12 pour from room temperature bottle into Spiegelau stout glass. Dark brown to black, opaque, huge tan head. Nose is caramel sweetness, coffee, and oats. Mouthfeel is creamy and moderately carbonated. Taste is interesting. Sweet and very dry. Bitter malts, dark coffee, and raisin. A good stout if you?re looking for roasty and assertive.

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.

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).

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.
