery side in body and taste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375mL can from Slowbeer. BB 07/05/16
Spot on stout - jet black, dense head, solid tan head.
Plenty of roasty goodness on the nose; toasted nuts, blackened bread, baked cookies, dark choc, touch of coffee.
Full bodied, sort of chewy texture.
Dark chocolate sweetness upfront - dark toffee, roast nuts, dark toast, mild roast coffee, bit of earthy hop in the mix. Moderately bitter, smooth finish.
Class act - lovely & smooth.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
375ml can into pint glass. Sweet acidic nose. Dark ruby red beer with foamy tan head. Fizzy mouthfeel, medium body. Finish is chocolate and coffee, quite dry. Nice if unexceptional stout.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Completely against the general consensus, I love this stout. Dark chocolate is big on the nose, roast peanuts, and vanilla as well. Awesome ruby hue black body with a sandy white head. A little thin but so smooth. A very easy going full flavoured stout, great balance.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Unconvincing - thin body - low on flavour - innocuous but insipid - expected better.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a black colour with a tan head of medium density. The aroma is of hops, resin and slightly of oatmeal. The flavour is mild and of oatmeal and grass. There is little bitterness and the flavour is short-lasting on the palate. Overall, a bit disappointing and a bit light-on for a stout.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
375ml tinnie with BB of 7/5/16. Almost complete black (slight red-brown hue) with a medium sized creamy tan head. Aroma is roasty dark chocolate malts, dark fruits, and faint coffeebeans. Flavour is fullish sweetness with a mild dryness to the finish. Palate is medium bodied and malty. Quite sweet for a stout but not too sickly and quite easy to drink.

From a 375ml can on 9/7/2015 (ABV listed as 5%, no reference to Rare Breed). Pours dark brown with a medium head. Has a mild nose of coffee and chocolate. In the mouth, there’s light roasted malt, cocoa, chocolate, coffee and vanilla, with a moderate bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A decent sweetish stout.
