2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A chocolate stout with a fairly good gravity and a lot of sweetness. The roast and the malt are good but lacks diversity. I only really detected chocolate, no coffee or toffee. And the chocolate is rather singular.

Quite good and pleasant.....there are worse beers from SABMiller.........
