3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very black bodied and with stable beige lace. Coffee, woody, toasted, dark caramel. Rich aroma for the abv. Quite creamy. Taste is creamy too, medium sweet, light smooth hop bitterness that’s more apparent in the end. Quite creamy and nice but somehow it’s not overly appealing to me. Perhaps my mood. (33cl bottle from Bière Révolution)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Sonoma Cellars. Pours a very, very dark brown with a light brown head leaving spots of lace. Aroma has dark fruits, caramel, chocolate, and licorice. The plum component of the dark fruits, and contrastingly, the bakers chocolate, come through more down the glass. Taste follows; stone fruits, some chocolate, some caramelly malts. Medium bodied, mostly fruity. Decent. 14.3

Bottle from Jane’s Beer Store in Mountain View. Pours black with light brown lacing. Aroma of licorice, spice, and burnt grains. Interesting and unique taste. Floral, spicy notes, with roasty grains, fairly sweet, with a long smooth floral finish. Medium-full body. Pretty nice!

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
08-AUG-2014, draft @Mikkeller & Friends.
Black with low grey’ish head.
Aroma is weak roast, sweet licorice and dark berries.
Taste is berries, prunes, roast, coffee but first of all berries.
Above average body and carbonation. Strange one - especially for at stout. Not very roasted. Tastefull and well made but strange.

bottle. black with one finger tan head. strikes me as a quad/stout hybrid. lots of dark fruit, but all the roasty malt that you’d expect from a stout. very interesting and tasty brew. well done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black with brown tints. Thin head. Chocolate and smoke aromas. Dry roasted flavors and some toffee sweetness makes this a better foreign stout. Finish is not too dry. Very good.

Bottle from Mane Liquor cheers to Baldy. This is a weird one. Kind of seaweedy.... Yeah definitely seaweed as a note in there. Odd stuff. Kind of liked it though. Sessionable as for 8%

On tap @ Beer Temple, taster size. Black color, beige head. Aroma’s: red fruit, caramle. Retronasal it’s sweet, sugarwater, red fruit, some herbs. Flavor is moderate to full sweet, lightly roasted, a bit drop/licorice. Medium bodied. Flavor seems to enhance towards the finish, more roast, light bitterness, but overall to sweet and not very stout-like.
