Cask at NERAX. Deep chocolate black pour with tan bubbles. Aroma is grassy, cocoa and roast. Bit of coffee too. Taste is initial malty chocolate and hay etc, followed by a complex roast and hop finish. Smooth and full bodied. Not as sublime as the name suggests, but a very nice and complex stout.

750ml bottle from Appellation Wines, shared with jeevan and the Mrs. Pours dark brown, thin beige crumpet of head. Good coffee aromas, pine hops in there too. Taste brings chocolate sweetness, more pine and citrus bitter. Creamy texture and medium to full body. Nice one to finish the night on.

On tap @ Borefts 2013 This is a deep dark brown one, light cloudy in the glass with a bubbly sidesticking beige top. Smells of light tarmac, dark sweet malts, caramel fudge and some chocolate wrapper. Quite enjoyable nose. It’s above average on the carbonation and it has a oily mouthfeel. Light roasted and almost lactose sweet flavors. Quite well bitter with a minty almost toothpaste touch over it. Some biscuits in the finish. Actually a bit interesting and not bad tasting at all. 28.09.2013
