A very dark beer with lots of great taste. Low alcohol content however it has a great taste. Would buy again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wow — a 4% stout. A session stout. Surprisingly dark and opaque for a session beer ... or surprisingly thin for a stout. Surprisingly complex for a session beer, with bitter coffee and malt and maybe, just maybe a bit of smoke, or surprisingly simple for a stout. Don’t love it ... not enough there to love ... but a very, very good easy drinking session beer.

Not very complex but elegant. Dark, almost black colour, thin brown head, black coffee in aroma, good roasty and chocolate notes in the palate. An OK session dry stout.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black with small beige coloured head, roasty, burnt flavours detected.
However it was a bit on the watery side.
Overall a nice beer, but not the best of its type.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Coffee and malt aroma. Quite similar to Tsunami Stout, but not as refined. Chocolate, Coffee, cream, malt. Overall its pretty good, nice lasting tan head, black body. It is thin, but it’s still pretty decent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Jet black body with ample tan head. Coffee and chocolate in the nose. Some smoke detected. Mouthfeel was a wee thin for a stout. Flavor was chocolare and coffee and a touch of smoke. Decent.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black with a big tan long lasting head. THe biggest thing that I notice about this is that it has this strange thin body and the taste seems to be just a bit dilute. THere is a sweeping malt flavour but it comes and goes. Tastes like a stout some of the time.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wow this is the best example of a dry stout Ive sampled thus far. This blows Guinness and Murphy’s out of the water! A good roasted malt and coffee aroma. Dark black apperance with a large beige head. The flavor is dry roasted malts, coffee, chocoate, and espresso. This has alot more body than your typical nitro stuff. Anyone that still thinks Guinness is the king of the dry stout style, you need to try this!

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium black, fading brown head. Aroma was of yummy milk chocolate. Bit of a thinner body than expecting based on aroma, chocolate, a hint of something tangy, and that was about it. So-so.
