Not bad for a supermarket. Good aroma and flavour come through for the price.

Dervock (505) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - SEP 4, 2014
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.

500ml bottle from some supermarket - Rich mahogany body, thin creamy tan head. Nose is toast, chocolate, coffee, roasted nuts and smoke. Taste is a nice rich bitter and burnt. Bitter finish. A bit thin, but otherwise a great own-label supermarket beer.
