4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ home. Nice simply label. Strong and fine aroma. Appearance was spongy and pretty, but vanished too soon. Little bit burned dry coffee in taste and palate. Overall very enjoyable stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black color with creamy light brown head. Aroma is really hop forward with some nice roasty undertones and a touch of caramel. If I had this blind, I would have said itís a black IPA for sure. Taste starts quite roasty up-front, bitter and slightly acidic with a slight malt sweetness in the background. Hops are still present with bitter and earthy notes but stay more in the back, letting the roasted malts shine. Medium body with a really soft mouthfeel. Overall this is a bitter stout with lots of hops and roasted malts, really tasty and easy drinking.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 18, 2016 Keg at The Hanging Bat. Pours almost black, oily, dark brown head. Nose is heavyish roast, chocolate, light liquorice. Full body, tastes roasted malts, salted liquorice, bitter chocolate. Full body and taste but still misses something, maybe some more sweetness to balance the salty roastiness.

Tap @ Brewdog Soho. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. The taste is nice and roasted and with flavours of roasted malts, coffee, dark bitter chocolate, hops and a bit of licorice. Very full body for a 7.5% beer. Soft carbonation. VERY tasty. :-)

Tastes like a black IPA -- very bitter, sort of ashy taste. While I sometimes do enjoy intense flavours in beer, this one seemed to distract from the good qualities of the beer. Not my really my cup of tea. Iíve only tried one other in this style so far, The Kernel 1890, which was much more what I would expect/hope for beers in this style to taste like.
