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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.5l bottle from British Store. Black colour as you expect from a beer with such a name. Head is moderate, looks foamy, aroma is moderately roasted, taste is sweet-roasted. The beer itself is a light stout, palate is a bit too lively for me, but otherwise nice. A bit thin, though. Taste is moderately roasted, a bit on the sweet side. Some nice sourish character detectable in the end. Roasted-bitter aftertaste with a not very nice earthy character in the background. Has a somewhat coke-like taste and character which I usually do not like. Also, quite one-sided. A typical one-timer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Pours a pitch black colour, topped with a medium sized beige head. Not much retention to speak of. Chalky nose initially, minimal roasty presence and thatís it. Taste is sweet, mildly roasty with very pleasant chocolate, easy to pick up. Light body, sparkly texture. Some coffee in the aftertaste. Not bad.
