3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a cool squatty brown bottle into a nonic pub glass. Medium dark reddish brown colour with weak, fast fading head, no lace. Less dark then most stouts. Less toasty and roasty then typical stouts too, more of a caramelly brown ale plus subdued cacao nibs taste. Some grainy, bready, fruity aromas which were less pronounced in the flavour. Not even much chocolate flavour. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, crystal malt aftertaste. Okay, not great. An easy-drinker but a missed opportunity as a chocolate stout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I certainly wouldn’t call this a black beer. It’s a brown ale. Brown pour, thin head. Aroma is malty. Flavor is sweet, roasted malts. Definitely a brown ale. To look at this beer as a stout - it would rate very poorly.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A deep chocolate color with a thin white head that dies quickly
A light earthy smell that could almost be missed
The taste is lightly sweet lightly bitter. It is exactly what any stout should be.
A smooth light body and slight finish really round this beer out nicely.
