Nice dark brown color with minimal brown head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, flakes, roasted malt. Sweet nose. Medium body. Taste is a bit sweet, one would expect more from the sweet nose, and it’s followed by just a little bitterness. Really good one.

Bottle from the Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Pours black with a nice tan head. Some nice roast flavour in this. Notes of chocolate and coffee. To me the mouthfeel is pretty thin and watery and lets it down somewhat.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black beer with a thin beige head. Light smell of chocolate and malt. Flavour follows suit but there’s a strong, tangy fruit element as well. Fortunately this doesn’t blow the more traditional stout elements out altogether. Nicely balanced and really tasty.
