Bottled(500ml). -Black coloured, small cappuccino head, light roasted coffee nose. Dry coffee, mild chocolate and roasted malt taste with bitter finish. One-dimensional and weak stout, and to be honest I’ve expected much more.

Bottled@SBWF2008 (My rating #1000 for England). Black colour, small beigeish brown head. Roasted malts, tobacco and some caramelly notes. Flavour is sweet fruits, roasted malts and some mild coffee and burnt wood. Otherwise nice, but has a quite thin and watery body.

[my 100th stout, the 10th style to reach a century]
Pours deep brown with a small, creamy, beige head. Aroma is softly roasted, some clear, sweet oatmeal. Light chocolate as well. A bit hin mouthfeel. Flavour is malty, with a rather dry chocolate and cocoa finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Dark brown, almost black with very thin short lasting head. In my opinion, not a good stout. A little roasted malts and coffee but nothing really doing much for me. Didn’t like this one, perhaps it’s just me.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled: Black color, nearly no, off-white head. Aroma is full of roasty malts, cold coffee and burnt toast. Flavor has a sourly base, roasty notes too with roasty and hop bitterness in the finish. Not very well balanced.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.5l bottle courtesy of ogivlado (thanks!), shared with him and heavy
Poured a black body with almost no head (off white). Light nose, sweetish. Coffee & malt. Relatively acidic, dry coffee taste, a bit ashy, going long in the aftertaste, simple. Fine slightly woody maltiness but too acidic for its own good. Not unpleasant but a bit unbalanced. Not my type of stout.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
09/04 0.5 l bottle courtesy of ogivlado, thanks for sharing! It poured very dark reddish-black body with medium sized to smaller brown head. Aroma is fine, coffee malty with some chocolate and dark fruits. Some acidity here, but in its flavor as well. Fine woody and caramel maltiness dominates here, and it would be really nice if not so thin bodied. Finish was short then, some acidity more pronounced here. OK, but a bit too boring as lacks body.
