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.

0.5 l bottle from local supermarket. Colour is black as the name suggests and taste has dark chocolate. This is really nice. Well, maybe not in a hot summer day, but during a winter as dessert.
