3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle reviewed on xmas eve. As the name suggests its black in appearance with a thin off white head. Kind of burnt smoky aroma which is quite pleasant on winterís night. The taste is dry, mildly hoppy with liquorice and chocolate notes mostly present. On the palate it isnít too creamy unlike a number of other stouts and is actually quite thin. A decent sessionable beer.

Prezentuje się nieźle. W aromacie i w smaku dominuje paloność, w tle czekolada i trochę niezbyt mocnej kawy. Mało ciała, wodniste, lekkie.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at The Haven, 9/9/16.
Clear, dark mahogany with crimson/magenta highlights and a beige head atop, medium-sized and showing moderate retention.
Not a ton going on in the nose, though conversely, itís not flawed either. Lightly lactic roast character mixes with mineral water, hints of vanilla and a gentle, fairly playful fruitiness (apples, strawberries, etc...). No alcohol noted.
Very easygoing, watery, dry stout with watery coffee notes, very light chocolate, mild fruitiness and hints of vanilla and straw. Clean and easy-drinking with a touch of acidity on the finish.

500ml bottle @ Loch Fyne, Shrewsbury. Pours black, very thin off-white head that dissipates to nothing. Aroma presents some cocoa, lightly sweet malts, treacle. Taste continues with a fairly light mouthfeel, light roast, pleasant sweetness, a little oily. Not bad, a good table stout.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
First smell after popping the cap is roasted coffee but after pouring it into a glass that somewhat fades. The beer is very dark as expected and the foam is thick when pouring but fades away rather quickly. The taste is kinda smoky with hints of coffee and nuts. Itís not bitter as i expected and leaves a pretty mellow aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pitch black colored, creamy beige-tan head, good lasting. Aroma is of chocolate, some roasted malt, coffee. Taste is light+ sweet malt, chocolate and coffee, some roasted malt, light+ bitterness, dry finish. Light+ bodied, soft carbonation, thinnish. Light and drinkable yet there is enough flavor for enjoyment. I can see myself quaffing a few of these.
