3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Coffe note in the nose, opaque black, creamy frothy head. Sweet for a brief second at the beginning--like dark chocolate. Then turning to a burnt charcoal taste. Creamy texture. Maybe too roasted, but fun anyway.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep brown coloured body (80% opaque) with a frothy white head, and yes, you could tell from the minute it hit the counter that it has been nitrogenated. Aroma of roasted products - malt and nuts the strongest essence. Light, Smooth bodied; Tastes of coffee and chocolate dominate the early tastes and stay long on the palate. Aftertaste shows more malt and a bit of the nuts from the smell. Overall, a good dry stout that shows well at a brewpub. I sampled this beer on draught at the brewpub on 28-February-2007.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served on tap in a english pint at the brewpub. Very enjoyable Guinness clone. One to drink over and over. The look is nice and the flavor is very smooth and milky. There’s a bitter blur in the finish. Head stays. If you like Guiness and Murphys you’ll like this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Black with a dark tan head. A fantastic head it is: cascading nitrogen-induced tiny bubbles falling down. The strong aroma is of coffee and molasses. This beer has an interesting milky sourness for a dry stout. Finish gives you a strong reminder flavor of the gypsum that is in it. Delicious!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub. Imagine a Guiness with an aroma, abit of chocolate and a better flavor, a little bitter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Near black with a nice head. The aroma has a fat roasty tang and light chocolate. The flavour is mainly the same. Pretty straightforward example, with a bit of brashness but this is not trying to win the Imperial Stout World Championships I don’t think.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub. Dark black with small brownish head. Heavy espresso aroma and flavour. Dryish with dense mouthfeel, There’s plenty of coffee, licorice and tar all th eway through to the salty, bitter finish. Perhaps not much finesse, but it sure packs a heavy punch of flavours.
