3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2oz bottle in an English pint. Pours very dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some dough, light chocolate, pale malts, and floral hops. Flavor about what a dry stout should be, but could have more malts, like always. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the wharf. Deep clear black with ruby edges and a silky tan head. Aroma of coffee and roasted items. Flavour is malty and strongly but smoothly bitter. Silky mouthfeel and medium body. Finish is almost big and definitely bitter, maybe from hops but probably the black patent malt.

Drought. Inky black with creamy chocolate colored head, milk aroma, coffee beans and milk taste, low carbonation, longish finish with a bit of bitterness on your palate. Very much like Caffreys

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A light smell of malt, not much else. The body is black, the head has a normal size, it is pale beige and milky. It has a strong taste of roasted malt and coffee, quite bitter finish. The body is medium to very strong, very creamy with a soft carbonation. A very good Stout!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle with an interesting pull tab. Black with a thin covering of brown foam. Aroma of dark malt and vanilla lightness. Taste led by cocoa and chocolate malt before dryness kicks in. Technically fine, but not too exciting on the whole.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
25 cl. draft @ Delrium Tap House. Black with an okay mocha head. Nose is sweet caramel with typical mocha, coffee & chocoalte but not very impressive nose. Taste is sweet coffee, middling, caramel, herbs, bit of toffee & coffee, sweet sugar, solid malt presence,... Med. to light for style body. Solid effort but not the best around. Now seeing that this is a "Dry Stout" I am far more possitive about this. I gave this 0,1 more for style.
