3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Woody brown, thin off white head. Light roast, composty nose. Gurgles of half brewed coffee from over roasted beans - dank pillow case milky malt, crubs of sweetness. Again clean, simple carbonation but this time maybe leaves a little to be desired. Creamy but watery at the same time. Finishes with a fine bitterness and linger of weak choc sweetness.

The first stout for ages I really enjoyed. Bit thin with some black coffee, some malt and roasted grain. Sweetish moments and high drinkability. Wonderful.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Culchiem - many, many thanks for my first Northern Ireland tick, Mel :-)! The stout pours out of the (beautiful) bottle in a deep black colour with no real head and medium body. Aroma of malt, roast and espresso. Taste of light malt, chocolate, nuts, mild coffee and dark grains. Light watery and weak finish. Easy drinkable, nice - but just that touch too watery and thin for my taste. Not bad though.
