3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From some old notes from 10 years ago. Roasty malt, caramel, coffee, hint of licorice, opaque dark brown, frothy head, medium malty sweetness, slightly bitter, roasty dry finish that lasts long, surprisingly light mouthfeel. Really a pity they donít brew this anymore...

Dark brown to black pour, medium sized very creamy head. Smokey aroma, quite thick, hints of spices, coffee and malts.
Strong smokey coffee flavour, overal still a bit thin.
Long deep coffee and smoke after taste. (A bit too) easy going stout.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Cheeseman for sharing this one.
Pours dark brown, quickly flat with some golden lace.
Aroma had some old vinegary nose with hints of malt.
Flavor had clear oxidized notes though the overall profile remained nice. Some chocolate malts, hints of coffee and toffee, light caramel. Finishes a little flat. This could have been a nice gem years ago.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big thanks to TheCheeseMan for this really old brew. It pours murky dark brown and still. The aroma is musty dark fruity notes, musty sticky sweetness, chocolate, vanilla and dusty molasses covered cardboard. The taste is thin and flat feeling feebly ushering in notes of chocolate, molasses, cardboard, dirty dusty leather and caramel. This bottle is likely a decade past its prime. All things considered it was an enjoyable experience that I feel lucky to have partaken in.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hardly any head. What little there is is light brown and coarse. Opaque black body. Sweet, syrupy aroma with notes of flour, oil, and chocolate. Taste is sweet and chocolatey, with notes of syrup and light marzipan. Dryish, coffeeish aftertaste. Light, delicate, and very nice. (0.3l bottle.)

Cinnamon and some roasted malt in the aroma. Sweetish taste with some roasted malt, liquorice and coffee. Bitter aftertaste. Not bad.
