look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured a quick foaming head of two fingers on a black body.
The aroma is roasted malt; a little thin but fine enough.
The taste is lacking depth. Some roasted malt, a touch of bitterness.
The texture is crisper with moderate carbonation.
The stout lacks depth and breadth. Too crisp a texture. Not satisfying in the least.

A very good taste and smoothness overall. This was marketed as a black and tan case, and as a black and tan ingredient, this stout fairs well - with a mild, smokey taste, and a smooth feel. It's not quite as good as a Sam Smith's stout, but very good indeed.

Bought as part of a DIY black and tan pack, which I think is actually kinda cool marketing. Regular Bass is among my favorite readily available beers, and the IPA was ok too, so decided to drink one of these before combining them

A - dark dark black on the surface, brown and ruby around lit edges. head builds up but then drops quickly. a small surface head was present throughout the drink as well.

S - not much I can detect, just a general pale ale smell, maybe a very very slight hint of roast

T - a little below stout expectations, even for a more subtle English based style. roastiness and coffee aftertaste is most prevalent, but the taste is somewhat dull compared to what it should be. I feel like little to no stout taste would remain once combined into the black and tan cocktail.

M - just shy of being paper thin, and way too fizzy for a stout

O - could use a little more ass to the actual stout flavor, but by no means an awful beer

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours dark brown with some ruby highlights. A thick tan head soon becomes a thin cover, leaving some lacing.

The smell is some chocolate with some dark grain and a hint of roast.

Taste follows the smell. Some sweetness of chocolate leads to a mildly roasted, dry-ish finish.

The body is fairly weak, but holds up enough to stay above being watery.

A simple, basic stout. Could be roastier, and is rather thin. It came in a 6-pack with three of this and three pale ale, with directions on how to make a "black and tan". On it's own, it's decent enough, though nothing special.
