3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home - poured black (well, very dark brown) - none of the ruby colouration seen with other stouts - with tan frothy head that dissipated but left tracing on the glass. Aroma - very remininscent of chocolate (70% cocoa of course - not milk). Flavour is chocolate and espresso coffee - with full, mellow mouthfell. Same again, please!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours jet black with a whipped tan head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, peanut shells, and caramel. Flavor is roasty with mild, fruity yeast esters. The finish is decidedly dry and roasty with chocolate and espresso. The mouthfeel can only be described as powdery. This is a classic for a reason.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Black pour, thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, some ripe dark fruits, sugary malts, caramel and some fruity hops. Flavor is slightly bitter, nice and sweet, a very decent body for the low ABV and a great balance. Well drinkable stout. Nice one.
