2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured an opaque black with a red tint. No head; no lace. Aroma of roasted grain and a slight malt sweetness. Taste of sweet malt, roasted grain and caramel. Medium to light body. Short smooth finish.
Ohh I like this beer! Pours black as, with nice foamy head. Easy on the palate (maybe a bit thin), but those malts!!! Nice smooth chocolate, toffee, vanilla and toast and zero or little bitterness to finish. This is a very easy drinking black beer with lots of taste - and smooooth!

Bottle in Seattle. My brother found this somewhere out East. Gray-tan head, nice dark malty body. Looks good. Nose is a touch sweet, but with some nice roast. Body is a bit creamy, some coffee, some dark bread. Body is muted, a bit waxy. Flavors are fine but a bit underwhelming. Some burnt licorice. Fairly nice.

Nice drinkable black beer. Good dose of chocolate, coffee, caramel and biscuit. A lighter dark beer, less creamy and more carbonation. Almost like a session dark beer.

330ml bottle. Coffee, plums, smoke, toast. Little creamy as it warms. Over carbonated. Not bad.

Dark colour, white creamy head, pleasant roasted malt aroma. Similar taste, smooth. Very enjoyable. LazyPyro (1212) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2016
330ml bottle. Almost black colour with a one finger creamy tan head, good retention. Aroma: light roasted malts, notes of dark fruits, coffee, chocolate. Taste: same as aroma. Texture is quite thin, as is the body. Not a bad beer but not outstanding in any way. StuffWine (167) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 29, 2016
Poured a lively solid but fizzy black with good tan head that stayed well. Aroma dry and of faint espresso. Flavour initially mild espresso but then moves into simple dusty cocoa / dark chocolate notes. After a while than secondary flavour seems chalky. Watery on palate, yet medium body due to lively carbonation, long finish. Overall ok, something to quaff rather than savour. Perhaps a good introduction to dark brews.

Roasted malt nose.
Poured black with not much head.
Mild bitterness with roasted malt finish. Body a bit thin.
Also a touch oxidized.
OK session black beer I guess.

Poured from a tap. Smells like a less salty marmite. As a mainstream beer this is quite enjoyable. Nothing fantastic but has more flavour to it than a lot of other standard monteiths. Smooth finish.
