Gravity at the Battersea Beer Festival 2013. Poured black, with a dense tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, dried fruit and liquorice. Flavours were quite sweet; lots of chocolate, caramel and slightly flat malt. Finish was more of the same; there was treacle and cooked fruit in the mix.

GBBF. Black, decent sized head endures. Smells of chocolatey malts. Body is light. Taste is interesting - smokey and sweet, some tea, slightly sour. Easy drinking stout. Not bad.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500 ml bottle sampled in 2008. Dark brown, almost black body with a thin beige head. Aroma has roasted malt, mocha and a bit acidic. Flavor is weak malty, slightly roasted, some coffee and feels sour. Thin and watery body, not very pleasant aftertaste. Might be something wrong with this bottle.
