2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2013 There’s not much of an aroma to start with, except for a foul whiff of some effluent, which later turns to dried dates, as the beer warms. The beer pours walnut brown and it looks great in the glass. Black, with a creamy head. Flavours of roast malts, a bit of chocolate and plenty of ash. No fruitiness detected. More like a Schwarzbier. Thin bodied, it is a pleasant drink, this Welsh dark, but I’d like to try their different stouts for a comparison.

Rich chocolaty stout, with a slight sweetness, but without the heavy alcohol kick of many chocolate stouts.

50 cl bottle (4,1%) @ home. Rated on 17.10.2009
Aroma is quite light with some coffee, roasted notes and semi‐dark chocolate. Flavour is slightly sour with coffee, some cocoa and dark chocolate. A bit watery palate. Well roasted malt in the finish. Closer to a porter than mild ale.

Aroma is slightly sweet with roasted notes, chocolate, coffee and nuts. Flavour has chocolate, nuts, some roasted notes. Finishes with toffee typical to English ales. Pleasant and smooth, better than I remembered.
