No freshness date that I can see

A - Very dark. Held to the light you can see the very dark clear red color. Head is thick and tan, then recedes to cover just the surface.

S - Very strong roasty aroma. Sweet malts and coffee.

T - Relatively simple. Roasty up front, a little sweetness, then it is gone. Not as complex as I thought it could be.

M - Thin and very carbonated. Slight alcohol warmth.

Overall - An easy to drink and simple stout. I've had smaller stouts that are much more interesting so it isn't like it is a small stout, just not a complex one. There is nothing wrong with this beer, I will enjoy it, but it is a bit pedestrian. I have really enjoyed my Dundee sampler, the others are surprisingly good to very good.

12oz single from a mix pack. Served cold in a standard pint glass.

Nearly black brew with a very short-lived head, settles from 1/4" to nothing almost immediately. Nose is watery thin, just a bit of smoke. Taste is burnt caramel, a bit of smoke, some generic hops. Finish is the same, with maybe some dark cherry. Mouthfeel is thin and fizzy.

Not impressed at all. It isn't bad or offensive, per se... just falls flat, nothing good to say about it. Like a weak and bubbly porter at best.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Bottle: Poured a light clear black color stout with a small off-white foamy head with average carbonation and minimal retention and lacing. Aroma of dry coffee and light roasted malt is quiet bland. Taste is a mix between some medium dry coffee notes with some light roasted malt also noticeable. Body is way too thin for style with OK carbonation. Too watery and not enough character to be enjoyable.

Poured into a balloon glass! I don't know why. The beer is midnight black, the color of lost souls. An off-white head recedes to a wisp rather too quickly. No lacing exists. The beer smells musty, metallic, and nothing like a stout. The beer tastes like wet concrete. The mouthfeel is watery.

Overall, massively disappointed! I tend to like all that Dundee have to offer. I love my stouts though and they tried to sneak one by me here, assuming I wouldn't notice their passiveness. Worst Dundee beer.

Poured at 50 degrees from a bottle into a large wine glass. No "best by" date.

A - Very dark, almost black. This is certainly what a stout should look like. Thick, creamy tan foam, but went away quickly. I did get some lacing.

S - Strong coffee with light chocolate and some sweet malt. No hops aroma, but then there shouldn't be in a stout.

T - This is a sweet stout, with a bit more sweetness than I'd like, and a lot more coffee. It was almost like a specialty espresso stout, in my opinion. I thought it was too sweet, almost cloying. If you like a dry stout, you probably won't like this. If you like sweet stout, especially sweet coffee, you'll probably love it.

M - A sweet stout should have medium to full body and low carbonation for a pretty thick mouthfeel. This beer is thin for the type, with medium carbonation and a slightly watery feel.

D - Again, if you like a sweet espresso stout you'll like it. Easier drinking than some because of the lighter, thinner mouthfeel. But if you're more of a hop-head like me, you won't care for this. I appreciate it as reasonably true to type, but I don't personally care for the type.

Poured in a snifter.

A: solid black, nice head, good carbonation
S: unappetizing smell; was this batch skunked?
T: very tinny taste; overall, a very dull metallic clunky taste; toward the end of the glass it was really unappetizing
M: no problems here

This was one of the worst stouts I've had. The overall grade given by other BAs makes me wonder if my case had been on the shelf too long (after all, it was on sale). So I may try it again in some other context, but these stinkers I'm givin' away.

2.2/5  rDev -37%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

A - Very dark brown body that doesn't allow any light through. Head is moderately firm and a medium tan color at two or so inches fading to a humocky leather looking top.

S - Aroma is disappointing with a soapy based accented by narrow lines of chocolate and coffee.

T - No real coffee or chocolate flavors to note. At best there's a some long roasted malts.

M - Watery body with a coarse edge.

~ Not a big fan of this stout. The best character is has to offer is it's looks... and you know what they say, "don't judge a book by it's cover."
