look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

9.6 oz. bottle poured into a tulip.

A- Very very deep brown, near black, but some highlights of dark amber come through on the edges of the glass. Light brown head retains at 1/8". Lacing doesn't appear.

S- Sweet malt. Some coffee and cocoa.

T- Light sweetness. I can definitely taste the roasted barley. A little bit of chocolate comes in too.

M- Medium oily body. Viscosity really lubricates the palate. A bit strange. A nice sweet finish to the beer however.

O- Interesting and decent. The depth in flavor was more than I was expecting, but the oiliness was a bit off. I don't know if I could drink more than the 9.6 oz. in one sitting.

A- pours absolute black with small tan head that disperses quickly into lacing.

S- Roasty maltyness and unripe bananas

T- nice roast malt sweetness with a slight bitter finish

M- good body with little carbonation which makes for a general creaminess

O- overall a good no frills stout that's a good session beer

Pours a deep amber to black in color with a tan head. In the aroma, a mellow coffee like maltiness. In the taste, a small alcohol presence and a mellow roasty maltiness. A smooth and medium bodied mouthfeel with a small dry roasty malt, with coffee and caramel like aftertaste. Mellow yet a boozy taste. A nice mix of coffee and caramel malts.

300 ml bottle purchased from LCBO for $2 CDN. Served fairly cold into a pint glass.

Appearance - very, very dark brown, nearly onyx black. Topped by a finger of tan head which dissipated quickly. Sparse lacing left behind.

Smell - boozy and yeasty, kind of a sweet Belgian funk. Some caramel and butterscotch.

Taste - sweet, vanilla, butterscotch and caramel dominate. Sweet continues, and there's not enough bitterness to cut through the sweetness. Yummy but definitely a dessert beer. Not boozy, but the booze is melded in the the sweetness in an obvious way.

Mouthfeel - smooth and creamy, medium carbonation and moderately light body.

Overall - decent stout, but very sweet and missing some bitterness to cut through and make this even better.

284ml bottle (£1.49, Costcutter, London):
Dark black colour with a thumb sized and foamy looking white head that holds incredibly well and looks rather thick. There was a nice amount of lacing too.

Sweet smelling beer with a pleasant dark chocolate and caramel aroma coupled with some darker fruits such as raisin and figs. There was a touch of plum as well and a sort of milky chocolate aroma towards the end along with a slight touch of alcohol coming through.

Milky chocolate base with some light coffee and some stronger caramel together with the same combination of darker fruits found in the nose, notably fig, plum and raisin along with some sugar sweetness from these.

A medium body with a smooth taste and a very sweet, alcohol laced mouthfeel that was slightly creamy on the finish.

Strong and sweet beer with good depth of flavour and a lot going on with it. A good beer to drink and one that despite the hints of alcohol also went down very easily. Probably not quite as good as Lion Stout but certainly a beer I would have again should the opportunity arise.
