3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A decent stout, and when you look at cost for Weston brews, cements the point .. . Pours a dark brown black, some spotty lacing, low head .. . simple, some roast, some tar, alot boring .. . but this was drank right at the end of a tasting so it was almost refreshing and i quite enjoyed it .. . Let’s do some Van Damme-age!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle from Randall’s. Pours an opaque near-black color with a small tan head that leaves a lasting film. Aroma of dark cocoa, sugar, earth, ashes, caramel, and cola. Flavor of burnt toast, tobacco, charred wood, coffee, dark chocolate, and minerals. It’s oddly both very roasty and watery at the same time. Light-bodied, with modest carbonation. Weird, and kind of off.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brutally black colored brew with a medium brown colored head. This left lots of lacing on the glass. Raisins and plums dominate the fruity nose. There is also some hazelnuts and toffee. Ashtray is the dominant flavor at the start and on through the finish. I got some nutty hints and a little bit of prune. This has a weird tang of rhubarb, especially in the ashy aftertaste. I can pass on this one. Weston has been getting better, but this one is a miss.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle purchased in Kansas - pour is fairly impressive - black with dark tan head that diminishes to a moderate, soapy lace - nose is a deep roast, light char, mild vinous notes, light mineral, cocoa powder - creamy mouthfeel, fairly full in the mouth - very dry and intensely roasty, with a lot of dark malt bitterness, but no abrasiveness despite their intensity - light tart and vinous notes - finish of espresso and cocoa powder, with a light woodiness - I am liking the hell out of this.

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. A dusty, musty, and interesting nose. Cocoa. Flavor is similar and there is some coffee. Feel is kind of thin and so is the flavor. Not a great beer but still tasty.
