1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
pours very dark brown with a minimal beige head, some retention and lacing. very mineral, earthy, strong ashtray notes, wild bacteria - the bad ones, roasted acidity. moderate carboantion, light body - weak, mineral and bitter coffee finish. rating is obviously biased by a bad infection, my first 1/20, that is - other parameters are rated as objectively as possible, i should say minus the poisonous infection. mega DP.

I don't really know what the difference between taste and palate are. I love a good stout, and THIS is a good stout.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Large bottle from VITI @ The Met Liquor Store in New West. Pitch black, with a tan head. Malts on the nose. Tastes of well roasted malts, with some bitterness noted. Finish is bitter-sweet. A nice dry stout.
Not sure I like this part of the commercial description: "deviations may occur from batch to batch as we improvisationally wander through variations on the theme". This suggests that ratings may not mean much over time. I think they’re just being up front about something that many micro enterprises do, but don’t like to talk about.

There is a minimum of 75 characters for your comments. A good rating says something about the appearance, aroma, flavors, body, and finish and your overall experience with the beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This stout poured a deep black colour with a med brown coloured head. To the nose there are scents of coffee, caramel, cocoa and a little vanilla. First sip was full flavoured with tastes of coffee, caramel and roasty malts. Finish was really burnt with black coffee flavours lingering.

Pours a black colour with almost no head. The aroma is bitter dark chocolate and light coffee. flavour is a little thin with a light bitterness and a bit of sourness. not sure if its a bad bottle or just not that good

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Elle se présente en robe noire, agrémentée d’un col mousseux volumineux et durable, tout en garnissant le verre d’une dentelle écumeuse. Ses odeurs sont constituées de mélasse, de torréfaction, de café, de grains grillés. En fait, ça sent très bon. Son goût est de la même famille que ce qu’elle dégage comme parfum, accompagné d’une légère amertume . Par contre, elle n’est pas aussi musclée en bouche que ce à quoi on serait porté à s’attendre.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Jet black colour with thin tan head. Diacetyl nose. Vinegary and diacetyl taste with sour finish. Worst beer I have ever had. Only reason I gave it a 5 was because of appearance otherwise a complete ZERO.
