4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
275ml bottle from wine shop in Brighton. Bloody gorgeous. Black as hell - and deeply delicious. Soft as pillows, creamy stout with dark bitter notes. Splendid array of flavours. This is easy drinking beer, inviting, almost compelling, and ends too soon. I love this beer with a passion, and want to die drinking it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle (Bottle Shop, Canterbury)
Very dark, a brief dark head. Burnt caramelised aroma. Toffee retronasals. Similar taste, but fuller and richer than even the aroma foretells. Sweetish, a little sticky. Some yeastiness too. Has a nice bitter bite. Could probably do with some aging to reduce the sugariness. However, it’s a nice caramelly sipper.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Opaque solid black that no light passes through. No tint and a light thin brown frothy head. Smells of a deep rich roasted malt with a strong burnt caramel, chocolate notes. Also soy berry and liquorice elements. Full smooth oily body. Flat. Sweet chocolaty roast coffee wood burnt taste that moves to a bitter dry malty alcohol liquorice finish. It feels a bit old fashioned and not refined. A few years in a cellar would clear this alcohol taste up.

[275ml bottle, the Bottle Shop, Canterbury] Black, thin beige lacing. Slightly chalky, pungent aroma. Primary flavour is vegemite - huge umami component. Meaty. Coffee at the end. Despite all that, it’s quite soft in terms of mouthfeel - interesting stuff

Thanks Rich for sharing this bottle. Pours a dark brown colour with a fair tan head. Aroma of caramel, dark chocolate and alcohol. Mildly bitter with soy sauce and Marmite flavours dominating. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel.
