3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Craft Beer Co - Islington on 17th November 2012. Deep ruby with creamy coloured head and lacing especially at first. Rich fruity roasty aroma with coffee. Intense coffee flavours and roastiness in-mouth. Rich coffee and fruitiness meet in a pleasant finish, on a slightly grainy texture and medium body. Lovely beer.

Pours a really dark brown almost black with a small tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is much the same. Dry finish with a medium body. Overall a nice beer but was hoping for a more fuller body to it.

Black beer, brown head that reduced from being quite thick to thin and filmy. Bitter, coffee aroma. Bitter coffee in the taste as well, though there’s a touch of fruit up front to lend it a bit of sweetness and in the aftertaste there’s a slightly creamy quality. Nice rich, earthy stout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium brown head. Opaque black body. Earthy mealy cold coffee aroma. Sweet earthy cold coffee taste with resiny notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel, slightly flat. Dryish roasty fruity aftertaste with earthy mealy notes. A little bit lacking in bitterness. Nice, though. (0.5l bottle, from odd bins, Edinburgh.)
