4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Black beer with a thick, brown head. Chocolatey malt aroma with the muscovado sugar quality mentioned in the description. Tastes of rich milk chocolate, a mix of fruit, molasses, a light tanginess both in the initial flavour and the aftertaste and just a hint of fizz to cut through what is otherwise an incredibly rich, full-bodied stout. It’s about as close as you could expect a beer to come to having a mouthful of cake and it’s absolutely superb.

Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Earlsdon, Coventry consumed at dad’s (shared with dad) Kilburn, Derbyshire, Friday 9th September 2016 Pours black as yer like, really deep pitch black with a tan head. The nose displays molasses, black treacle, chocolate (milk) and cocoa. There are similar things going on in the mouth, creamy, the strength is very well hidden, a little indulgent, good but not great, however we liked it. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov14 3.7
