4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle. huge chocolate and cocoa in the nose with some slight booze. pours a dark brown with a light brown head that dissipates quickly with excellent lacing. taste is nothing short of phenomenal. a smooth and elegant silky stout with just the perfect balance of base beer and barrel. seriously, this may be better than parabola. a little thin, but it is only 8.5%. A slight tartness that detracts from the smoothness as it warms but otherwise one of the best FW beers I have had.

Bottle at Bruce’s Birthday batch @Craft Islington. Thanks to the birthday boy! It pours darkest brown with a small beige head. The nose is roasted malt, dark chocolate, toast, oak, caramel, toasted coconut and vanilla. The taste is roasted malt, toast, cocoa, earth, wood, toasted coconut, vanilla, light alcohol and dried fruits with a dry, roasty finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth, tasty and rather drinkable. Another winner from FW.
