Black (VERY black) beer eith a beige head and a chocolate malt aroma. The initial taste is actually every so slightly watery somehow but it really builds up. Rich, malty, chocolatey. A lovely stout and goes down very easy.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Union Tavern near Westbourne Park, medium sample, served in a half pint glass. Pours a dark brown beer with a small brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, bit molasses. Quite typical dry stout I would say, focusing mainly no dark roast. Slight blackcurrant fruity notes perhaps. Medium bitter in taste, not much sweetness. Bit one-dimensional, but ok.
