On tap at the Harp, Chandos place 23 Jan 14. I was quite underwhelmed by this stout. It looks and pours the part of a classic smooth stout, but everything from the smell to the taste and finish was quite thin. Individual tastes were hard to distinguish, and not prominent enough. All that being said, this was still a nice inoffensive and individual brew, which was easily drinkable.
