3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Freshly ground coffee aroma, not too strong, balanced with roasted malts. This is the beans-like coffee not the instant cheap blend from supermarket. Medium body, drinkable but 33cl bottle would be enough for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Vino Wines. Black body with a thin tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma of coffee grounds, brambles and dirt. Flavour of espresso, earth and plum. Medium body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Soft carbonation. A rich, flavoursome Stout, especially considering the ABV. It’s a bit watery, but aside from that it’s very good. Possibly better suited to cask.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly chilled bottle at a BYOB, BB Dec 2015. Black, no head. Smell - smoke and coffee. Body is light with medium carbonation. Taste - very ashy, semi-sweet with noticeable coffee. Finish is yeasty, watery with no bitterness. The body isn’t great and there is something watery and sickly about the flavour. It’s OK overall though.

Fresh and light espresso stout. Never complex, but rather drinkable stout. Misses something special but never bad.
