3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Near black beer, pours a dense beige head.
Good nose packed full of tropical fruity & spicy hop, with roasted notes of espresso & dark chocolate in the mix.
Full bodied, quite rich, smooth carbonation.
Plenty to enjoy on the palate - chocolate malts, solid hop presence, good bitterness on a long finish.
Solid beer, surely itís a Black IPA!? Oh well, still good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a moderate beige head, which lasts well and leaves decent lacing. Milk chocolate, hints of coffee, savoury nutty notes and faint floral hops make up the aroma. Mild spice hops up front give way to black coffee and cocoa in the mid-palate. Nutty notes give the finish a pleasantly savoury feel. This is not the most groundbreaking stout around, but it is pretty enjoyable nevertheless, and quite good on a rainy night.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from regional. Nice art. Not much to report. More subtle than other GP beers I have sampled. A pretty user friendly stout; rich with very low key hints of choc and coffee.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice stout. Coffee and roast but there is a more complex something in there. Some smokiness and red wine like flavours? Was very nice regardless.
