2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours like most stouts, dark with a tan head. Coffee on the nose. Good flavor but lacking on the palate side. I agree its a bit watery. Have another? I can dig it.
From Nov 2006
Poured from 12oz bottle(room temp-best by Dec 2006) a very dark brown with reddish hues with a smallish head of foam that shrank to a solid layer and then just a fine ring around the edge of the glass with lacing.
The smell has abundance of roasted and sweet malt and is quite nice.
The taste, initially, has roasted malt and some sweetness followed closely by a nice flavour of dark chocolate that gives it a bitterness that offsets and balances the sweet from this Sweet Stout very well. The finish returns to sweet malt and makes for a very nice aftertaste. Good stuff! I'll see if I can get a hold of a fresher batch and compare...
Bottom line: A *very* tasty sample of the style that I can easily recommend.

OK. Didn't care for it at first but by the time I finished it, it warmed up a bit I thought it was Just OK

APARIENCIA: de color marrón intenso casi negro, se observan destellos rojizos a contraluz. Corona de espuma color marfil de mediana a baja retención, de burbujas compactas y algunas abiertas.
AROMA: presencia de las maltas tostadas es lo que más se percibe, notas a café tostado/quemado, nueces, muy ligeramente la lactosa.
SABOR: de entrada esas notas a café tostado/quemado, algo terroso, nueces, muy ligeramente chocolate dulce y por ahí perdida la lactosa casi imperceptible. En el retrogusto queda un amargor ligero alto, seco y no astringente.
SENSACIÓN: cuerpo medio bajo con sensación ligeramente untuosa en boca, baja carbonatación. Cajun (539) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - JAN 27, 2017
Bottle - Pours a dark brown to black, off-white head. Aroma of fermented dark bread, coffee, hint of chocolate. Tastes of sweet malts, caramel, toffee, dry chocolate, weak coffee, and scorched muffin top. beer_rookie (640) - Arkansas, USA - JAN 10, 2017
Pours a very dark brown, maybe even black color. Has about two finger brown head. Thick, rocky, good retention, good lacing.Erasmus_ro (3133) - Alabama, USA - DEC 24, 2016
Aroma is roasted barley, light coffee. It’s not real strong.
Taste is light cream coffee. Maybe some cherry. It’s creamy. A little smoky. A little ash.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Not as heavy as I would like or expect. Creamy like I said. That ash/smoky taste lingers, and I’m loving that! It’s sessionable.
Overall, I started off not really impressed by it. I’m changing my mind. While it may be light in aroma and taste, it’s really making up for it in the palate. Yeah, I would buy it again. I would recommend it also. Good stuff!!
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a good, latte-colored head. Aroma is roasted, some liquorice, light cacao. Taste is mild, roasty, slight liquorice and cacao. Slightly watery, low carbonation.
