Bottle, 5.8% at KØ16. Fruity aroma, hint of liquorice. Almost black colour, seems clear. Good stable dark brown head. The flavour is fruity with a mild liquorice, rather anonymous but not bad, I guess.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml Bottle from Coppers, Gosforth, £3.19/pint.
Pours near black with a very thin, tan head. The nose has sweet grainy notes and light smoke. The flavour takes the smokiness up a notch, like well-fried bacon mixed with nut. The flavour complexity continues into a yeasty finish with tart, cherry bitterness presenting itself increasingly as the beer goes down, as well as creamy chocolate notes. A good, complex stout.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nothing remarkable about this stout, but at the same time, not unpleasant either. Very nice dark colour, good aroma. Very drinkable for a stout.
