From a bottle. A nice smoky roasted aroma. Taste is unmistakenly a stout but not too powerful although a smokey note stays throughout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dj (536) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle, 500ml. Black pour with a decent sized head that dissipates quickly. A burnt, malty aroma. Flavour is smoky malt with a little cocoa bitterness. A watery finish. Not bad for the low abv.

beeebon (307) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2015
This rating is for the bottled version which isnít quite as nice as cask. Pours a very dark copper colour with small dark tan head which doesnít last long. Smell is dark fruits, slight chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Taste is mild sweet and medium bitter, a tad watery in body but lingering taste. Decent stout!!

Watery and everything is described by that word. Almost no top. But it is beige while exist. Colour is not so bad, dark copper, clear and hardly transparent. Chocolate light aroma, but everything is light with this beer, In rare occasions that could be nice also.
