3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle. Pours almost opaque with a dark, thin crema-like head that disappears quickly. Mild malty aroma. Sweet toast and spice, followed by malty caramel and a mild bitter finish. Smooth and rich without being too heavy, the sweetness, bitterness and malt are in perfect balance to produce an excellent well rounded beer. This is delicious and definitely one to have again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
dark brown colour, huge, dense, stable beige head; aroma and taste of ash, some coffee, maybe cocoa and fruity notes - correct stout - though it would be great to know, why it is named as "Double Stout"

Dry, roasty stout with chocolate notes & a sharp bitter end. A little one dimensional but drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazy very dark brown with airy but stable light tan head. Clear aroma of malt and coffee, with notes of caramel and roast. Bitter, roasty flavor, with notes of coffee and malt, and touches of caramel and hints of hops. Lingering, bitter and roasty aftertaste. A well-balanced and really nice Stout.
