3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, 500ml from Grimsbury Londis, Banbury, Oxon. Black with cream head. There is a roasty, malty, bitter character to this, a fuller flavour than the ABV would suggest. There is some fruitiness, however; I would pitch this closer to a mild than a stout. Reasonable though.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Tesco, consumed at home. Dark brown, high amount of carbonation, very little head. Enticing aroma of roast malt and a bit of coffee. Bittersweet taste, giving way to a bitter/sour taste and a bitter finish. Weak mouthfeel. Lacks the complexity and richness of a really great stout, but still enjoyable enough.
