Good all round stout. Nice aroma of sweet malt and chocolate. Appearance nothing special with a very dark brown black colour, quite light with a tan head. The taste is a mix between sweet chocolate and bitter coffee. Works well with a good balance. Palate is smooth and quite light for a stout. Overall very good and drinkable.

This is a cool little stout , packed with flavour but in a compact , snug kinda way. I can’t put my glass down to actually reflect some constructive shit to say ,cause its so eazy to sink and dig. Nice ash, roast, chocolate malt nose; Flavours of roasted bitterness. Bitter /sweet chocolate ...coffee bean bitting tanginess . Some chewey,meaty cloying vibez in the dry finish.
Good honest session stout. A manly beer.

Tasted 2010-04-16. Bottle. Pours dark brown - almost black - with light brown head. Aroma of cocoa, coffee, vanilla and brown sugar. Bitter sweet taste plus a hint off tobacco. Very sweet for this style. One might call it a girl stout, but it IS odd, how I - a man - like a girl stout so much.
