3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured this one into an English pint glass. It’s appearance is very dark with a slight ruby red hugh. The aroma is rosted oats and carmal. The tast is caramel and rosted oats also. On the palate it is slightly oily with a little carbonation across the tongue. Overall I like this one it may be a little on the sweet side but not overly sweet.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep black with just a hint of a russet colour in the dimple of the glass. Off-white head that disappears quickly. Definite roasty, chocolate aromas which make themselves apparent upon tasting. It starts out chocolate and sweet and then cools and becomes a little bit bitter. The finish returns to that chocolaty sweetness. A pleasant enough beer to go back for seconds, so definite tick in the box for me.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pour black, with an off-white head. Really good looking.
The aoma is heavy on the chokolate and coffee side, so it is a bit off balance.
The palate is watery, and there is a lot of fizzy co2.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle. Pours opaque black with a cappuccino head - looks great! The nose is intense coffee. The taste has coffee and bitter chocolate. The palate is medium to big in structure and texture and there is a slightly bitter rather than creamy finish. Overall, a great stout.
