Draught at Bungalow. Pitch black, fine foamy tan head. Muted aromas of dark chocolate, burnt malts. Medium, sedate body, with a rich aftertaste. Coffee and nuts- perhaps a caffe latte vibe. Nicely rounded and warming.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
04/04/2014 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Nera, densa, schiuma biancastra sporca media. Al naso sentori di malti tostati, caffé, cioccolato fondente 90%, sentori di bruciato, non male. In bocca è decisamente secca, di discreta sostanza, nonostante la facile beva, caffettosa, leggero cioccolato fondente 90%, amara nel finale. Corpo è esile, leggermente watery, carbonazione bassa. Discreta.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle pours black in color with a finger of beige head that retains well and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark roasted malts with some hints of coffee and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt bitterness balanced with chocolate malty sweetness with very little hop presence. Body is a little thin for the style and carbonation is light. Would be an excellent stout if it had more fullness to the body, but still a very enjoyable brew.
