2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - Pours out opaque black with a thin tan head. Smells roasted malt licorice and a slight hop almost skunk aroma. Thin quite sweet stout rather one dimentional but not a bad sesion stout if you can handle the sweetness. Needs a a little bittering hops to round out the finish.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Øl købt i Føtex for 15 kr.
Stout ??? - Den mangler kraft og er mere a la tysk schwarz beer.
Øllen er mørkebrun, og har et brunt sæbeagtigt skum, der relativt hurtigt forsvinder.
Nå man dufter til den første gang dufter den som en flad Hof. Smagen er dog som en hof der er brændt på. Kulsyren er også som en hof.
Ikke en øl, som jeg vil drikke igen.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Weak aroma with a hint of liquorice. Almost black colour, small stable head. The flavour is roasted, perhaps roast barley. Weak liquorice flavour. High carbonation. Quite boring.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
18 Dec 05 - Sweetish roasted malt and some hop aroma. Clear dark brown colour, reasonable head and lacing. Roasted malt flavours but lacks a broader complexity. Up front bitterness that is a bit thin.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark with avergae tan head. Aroma was thin of malts, some oats and light coffee. Some hops kick in at the very end but except for this the flavour is thin without a lot of malt backbone.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Great appearance in both bottle and glass. The nose is quite absent however but for a faint aroma of roasted malt and some slightly coffee flavour. The taste is better at least in the sense that it does demonstrate some good stout qualities but for mine this falls short in mouthfeel and ABV. The promised broom full of hops also fails to sweep me off my feet. Perhaps as my ratebeeriness grows I find I prefer higher ABV beers in styles that should be assrtive and strong. The Pommie penchant for low alcohol is sometimes a negative as is this one.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Like Guinness Draught without the full foamy head or palate. Serviceable stout flavour, a small tad of the chocolatey/coffee aroma.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: olive, carbon and some hop. Apperance: black with red highlights clear, tan small head, patchy sud lacing. Flavour: carbon, sweet malt, hint of nut and notceable hop bitterness. Palate: bitter/carbon finish and thin. Jokingly my girlfriend has written "god damn HOT label!!!" on my tasting notes since it was visuallly so impressive (despite the clear bottle.)

Dark clear brownb ale with a thick light oka head. Light sweet chocolate aroma with vanilla notes. Watery stout with diluted chocolate and some light bittering hops. Rather boring. LCBO.
