Bottle at home from asda. Ruby red, mahogany brown coloured pour with a fluffy cream head. Aroma is soapy, dirty socks, faint coco powder. Flavour is composed of woody, harsh tannin, berry, hot alcohol, coco. Palate is moderate carbonation. Powdery on the tongue. Pretty shit.

Bottle Asda Coleraine - black with an off white head. chocolate malt dominates the aroma. Lots of roast malt in the initial taste, moves on to a dry bitter roast malt finish which really lingers. Mouthfeel is full and creamy.
