2.21/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Soda-like appearance with large bubbles, a dark brown head that springs up but literally fades to nothing, leaving no traces. Roasted notes on the nose, quite faint with a moderately chalky note as well.

The flavor has a strong component of vanilla in the finish, fairly sweet with tempered carbonation in the middle. A little shy overall here - lacking in flavorful stout qualities. Body is middling here as well, because of the carbonation issue - neither creamy nor scrubbing, the bubbles just sit there.

Clearly a small batch effort and probably an early recipe as well. This has promise but is far from ready for a recommendation.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5

A: Respectable dark brown color that let see some reddish tones against light, two finger head that dissipates a little fast with a nice dark beige color.

S: Some toasted malts inside but you can feel a little disgusting aroma like not fresh fruit.

T: Not a pleasant tasting with a bitterness that is confused with deciduous.

M: Not really nice

A: completely opaque dark beer, with a beige creamy foam which dissipates quickly and there is no remains of this after some minutes.

S: some alcohol semll, its like when a fruit ferment

T: some acidity is present , there is no end at all.

It is not a stout to try,only if you find yourself desperate

2.06/5  rDev -10%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

A: Dark brown with some redish tones. The head is about two fingers at first, but in time it wears out to about less than half a finger.

S: It smells like bad fruit, with some light hints of malt.

T: I didn't like the taste at all, i has an awful bitter taste and a bad fruit aftertaste.

M: Not nice.

Definitely not a good beet to try, if its given to you its ok to try, but its not worth buying it.
