0.5l bottle. Dark ruby, almost black body with quickly disappearing light brown head. Aroma and taste of dark fruits, coffee, nuts and lots of chocolate. Weak-medium body. Nice beer but to be honest I expected more.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
DATE TASTED: April 25, 2014... GLASSWARE: Guinness vintage tulip... OCCASION: celebrating a one-day work week! APPEARANCE: jet black body; pours a fizzy brown head that settles in a hurry; sporadically disperses and forms a thin brown line; lacing is thin as well (gets a bump for the bottle, a quaintly antique shape... AROMA: intense, lactic, almost pungent impact with charcoal, peat and chocolate--a swirl of stoutly aromas... PALATE: mildly smooth; a bit oily and liquidy; active and medium-bodied; a bit soda-esque, but not as creamy as hoped for...TASTE: vanilla and milk mix playfully on the tongue; peaty and a bit smoky too--more complex than expected... OVERALL: a working man’s stout, brisk and flat and medium-bodied enough to command attention--a winner, but not among the immortals I’ve imbibed recently...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark with a thick head that lasts nicely. Malty, some ash, chocolate and vanilla. Didn’t do a great deal for me but it was certainly very smooth and having not bothered to look at the label I had no idea it was 6.5%.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 500ml. Black colour with a medium brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and fresh citrus. Flavour is very malty with cocoa. Some woody notes. Dark chocolate on the palate with a little bitterness. Light to moderate carbonation. Alcohol evident but not too much. Really tasty and smooth on the palate.
