2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Prince of Wales, Farnborough. 12/08/16. Nil aroma - picking up something sweet but may be my imagination. Dark brown - treacle toffee. Light head, but it’s just a whisp. Light bodied. Flat. Medium sweet, with the slightest bitterness. Malty. Not bad, just a bit bland. Not convinced it’s a stout.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle as Downtown Dark Delight, extra strong bitter. Clear, deep bronze golden-brown body with an average sized off-white head. Aroma is malt, caramel, toast, biscuit and some dry fruit. Flavor is medium sweet, dark, mild roasted malt, toast, caramel, dry fruit and moderate in aftertaste. Quite balanced body and average aftertaste. Decent version of a British strong bitter, not more nor less.
