2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
This is the best of Schell´s lineup. That being said, it is still quite thin and unremarkable. The color is very dark, but that is about it. I have spent a good deal of time in London drinking Stouts and have never run across anything like this (which is a good thing).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Decent stout that has a few minerally aftertaste and palate attackers, but generally will do the trick.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black color, medium body and average head. Aroma and taste are traditional stout roasted malt---dialed down to pretty bland. Little hop bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a very dark brown - almost black - with a light tan head and minmal lacing. Aroma was of malts and coffee with a slight fruitiness. Taste was complex - roasted malts, nutty, coffee, chocolate hints and a light hop finish. Mouth was decent. Overall, a nice ’milder’ stout.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark brown almost black with a nice sized head of tan foam. Nose is cocoa and dark malt. The texture is full with good creaminess. Taste is full of cocoa, coffee and dark roasted grains. It has a nice finish that is not too sweet or too bitter. A well made stout that compares well to Guiness. Try it with with smoked cheese and crackers.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown pour, large tan head that dissipates rather quickly. Start is malty with caramel overtones, then reveals the chocolate & coffee flavors. Finish is smooth with no surprises. Not much bitterness, not an emphasis on hops. Pleasant, a brew for the summer months: light for a stout.
