Pours dark brown with a tan head. Very sweet aromas of chocolate, roasted malt, caramel and slight fruity sweetness that was unexpected. There is nice level of carbonation that has nice mouthfeel. Flavour also has some roasted nuts, malt and dark cocoa. Some excellent complexity.

Bottle. This was a bit over carbonated, which is strange given it’s space credentials, so I may have had a dud. Flavour was quite nice, so I’ll have to try again.

A reasonable stout with the right amount of bitterness for this style, but poor head retention lets it down.

Craft Clerkenwell. Bottle thanks to big Dave’s antipodean haul. Cheers mate. Opaque black brown beer, good tan head. Palate is light and airy. Semi dry. Slightly tangy dark malts. Whisper of candy fruits and violets. Light dry finish. Interesting if a bit thin.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Dave.it pours darkest brown with a small tan head. The nose is rich, chocolate, treacle, coffee, some roast and oiliness. The taste is roasted malt, toast, coffee, earth, some acidity, pepper and light bitterness. Lightish body and moderate carbonation. Smells rather nice, but unfortunately a bit thin for my liking. Decent enough though.

330mL BB AUG 14
Pours a nice looking near-black body with a small, but dense beige head persisting atop.
Somewhat subdued aroma; milk chocolate, caramel, some biscuity malt character.
Nice thick, smooth, oily texture, bolstered by low carbonation. Full bodied, clings onto the palate.
Offers more on the body; plenty of milk chocolate and latté, good hit of toffee sweetness, toasted nuts, and a hint of cooked citrus hop. Good whack of bitterness on a lengthy finish.
A highly enjoyable stout! I daresay a bit closer to a foreign than a dry style stout, but hey, all the better because of it!

Dark brown, thin head. Aroma is pretty intense for a stout of this size in its roasty richness. Body is soft, with nice sweet chocolate, hints of nuts, little bit of hop
