500ml bottle - I quite like this one. Black with a healthy beige foam that laces all the way through. The aroma has roasted malts and blackberries and a bit of coffee lurking there. A strong rich malty taste with chocolate and burnt toast and more rich fruits. A good body and a long finish. Slick and tasty. A very decent brew.

Full bodied stout that makes it a great session ale, but not high or aroma or taste. Still worthy though.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A better than average English stout. Not overwhelming in any respect but balanced with a reserved chocolatey taste. A bit watery for my taste.
