Bottle, Carringtons, Chorlton. Very dark brown pour with a tan head that diminished to leave a lingering rim. Aroma had a decent amount of roast, with notes of hazelnut, dark chocolate, dark fruits and trace car tyre.
Slid down nice n’smooth. Further chocolate, fruits and roasted malt in evidence flavour wise. Dry bitter finish. A very drinkable and tasty stout. Nice one.
