3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This bottle I had was bottled almost exactly a year ago. Itís a pitch black color with a nice brown head that goes away quick. The aroma isnít strong, but it smells like vanilla with hints of caramel. Itíd a lot smoother to drink than a normal stout which is a little weird. It tastes like vanilla and chocolate caramel(kinda) with of course the stouty flavor. Itís pretty good but not AMAZING.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark brown with a fairly creamy off white head which lingers.....aroma of chocolate, touch of vanilla, lactose?......taste is a bit thin, sweetness, slight vanilla, very slight wood notes....mostly just sweetness coming through. Was hoping for a bit more.

Bottle at Googies Folkestone. Black beer lasting tan head. Chocolate stout aroma. Yes so me oak comes through. Not much vanilla. Mostly a woody flavour from the barrel . Yes some sweetness. Not overly lactose. Decent. Not amazing. Too cold and fizzy ok.

A decent stout, not overly complex but very easy to drink. The oak is not very pronounced, canít really tell itís there at all.
