Drinking this and rating it simultaneously. Black with a light tan head, minimal lacing, nice aroma of roasted coffee, flavor is similar, light roasted coffee, hints of chocolate, some and a slight watery, coffee finish. Very nice and enjoyable beer.

Pours a nice, dark black color with a medium head that wears down to a thin lace. Aroma of whisky... possibly Lagavulin. The taste is more whisky and heavily roasted malts. A little tinge of sour as well. Very nice; I would definitely buy this again.

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.

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.
