Draught@Black Heart, London. Deeo ambery brown colour with a small creamy longlasting head. Aroma is caramel, coffee, some resin, mild berries and some nuttiness. Flavour is very similar, but the flavour doesn’t stay for very long in the aftertaste.

5th April 2012
On tap at Tap East. Clear dark red brown beer, Decent pale tan head. Smooth palate with fine stinging carbonation. Mild lacto chocolate malt. Nice sharp generic candy fruits with strawberry most noticeable. Subtle esters and chocolate underneath. Finishes very minerally and sharp with some citric hop coming through. Minerally aftertaste. Strewth! Wasn’t expecting this level of complexity from a modest little 4.2% Irish Stout!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a deep dark brown / near-black with a small beige head. Aroma brings out very dry, lightly roasted malt and toasted bread. Flavour is very dry, with lots of dry bread and a little toasted malt. Very dry and rather lifeless body, finishing a bit metallic and dry bready. Solid attempt at a dry stout, but rather boring overall. Decent.
