3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dry stout body with some fruity character and a touch of hops I believe. Good but prefer the traditional dry stout taste.

Flavour is medium, dry roast malt, balanced with a good dose of English hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth, smooth, smooth. Not much carbonation. Hints of coffee in the finish. Would like to try from the cask.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Porterhouse Cork. Pours a lovely dark cloudy brown with a thinnish tan head that remains for duration of pint. Aroma is quite prominent for a nitroed stout, with strong chocolate and coffee hints. Taste is a nice medium sweetness followed by a medium roasty bitterness - roasted malts, coffee and a hint of chocolate are present. Palate is quite dry, full bodied, and offers a lingering roasty bitterness. Quite a good deal better than I remembered.

Sample at the brewpub. Pours flat black with a medium creamy tan head that recedes slowly. Patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt and coffee. Light-bodied with a roasty character of coffee and malt, plus a touch of dark chocolate. The finish is sweet with a chocolate malt aftertaste. Decent all around.
