3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black pour with a quick dissipating brown head. Aroma is lots of roast - coffee, toast, very subtle dark fruits. Medium bodied, lighter mouth feel than expected. Flavour is coffee dominant, with burnt malts, vanilla, coconut. Finish is dark, bitter coffee. I actually like the fact that this stout isn’t really big, or sticky, which lends to the other flavours and makes it easier to drink. Quite enjoyable.
