350ml bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a black colour with hints of red/wine. Thin liquid, not nearly as viscous as other Stouts out there. About two fingers of a fluffy off-white head with medium retention. Beautiful thick lacing left on the glass. (4.25)

S: Very strong roasted malts aroma upfront. Hints of honey, brown sugar, roasted coffee grains, hints of dark chocolate, a bit sweet, metallic smell. (3.75)

T: Follows the nose, but the sweetness I noticed in the smell isn't there. Dry, bitter and rich. Honey and roasted malts are dominant. (3.75)

M: Full-bodied, rich, medium carbonation, roasted malts aftertaste. (3.5)

O: The first couple of times I had this, I absolutely loved it. After tasting many other great stouts, I realize this brew isn't as much of a masterpiece as I thought it would. It's still a very good beer, something I would drink whenever. (3.5)
