4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is refined but not very intense. Foam is coloured caramel, but not standing long. Taste is heavy, smocks with a charcoal bitter finish rather than hoppy sourness. Palate is quite long but bitter. Very much within the heavy Irish stout style, no flower or fine fragrance that can be found in some.

Poured from bottle. Description says aroma of spruce, but seems more like coffee and chocolate to me. Pours black with tan head. Has a light bitter taste. Medium body, oily texture, with a dry finish. Very nice stout and pretty smooth for 9%.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Nose is roast, slight vanilla, oak, spice, and as promised, spruce. Taste is roast, spice, nut, coco with an undercurrent of cherry and cola leading to a more traditional roasted malt stout finish with a spritz of sweetness.
A good stout that has real depth of taste.
