Pours black with a thick tan head. Excellent roasted malt and molasses aroma. Feels like you’re about to be in for a big treat, but unfortunately the flavor is quite a letdown. It weighs in at about zero on the complexity scale, which is too bad, since it has great mouthfeel and bitterness is just right.

Nice one. The first time I had it I wasn’t too impressed but I think something I ate eariler messed up my taste. Tried again, was very good. Stay away from anything with sugars for at least an hour when drinking dry stouts!

Dark, smooth pour with a nice dark tan head. Aroma a tad weak, but present. Flavor includes a nice smoky/chocolate taste with a touch of bitterness. Very nice stout that is worth trying again.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Falling out of the bottle deep red and, when in glass sits perfectly opaque. Frothy and foaming head with little lacing. Smells of plums, banana, and alcohol. Sharp tastes of alcohol and peppers. Bitter (good bitter)aftertaste present. Mouthfeel was very light unfortunately. Slight velvet touch saved it. (650 ml bottle)
