Bottle. - Very roasty nose, with a slight backround of coffee. The mouthfeel is satisfyingly soft, with loads of bittersweet, dry malty flavours, not much aftertaste however. pleasently easy drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap & bottled. Good, hard burnt flavours and aromas, plus toffee and a bit of hops as well as a dash of anise. Fairly sweet, and not really such a dark black as I’ve come to expect from serious stouts. Not nearly as thick as the brewery makes out, but pretty decent overall. The real killer is the head - very thin, very small, very short duration, very detergenty. How people can rate this higher than it’s aged version or the Wig and Pen Velvet Cream Stout I’ll never know.

Dark brown/black with some creamy head. Lots of roastiness going on here. Coffee, toffee, and hops are present on the tongue as well. Medium bodied, very drinkable. Could be a session stout. I was surprised by this beer, in a good way.

(on bottle) Beemn looking at these brews in the shop for a while, but I don´t know, the label looks cheap, so it wasen´t ´ntil I had it offered for free at tried it. Who cheap now?
One black MF, this one, totally with a beige head. Aroma of sweet liquorice and caramel, soft. Also a soft foamy mouthfeel, with a hard coffee-bitter and english liqourice taste. Water finish, biurnt. Refreshing, but afer half a pour, it sure turns bitter and harsh on you. A bit too much for me.
