500ml bottle into pint glass. Pours opaque black with a smallish tan head. Nose pushes all the right buttons with roasted coffee and dark chocolate notes with subtle dark fruits. Taste is bittersweet dark malts with a medium body and lowish carbonation. A hint of smoke in the aftertaste. Satisfying and drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
[500ml bottle from Dunster Village Stores, Dunster, Somerset] Pours an enticing ruby black with a moderate beige head. Aroma of chocolate and coca-cola. Taste is a let-down - minerals and metals dominate, with the chocolate and roasted malt having to fight their way through. A hint of dry smokiness in the finished is overwhelmed by stickiness. A disappointment after a promising start.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the Euston Tap. Dark brown pour with a light tan, foamy head. Nose is pretty tame, some mild, burnt wood and cocoa. Damn, flavor is quite sweet (though not cloying), with prominent lactic sugars and some mild roast. Medium in body with fine to average carbonation. Sweet, slightly sticky on the finish, some slight chocolate syrup and mild ash. Nice brew.

Cask Conditioned air pressure Euston Tap London. (One of my twelve lost (for now) notes, so this is as well as I remember). A good milk stout which is not too sweet but very drinkable. Light roast and a bit of fruit. Very tasty. I’ve been impressed with the Bristol BF beers at The E Tap
