Lots of burnt malt, leather and earth in the smell. Medium body, with notes of milk and coffee in the taste. Great stout!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled Jan 2014. Poured into snifter. Black, a cm of dense foamy brown head. Aroma is very yeasty, chocolate, slight berry. Body is medium, low carbonation, pretty foamy in the mouth. Taste is light coffee, caramel, smoke, soft bitterness, slightly sour yeasty character. Subdued flavours, all balancing each other out. Very nice - shows that a stout doesn’t have to blow your head off to be good.

12oz bottle shared by Ed. Poured a deeper black body with a big bubbly head of deep beige. Aroma is chocolate and vanilla, well done toast, seems like a light touch of caramel. Flavor is nice and roasty, darker chocolate, vanilla, dark toast. Solid beer.

This beer is a medium stout that is dark brown with has strong flavors of coffee. It is very tasty, but I’m not typcially a big fan of coffee flavored beers.
