jjsint (646) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2014
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.
