3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark brown with a large, creamy head right out of the can! Nose is rich of malts and sweet caramels. Taste is a pleasant blend of chocolate and caramel malt, and some hints of toasted malt. A little sweet from the caramel and chocolate, but overall a very rich and tasty feel. Medium body.

Aluminum receptacle. Pours a slightly hazy dark brown color with a sizable thich head. Aroma is roasted malts, dark fruits and some bitter chocolate. Flavor is much the same - dominated by the sweet roasted malts, a smidge of coffee & chocolate and some peatiness. Rather tasty...so tasty, even my wife liked it!! Fairly full-bodied.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2012 Dark raisin and brown colored body with a toast brown head. Crisp and sweet up front, full of molasses and maple flavors, maple wood, sap and dark fruit such as raisins and dates, all soured by the typically dirty and gritty yeast phenols and fusel alcohols. horribly flabby and lifeless texture, just sugar syrup and caramel. jesus christ fellas, get your fermentation temperatures figured out, your beer tastes disgusting.

Roasted coffee, oak and maple syrup in the aroma. Almost black in appearance with a thick brown head that laces well. Medium palate. Nice roasted flavor, lightly sweet. Good flavor and balance.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2007 Sweet, creamy, malty goodness. Very delicious. Not much hops. The complex, smoky, nutty malt character makes this beer more than hint at the character of a stout. Very yummy.

Can from Broudy’s Liquor. Poured dark brown color with an average creamy brown head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate roasted malty and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with sticky texture. Heavy roasted sweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a standout beer.

What a shocker for a can, great pour. Deep dark color with big head. Nose of dried fruit with a hint of spice. Flavor is toasted coffee up front with mellow sweet dried fruit then folds into a little hop finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Canned, Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Dark brown colour with ruby notes, firm beige head. Malty, nose with dark fruit, cherries and chocolate. Malty taste with dark fruit, chocolate, coffee (with milk) and a well balanced, lovely finish with spicy notes of hops and hints of smoke. Medium to full body, perfect balance. Velvety, smooth and charming (well, that’s the first word I come to think of) mouthfeel. I normally get bad vibes from beer in cans, but this beer was actually really brilliant. A real beauty! And it comes out of a can. Brilliant stuff.
