3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown. Some reddish tinges when held up to the light. Smallish tan coloured head. A little lacing as it falls away. Decent aromas of roasted malt, sweet light caramel and perhaps a little espresso coffee. Noce. Taste is dominate by a slightly sour bitter finish thanks to the roasted malt. Quite thin mouthfeel. Not the best stout but you could certainly knock back a couple.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle) Pours black with a medium sized, light brown head. The aroma reminds me of new skateboard wheels (a distinct smell from my childhood) alongside chocolate and blackberries. Undertones of dry cocoa roast, dark caramel, vanilla, smoke, dark fruits, grassy hops and hints of milk. Nice, round and friendly nose. The flavour light sweet to dry, light to medium bitter and light sourish. Tones of chocolate, coffee, dark berries, smoke, light asphalt and dark bread. The mouthfeel is soft, clean and light tart with a light to medium carbonation. The finish is medium tart with dry roast and grassy hops. Near medium bodied.
