Bottle@Home. Chocolate and blackcurrant aroma. Black, light brown head, good lace. Light sweet, light bitter, chocolate, hints of coffee and blackcurrant. Not too flavourful but well balanced and easy. More Belgian than English.

Bottle. Black pour, tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts and some ash. Flavor is dry, roasted bitterness. Decent body but a bit one-dimensional. More like a porter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good but compared with other stouts a little flat and boring. There’s no intense flavour and the aftertaste goes away in a flash. Mediocre/good.

On draught in Cefe Derat, Utrecht. Fairly chocolatey standard stout, but an overly burnt taste, although not exactly up to Rauchbier standards, downgrades the experience for me. Got the impression the malt was too roasted for my palate.
