2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very dark musty aroma, the taste is less promising and the palate isnít that full. However, the aroma makes up for it. Small beige head, slightly see-through body.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml. bottle from Bierhalle Deconinck. BBF 08/02/2015. Red copper, dark mahogany, blackish brown with basically no head. Smells like rotting dark fruits, molasses, old furniture and liquorish, reminiscent of Belgian beer in some ways. Taste is deep mix of liquorish, old furniture and molasses, Belgian touches, rotting fruits, bitter herbal & leaves aftertastes (not very heavy). Surprisingly thick body, cough syrup & liquorish. There is almost something Christmas / Belgian to it. There is also too much rotting fruit, leaves, herbs etc. for my taste. I feel like I am trying too hard to like Fullerís. Feels stronger than its ABV & feels like it has some age on it as well.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pitch black with a dark head.
Smell is wood, sourwood and liquorice, dominated by apple fruitiness. Almost chlorine-like.
Taste is full and n oily, much more than the smell suggests. Nice bitterness and a wholesome breadiness. Beautiful balance.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very dark brown, going on black, with a beige head. Aromas of roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. The taste is of coffee, chocolate and red berries. Nice dry finish without being too astringent or bitter. This is a really good example of what a stout should be. The flavours are superb and there is a really good balance. Very high drinkability. It demonstrates that a beer does not be strong to have complexity and a great taste. One of my favourites - even the label featuring a black London cab is great!
