3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown with tan soap suddish head. Hints of ripe fruit in the aroma, charcoal, yeast. Mixed bag really. Low carbonation so thickish texture. Taste is burnt wood, coffee dregs , fag-end (but in a good way) with some sweetness throw in. A mild stout that’s quite pleasant.
