2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(On tap) Nashville. Completely pitch black and opaque - barely any head. Almost vinous aroma of dried fruit and port wine. Flavours of lightly burned malt and then unfortunately - again - a strong fustiness spoiling what could have been a fairly nice Stout. God, why the f... don’t these people keep their pipes clean? A bloody disgrace. 290306

Draught, Seven Bridges, Jacksonville
Dark brown. Chocolatey aroma. Light body is nice and creamy. Not a ton of flavour beyond the most basic dark malt profile. Disappointing.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer rocks! Pours as black as used motor oil. Medium-sized, creamy, beige head. Great retention and thick, creamy lacing.
Brown tea, charred wood, dark chocolate and cola in the aroma.
Very well-bittered to balance out the deeply roasted, chocolatey, full malt. Also, astringent with notes of charcoal.
Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Lengthy, burnt, crisp, dry finish. World class beer!
