3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ The Train Tasting, Pt II. The pour’s deep brown with a small off-white head. Big vanilla and toffee on the nose. Some rocky road fudge. The taste is bear claw donut. Quite sweet. More vanilla and toffee. Rich roasted nut provides a little balance. Earthy chocolate. Boozy finish. Full and rich. Overall, not bad stuff. Nowhere close to Brodies’ top-tier efforts, however.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Luvian’s. Meh... bit sad about this one. Had several top drawer Brodies recently inc the Big Mofo Mikkeller collab stout, and this isn’t in the same league. Maybe quite young still? Absolutely drinkable though, smooth and gentle for it’s abv. High carbonation - fizzy for style. No major standout characteristics though. Coffee, malts, very light booze. Decent stout.
