Bottle Coppers Newcastle. Pours deep inky black, with a tan head. Licquorice and roast malt in abundance, rich fruit flavour, with chocolate and licquorice notes. Expected a thicker body for this abv, but that doesn’t detract from a very high quality stout. Quite vineous late on.

Really good stout, the bottle has it as an imperial stout, which is more accurate.. Coffee and chocolate aromas, nice liquorice finish, if the abv was a couple of % higher, this would have a fuller mouthfeel, and be a world class beer.
