3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Medium dark brown color, caramel taste with a shy hop hidden behind. The caramel lasts for a long time which is very good. Overall though I think this stout could have a bit more taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black with a medium-sized tan head. Aroma of moderately roasted malt, onions (!) and light cocoa. Watery. Taste has mild roast, cola, butter, licorice and a little chocolate. Finish has considerable drying bitterness. I donít mind the mild flavours at all, but the texture is pretty weak. Wouldnít stand up to oysters, but seared scallops would work all right.
