3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg (Nitro) at Maui Brewing Co Brewpub, also on my honeymoon almost 10 years since the last rating. Do they just brew this one when a ticker comes on honeymoon? 23/04/14 long live St George.
Black with a moderate tan covering, good lacing ensues.
Nose carries a good roasty blast, dark malts, cocoa powder, vanilla, toffee.
Taste comprises cocoa powder, sweet tinges, dark toffee fudge.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying close.
Decent enough for a dry stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on Maui during my honeymoon! Dark black/red. Frothy off-white head with nice retention and lacing. BIG roasted nut and malt aroma. Sweet, roasty flavor, creamy with a salty underbelly that nicely balances out the sweetness. A tad light on the palate, though.
