A decent stout. Lovely aroma and appearance on tap @ the Southern in Edinburgh but taste left much to be desired.

watery caramel aromas, looks like a guiness, rich and smooth quite well rounded with caramel flavours. a bit watery but alright...... but it didnt end there oh no, you get further down the pint and all the flavour vanishes and i could have been drinking black evian for all i knew.

Tap at EBBC14, black with a lasting cream head and aromas of roasty coffee. Dry, roasty palate, watery or maybe milky in the middle, then a dry burnt bitterness with a touch of dark cocoa. Intriguing variation on the style.

(draught) pours black in colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of heavy butter and toffee, with notes of cherries, sugar icing and marshmallow. flavour is more marshmallow, toffee and butter, with a hint of caffé latte and vanilla in the tangy finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

Dry stout body with some fruity character and a touch of hops I believe. Good but prefer the traditional dry stout taste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Red Squirrel.
Appearance - opaque black with a nice creamy head. It’s a stout.
Nose - cream a hint of chocolate but generally a bit elusive.
Taste - dried fruits going into cherries.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a dry finish.
Overall - interesting fruity notes. I was expecting their traditional Irish dry stout.
