500ml bottle. Pint glass. Roasted, burnt & floral aromas as cap is removed. Pours black in color showing very dark ruby tints to the light. Head is beige, creamy, close & lasting. Dried nuts, hints of wood, black coffee infusion & roasted grain are displayed to the nose. Roasted, burnt & watery upfront. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Silky palate & subtle spicy touch. Hints of bitter cocoa, well balanced malts & hops & dried sensation. Sweet finish & slight hop on the aftertaste. Nice drinkability.

Pours an effervescent mahogany with 2 fingers of fast falling, rocky, mocha colored head. Alright lacing & near zero head retention

S: Dark fruit, figs & jammyness

T: Dark fruit, a touch of iron, leafy hops up front. Faint molasses notes, a touch of figs , & carob as this warms. Finishes slightly fruity with a bit of carob & iron

MF: Light body, very slight carbonation

Very tame take on the style not bad, but not good either

Loved this brewery's beer on cask in the UK, these small beers just don't travel well...

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high tan head that quickly died down, leaving only a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of dark and roasted malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell, except that the roasted malts seem a little muted and there are some additional hints of chocolate malts and brine. No sweetness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems to exhibit most of the characteristics of a milk/sweet stout, except that is a little lighter in body and doesn't have any sweetness.

A tasty, easy to drink sweet stout that is a pleasure to drink

taste: chocolate, plum. raison, slight lemon and spice with some red wine

quite sweet but not over done and well balanced with many nice flavours coming through on the palate. Would be very happy to have it again.

A_Looks like a Guiness. Dark brown/black with a creamy tannish top.

S_Mild mineral notes Not much aroma

T_Slightly sweet with some roasted grains. A mineral/iodine note comes through as it warms. Aftertaste is mildly bitter with some chalk notes.

M_Typical nitro mouthfeel. Creamy with a low soft carbonation.

O_Decent enough but nothing to get excited about. Goes down smooth enough and was probably served too cold.

Gorgeous appearance in the small goblet. Jet black, creamy beige head, and lacing like a milkshake down the glass. The taste is not much, which would seem to be the authentic style. Some caramel plus a mineral taste. Eventually some hop bitterness and a burnt malt flavor emerges.

Super creamy on the tongue with a satiny mouthfeel. Judging from other reviews, the nitro version is a huge improvement. Strangely delicate for such a black beer. A satisfying quaff for a lower-alcohol brew. On tap at San Diego Brewing Co. [notes from April 8, 2012 visit]
