500ml bottle. ½ Pint glass. Enjoyed on agt´11. Dark copper in color, dark ruby to the light. Beige, creamy crown. Fairly well retention, rings & spots on sides. Caramel & toasted malt & plum aromas, some floral hues. Gentle toasted maltiness, sweet syrup & fruity notes. Sugary, slightly smoky in the middle. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Dark berries on the aftertaste. Smooth & gentle drinkability. Matches fairly well with desserts.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Deep, clear, reddish brown. Small one finger light brown head that fades quickly and entirely, leaving no lacing.

S: Sweet, bready, and toasty malts. Some spices.

T: Rich, caramel-like sweetness that isn't too cloying. Very mild herbal hop bitterness. Some toasted notes.

M: Full body, despite the low ABV. Decent carbonation. Very smooth.

O: Simple, delicious, and true to style. A big thanks to Simon at La Cave à Bulles for this great freebie!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

330ml bottle poured in a chalice.

Good and refreshing but, too "light" to a Stout.

A: Pours clear and nice dark caramel color with a huge beige and bubbled head
S: Smells roasted and caramel malts, basically
T: Quite "light" for a Stout (not enough tasty and not enough bitter). Sweet upfront. Caramel malts dominates the taste
M: Light to medium body. Low to medium carbonation
D: Good beer, but I've expected a bit more from a Scottish Stout

3.73/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a jet black with a two-finger head of tiny tan bubbles.

S: Roast malt with chocolate and raisins. There's a hint of something else in there, but I couldn't place my finger on it, and there was a guy smoking nearby.

T: This is a very sweet stout. In fact, I'd call it a porter on nitro-tap. In small amounts, it's fantastic, but the sweetness becomes cloying the more you have. (I had a half-liter serving.)

M: Fuller than your typical Irish dry stouts and very creamy.

D: A great dessert beer in a snifter, but not a session beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

This beer pours a clear, beautiful deep caramel or mahogany color. Smells of caramel, molasses, and perhaps a little licorice. A bubbly tan head fizzes quickly to leave thin lacy covering over the liquid.

Taste is sweet, strong deep roasted malt flavor, with caramel and mocha notes and a slight aroma reminiscent of sweet scotch. Subtle hop flavor plays well among the more noticible malt character, increases some in the finish. The sweetness and malt come together to produce a very enjoyable mouth feel.

This is an incredible beer, very well rounded, just fantastic. I could drink several of these at a moment's notice.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours clear dark with beautiful dense head and patchy lacing. Aroma is mild roasted malt, hints of vanilla.

Taste smooth and creamy sweetish malty caramel, some fruit and chocolate, very low roasted bitterness towards the end of the glass.

Overall, the beer was suprisingly sweet, but not in a bad way.

look: 5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

This pours great to make a good finger and a half thick head, which retains quite nicely. The lacing is exquisite. The body is dark ruby red in color, when held up to sunlight, and has clean filtered clarity.

Aroma characteristics are of toasted breads, but are quite faint.

The taste is a little on the sweet side, like a cola and root beer mix, with a touch of herb to keep things from getting too out of hand.

This feels somewhat light in body thin. There is a good amount of carbonation, which makes this more of a refreshing brew with a hint of complexity.
