3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from a newsagent in Uxbridge. Deep brown pour with some hints of ruby and a thin, but consistent carbonation. Soft caramel and molasses in the nose, along with some choc and char. Off to a good start. Body is a bit on the thin side, but has a nice consistency - milky with some grit, appropriate to style. Slight fruitiness emerges but generally tastes quite intensely roasty. Good thing, since I enjoy that flavor for a dry stout.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with a rich, frothy cocoa head. Laces the glass quite thick. Aroma is cocoa and sharp roasted malt. The beer has a dark roasted malt flavor and is thin and almost watery in body. You have to let this beer warm up a bit to enjoy it. Then some chocolate flavors cut through the dark roasted malt. And the body thickens a lot. The finish is slightly creamy dark roasted malt. Pretty ok... I guess, no, its just average, like most English wares.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: Milk chocolate, coffee and tootsie roll.
Appearance: Black with a quickly fading milk chocolate head.
Flavor: Roasted grain, malt with a firm bitter finish.
Palate: Medium to full bodied with low to moderate carbonation.
Overall: Amazing aroma, but the flavor does not live up to it. Still a very nice roasty, bitter stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Jet black pour with big chocolate milk head. Bright light shined behind it barely got through at all. Aroma is not especially strong, roasted malt and a little coffee. Taste is similar, but fuller. Creamy, full body. Overall, it was a more flavourful Guinness.
