   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 12/20
mattraven (8) - - DEC 21, 2012
500ml bottle from tesco’s pours with a tan head, bit of lacing aroma is not particularily strong, but pleasant, sort of generically stouty dark appearance, again stout by numbers, thinner than i had hoped for taste was pleasant and importantly i got some oyster through faintly. the stout elemant was not particularily groundbreaking, bit of malt bit too thin on the palate overall, this was pretty average, wasn’t expecting brilliance and it didn’t exceed expectations. would be nice with seafood

Can. An OK stout. Not as rich and full bodied as I had expected. Nice bitter finish. Good with food.

darkseduction (731) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2017
50cl. Tiefdunkel, malzig, fast kein Hopfen. Besonders hervorzuheben die extreme Weichheit, keine Spur von kratziger, röstmalziger Bitterness. Sehr gelungen!

john44 (2708) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2017
Bottle. Black in colour, Reddish against light. Malty; roasty malts, espresso coffee, bitter chocolate, caramel. Hoppy; light hops. Roasty sweet malty with slight sour/bitter hop/fruit edge. OK. Easy drinking. (2010-06)

Zlotta (2610) - Hagen, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2017
0.5 l bottle from ’Kiosk Em Veedel’, best before November 2017. Opaque, black with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, light brown head. Faint, sweetish-malty, a bit roasty and slightly grassy aroma of chocolate, coffee, licorice and a touch of grass. Slightly sweetish, malty, moderately roasty and a bit grassy taste of dark chocolate, coffee, licorice and hints of hazelnut, followed by a short, medium roasty-bitter, rather dry and a bit grassy finish. Thin to medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Quite okay, easily drinkable, not too much flavour though.

minihame2 (557) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 25, 2016
Pours black, head disappears quickly. Faint malty aroma. Mild taste, slightly bitter malts. Light body, watery mouthfeel, soft low carbonation. Pretty disappointing.

MattChiasson (70) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2016
Out of the bottle, poured a deep black, opaque with a persistent mocha head. I got aromas of chocolate, coffee, along with some salinity and some subtle dried fruit. You could call it silky, but the palate felt a bit thin/watery for my taste - I got repeats of chocolate, along with cola, and some lingering roast bitterness. Made for a really nice pairing with a molasses based desert, but not sure I would have enjoyed this as much on its own.

Bottle. Dark brown with medium tan head. Malty nose with some metal, chocolate. Metallic mouth with malt, chocolate, molasses. Sweet with light somewhat watery palate.

northropfrye (3388) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 23, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown body, brown head, some soapy lacing. Sweet malty dried fruit aroma, a touch of black markers, and anise. Taste is again quite sweet, but a somewhat watery finish and medium palate. An alright stout. Not too robust, and on the sweet side, but quaffable.
