3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black with a beige head that not only was thin, but faded quickly as well. Aroma is a bit unusual for this style, being mostly earthy malts, along with toffee, licorice, and a little bit of raisin. Perhaps chocolate as well. As for the taste, I get a good deal of raisin and licorice. Lesser toffee elements. It really is more on the darker fruity side. It really tastes like juice instead of beer. It is more light in body despite the potency of this one. Thin in texture as well, with an aftertaste of raisin, licorice, and now I get some chocolate. Despite the deceiving palate, the alcohol comes out in this one. I don’t think this one is bad. It just isn’t what I’m looking for in a stout.

Brown beer, small beige head. Nose is roasty, slight acidity, malt, fruity notes, some metal. Flavor is roasty, chocolate, mild hops, spice notes. Lovely hoppy-roasty finish, slight acidity in the roast. Feels a bit thin, but not distractingly so. Hides the booze remarkably well. Pretty nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
I suspect this beer I tried was beyond its peak freshness. Pour was exceptionally flat at flavor had strong oxidation (metallic taste). Aside from that it was nice with chocolate and sweet alcohol flavors.
