Tasty sweet stout. This ones smells of armoma of nuts and roasted malts. Looks good and medium dark as a pour into a glass. Ok stout but nothing that really stands out to me and gives it that character.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Average. Aroma is roasted malt with some dark fruit notes. Taste is lots of roasted barley flavor with some faint caramel and raisin notes. Finish is a slightly smooth with very little body--would have like more body...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nearly black with a tiny tan head.
Alcohol, chocolates, and coffee in the nose.
Roasted barley - slightly smoky, slightly rubbery. Reminds me a bit of a pinotage in the smokiness/rubberiness (I happen to enjoy a good pinotage, so this is a plus for me).

Pours black with a thin off white ring. Aroma is roasted malts, oatmeal and bitter chocolate. Taste is just a great basic oatmeal stout. Well made, no glaring errors.

Bottle received in trade, just short of two years now. Black, a tad thin in head and taste. Lots of lace. Interesting now. Strangely boozy aroma.
