3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very strong roast greets the nose with nutty underlying malt character. Dark brown body is topped by a low but lasting off white head that lasts well. Very dry and drinkable flavour has a strong raosted bitterness and some light nutty and cocoa character. Medium light body with creamy texture and moderate to strong carbonation that really awakens the palate. Sampled on tap at the Alibi room with Sammy.

Alibi Room with Tigglmtl, and so a surprisingly good stout that is underated. Great roast coffee aroma. Creamy medium mouthfeel taste, very fresh (and the all the difference) and roasty coffee. Lacey. Above average carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark brown with no head to speak of and a faint, earthy chocolaty aroma with slight roasted notes. Watery, earthy brown malt taste, hint of roastiness, thin body, somewhat disappointing. Odd bit of trivia: Lush uses this beer in a shampoo. Go figgur! Sampled at the GCBF.

Crannog’s innocent looking stout has something which isn’t innocent at all: drinkability.
Heavy, silky Italian coffee flavour, with a fine almost...chocolate-like nose. 5.2% placket, relaxed drink...innocence and mayhem at once.
