Keg at Hook Norton Brewery. Smooth - i.e. not massive toast. The colour of a carpeted hook. Liked this Stout a lot.

Dark black non-amber pour. Part of 4 for £6 at Tesco. Dark, full flavoured, full bodied, toasted loveliness. I’d happily drink this all night at this price.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark black-brown coloured beer with a thick and frothy off white head. A light roasted malt aroma. Nutty and caramel. Very dry mouthfeel. The taste carries in from the aroma, loads of nutty caramel malty bitterness, there is a smokiness in the background. The finish is bitter.

Bottled. Pours deep brown, nearly blach with a med. sized tan head, that leaves a fair lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, coffee and chocolate notes. Sweet flavor that ends up dry with a little bitterness. Medium bodied, oily text. and lively carb. A nice stout.

Full bodied almost black stout with a small off white frothy head. Not the most flavoursome despite a healthy roasted aroma.

Big tan head.
Roasted coffee chocolate aroma.
Burnt coffee, charcoal & harsh perfume on the tongue.
Maybe I got a bad bottle...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Mild roastiness, molasses and crème brûlée crust give this Dry Stout some personality within its svelte mouthfeel.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam settles atop the brown-hued black.
-This may be nothing special, but it is impeccably done.
-It’s pretty low on hops. There’s a minty edge, but that’s it.
-Carbonation is a tad fizzy.
-The finish is rather dry with more malt flavour and presence.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown with a nice head. Aroma of roasted malts and some coffee. Mouthfeel is medium. Flavour is everything you expect of a stout, roasted malts, bitter coffee, some sweet dark fruits. The abv is low, but this is a pretty decent stout for the relatively low alcohol by volume.
