2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. I tried hard to pour it with a head, but it just ended up looking and acting like Coca-Cola. Most noticeable thing about this beer is an overwhelming chalkiness that makes my whole mouth feel like I just ate a calcium supplement, but without the yummy flavorings. Beyond that, itís messy and vegetal.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the brewery. Pours black with no head and very little carbonation. I understand having low carb on a stout, but this is to low. Other than that, a smooth, balanced drinkable beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: Tangy aroma of vanilla and milky coffee.
Appearance: Black body with a thin tan head. No lacing marks.
Taste: Chocolate, wood, coffee and vanilla flavours, but not a huge amount of depth. Sweet and slightly smoky.
Palate: Thin to medium body with a watery mouthfeel. Lively carbonation fizz.
Overall: A flavoursome Stout, but not particularly deep or rich and the texture is very thin. A bit forgettable.
