Black stout. Burnt malt aroma. Taste is similar but with a fruity undertone. Quite drinkable.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Opaque black color with a faint copper hue. Magnificent slow construction, wave effect at the bottom, sexy degrading robe from black to white, with super fine head definition. Very thick and creamy beige 2 finger head, lasting around 20 minutes, with basic legs. Flavors of leather and smoked salmon, faint dark fruits and cherries, coffee, chocolate, molassy, with faint spices ans roasted malts. Good balance, but bland. Slick oily medium body with moderate carbonation. Light finish, lingers with sugary molasses, not very tasty. Feels more like a thin porter. The flavors are too faint, feels overly accessible, and lacks freshness. A Guinness beats the crap out of it. Overall below average stuff.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dense black color with 1 finger colored head. Smell of coffee grinds, roast, cocoa powder and smoke, with a metallic-like note in between. Slightly sweet and roasty taste, with notes of black coffee, bittersweet chocolate and malts. Kinda bitter aftertaste. Although kind of watery beer, I wouldn’t mind another one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint at the pub in Lochaline in June 2016. Pours almost black in colour. Aroma - bags of cocoa and a little espresso. Also some fruity notes. Rather lighter than an average stout, and somewhat watery, but very drinkable for that.

I thought it to be a very good brew...though not as thick as I prefer a stout to be. The can I had was widget loaded and I wasn’t aware...bold pour, nice looking and a fair drink. I would drink it again. It is one of the prettiest "loaded" brews I’ve ever seen. ***I see I have mistakenly rated a can on this entry. I wasn’t aware of what (cask) meant and didn’t realize there was a better choice to review.
