Black, ruby glow at the edges, zero head; aroma is treacly, a bit solvent-like; taste is roast malt, dark chocolate, raisins; bitter; very smooth; a good stout which punches way above its weight.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Una stout come si deve,senza gran ricami è perfetta e leggerissima da bere nonostante la presenza abbastanza massiccia di malti tostati e un ricamo di caffè, con una punta di affumicato appena percettibile la rendono una classica stout per qualsiasi occasione,veramente buona

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose is coffee, a little smoke, a little cream. Taste is strongly of burnt coffee, with smoke and a touch of cream leading to a very dry earthy finish. Mouthfeel is a little too thin.
It’s a very good example of an English stout, it’s just hard to get too excited about.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Berkeley Bowl - West. Pours very dark brown with no head. Aroma is treacle with coffee notes. Med body. Thins as the mild carbonation departs. Flavor is treacle, dark malt, a little coffee. There might be some smoky notes. Finishes a little earthy, and surprising dry, considering the treacle I thought I was experiencing. Has strong flavor for 4.1 ABV.
