Bottle. It pours a huge, light tan head over a next to black body. Licorice, roasted malts, dark chocolate, cellar hints and some herbal hints in the aroma. Lots of licorice in the flavor, with alcohol, almond essence, roasted malts, herbal hints and dark chocolate. Full body, quite a lot of carbonation. Lasting finish with herbs, dark chocolate, bitterness and alcohol. Some solvent going on too, all the way. A bit unclean this one, but with some qualities. 140816

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark colored pour, tan head. Smell is smokey, chocolate, coffee, and slightly hoppy. Taste is sweet, creamy, mild. Not too thick; no real alcohol burn either. Not a bad stout, but I am really not a fan of English beers other than some of the mass produced ones.
