2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
473 ml can from the brewery via Steve (thanks!), served cold in a tulip glass.
App.: Deep brown-black with a fairly tight mocha head.
Aroma: Grape-like fruitiness, roasted barley, a bit of coffee/chocolate, lightly smoky/phenolic, more coffee as it warms.
Palate: Medium-ish body, creamy carbonation.
Flav.: Roasted barley, lighter grape-like fruitiness, black strap molasses, a little coffee, no chocolate here, dark and stern; dry with decent bitterness and a dark-roasted, stern finish.
A bit different from other stouts due to the lack of sweeter notes.

Can from the brewery. Pitch black with a small dark brown head that leaves tight lace. Nose is chocolate and coffee with lots of roasted nuts. Taste has a light sweet cola start and leading to a medium light bitter coffee and chocolate middle with a quite dry finish. Mouth is medium and creamy with soft carbonation. This works well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pitch black pour with a brown head that foams up well and leave a bit of lace on the glass. Fairly expressive aroma with hints of espresso grounds, light chocolate and toast. On the palate it is medium bodies, sports a decent flavour length and finishes a tad fast with little toasty bite. OK.
