Many thanks to bobinlondon for the bottle!! Pours a super dark brown with a tan head. The smell is dark, roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee. The taste is dark an toasty malt, bitter dark chocolate, mild coffee ending very dry and toasty. Light in body with course carbonation...not very elegant. Overall just OK.

Bottle, 500ml. Black colour with a small white head. Aroma has burnt notes but not much else. Flavour is very malty with smooth dark chocolate notes, some bread notes as well. A sweet, smooth finish. Very tasty.

In a bottle from Beers of Europe. Darkish black brown colour. Quite high carbonation. Some roasty flavours. Not overly dry, sweetish malts. Decent level of hop bitterness. A pleasant stout; would guess mouthfeel better on draught.

Bottle. Musty smell. Black. Not much head. Thin flavour disappoints. Pretty poor really, why bother?

Bottle from Morrisons, pours a deep rich dark brown which is almost black with small tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, slight woodsmoke, light dark fruits and a touch of chocolate. Taste is lightly sweet and medium bitter, long lasting finish. Smooth and slightly slick though thin feel in the mouth. A nice stout.

Marrón muy oscura casi negra. Un dedo de espuma beige. Aroma a humo, algo rancio al principio. Cuerpo medio algo acuosa. Sabor muy agradable, primero ahumada, pronto suave caramelo de toffe, para acabar seca con un postgusto amargo duradero.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Pours a red-black colour with a tight head. Aroma of rich, roasted malt and coffee. Taste is slightly sweet, then nicely dry and bitter. More dry bitterness to follow with a dusty, almost smoky feel. Plain and dry stout that is nonetheless satisfying. A very nice beer.
