4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle. There is a seriously deep tan head of thick foam. The beer itself is teak to black in colour with mildly bitter dark chocolate and roasted malt aromas. Sweet and bitter in the mouth at the same time, makes for a stout that is easy to drink and makes you want to o back for more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle thanks to unstablefable. Pours opaque black with a decent head which disappears a bit quick. The nose has something slightly smokey/earthy with a slight creamy but not the sweet creamy notes I was expecting. The taste has a real smokiness with the liquorice thing again. The palate is medium bodied at least with a dry but medium textured with a dry and quite elegant finish. Overall, I don’t think this is a milk stout, maybe closer to a dry stout. It’s good though!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Reddish brown black, thin beige head with some lacing as it fades to a thin ring. Nice brooding dark chocolate nose, restrained smoky coffee, hot cocoa, soft roast barley. Dark chocolate, touch of vanilla, burnt toast, roast barley, very soft vegetal lacto. Prominent roasty coffee bitterness. Slight carbonation prickle, slightly thinner body than expected. Straightforward but tasty.
