2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours thin and brown, not stouty looking at all. See-through with a short head both in length and stature. Mild chicory, carob, and roasted rice aroma. Light palate. Roasty and dark chocolate bitterness in the nice flavors. Not a bad beer but does not seem like a stout.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Near black colored, little light brown head. Sweet syrupy aroma with roastiness and caramel, some vinous note also comes up, still too sweet for me. Medium bodied. Flavor has more roasted start with sweet caramel still coming up, aftertaste turns to syrupy with some biting burnt tone.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light brown colour. Slightly fruity, slightly coffeeish aroma with that metallic note characteristic of the lamer macro darks. Thick body. Has a burnt fruit character like an impy. Long finish is chocolatey, raisiny and with light alcohol as well. For such a lousy aroma, the palate on this brew actually delivers a good foreign stout.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours espresso brown with thin off white head, heavy lacing.
Nose of mud and chocolate.
Taste is like a schwarzbier, acrid, thin, a little roasty, but overall as appetizing as day old black coffee.
