2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours dark brown with a firm, khaki head atop. Nose shows roasted coffee beans, light bitterness. Taste is pretty much bitter coffee - the kind where you decide instead of going to your local coffee joint, you decide to grab a take away coffee from somewhere different and immediately regret the decision once it touches your lips. Vedry thin and watery mouth feel. Average

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hello, says I, there’s an exotic stout on tap at the local. I’m delighted.
This one was jet black with a thinnish head of almost espresso colour. There is a muted aroma of coffee as it is served a little on the cold side but the flavour is full, oily and just coffee everywhere. This provides the enduring finish that is still present on the palate more than half an hour after. Dangerously enticing, a session would be problematic at this abv, but so, so good.
