3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Buxton Tap House, pours black with a small tan head. Nose brings out cocoa, urinal cakes, and roasted malt. Flavour is thankfully better, with none of the urinal cakes, with notes of roasted malt, cocoa powder, and a touch of coffee. Full-bodied, with a roasty finish. Very good stout, not quite as good as Tsar.

Pours pitch black color with a medium sized beige head. A very nice roasty and malty aroma with coffee and cocoa, some caramel also. Very creamy palate with a roasty malty flavor, caramel malts, dry cocoa powder and faint vanilla notes also. Full bodied with a soft carbonation. A very refined and tasty brew indeed.

Piękna, trwała, brązowa, drobnopęcherzykowa piana. Ładnie oblepia szkło. Piwo ciemne, prawie czarne, zupełnie nieprzejrzyste. W zapachu kawa i palone słody. W smau lekka kwaskowośc od ciemnych słodów. Piwo pełne, treściwe. Alkohol dobrze zamaskowany, chociaż przyjemnie rogrzewa.
