3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, very dark brown pour with garnet edges and a 3 finger, chunky tan head. Aroma is nutty, roasty and burnt fried bread, planty hops and interesting earthy, fruity notes. Flavor is roasted nuts, roast, char (something like normal roasty char, but with an underlying, though barely noticeable burnt vegetable oil taste), burnt peanuts, light char, light planty and herbal hops, smoke and some fruity and berry-like notes. Finishes with roast, char, leather, earth and fruity notes. Light body, dry slightly chalky feel throughout with a light carbonation. Pretty tasty, nice roasty kick for a 4.5% stout

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Uma típica dry stout. Escura, transparente, com ótima formação de espuma, média persistência. Aroma marcante de café e malte torrado, chocolate. Sabor acompanhando o aroma, com final seco, persistência do torrado e amargor moderado. O corpo e carbonatação média dão uma ótima drinkability.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Noire, grosse carbo, collet moyen de fine bulles, persistant.
Aromes peu puissant, chocolat, café, pain
Mousse cremeuse a souhait, vive et mince a l’attaque, l’interret se porte sur la finale persistante bien café et bien seche.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from milk store. Pours clear dark brown with light beige head. Faint nose of roast, berries, chocolate. Light body, nice and bitter with watery palate and a slightly toasty finish. Good enough for a low abv stout but a bit watery for my tastes.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Straightforward example of the genre.
A bit lackluster in aroma and taste to be honest, but very easy to drink.

Bottle from Cool Wine 140416. It's heading towards stout weather so I'm getting in early. Smooth burnt flavours fill the mouth. Super dark in colour with a slight head. Hints of chocolate and vanilla in the finish.

Draught.pours almost black with small beige head. Aromas od roasted malts, light roastiness, some caramel and biscuits. In taste medium sweet with dry and lightly bitter and acidic finish. Nothing shocking but perfect example of english beer to drink in huge amounts in pub.
