On tap at The Black Sheep, pours black with a small tan head. Nose brings out dry oats upfront - very dry and bitter. Flavour is quite rich and robust, with oats, dry cocoa and a light bitterness. Quite full-bodied and well-balanced. Very good stuff.

The beer starts smooth and creamy. Roasted chocolate in the mainpart, slightly toffee-sweet. The aftertaste is smooth, chocolate with hints of espresso, nicely smooth roasted. In the last end there is a nice bitterness, that harmonises ideal with the rest of the roasted chocolate-flavour.
Very nice Sweet Stout! --> 13/13/14/14

Bottle pour into a wine glass. The beer is a dark brown with a khaki head of foam. The aroma has ashy chocolate with some caramel peaking through. Maybe some raisin as well. The taste is moderately sweet. The chocolate comes through nicely. Lighter to medium body and medium to higher carbonation. Very nice beer.
