3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an opaque black with a medium brown-ish head that leaves really good lacing. Nose is of roasted grains, chicory and sweet milk. Taste is of bitter roasted malt, slight ash and coffee. Pretty dry as advertised. Body is medium and carbonation moderate and just there to enhance drinkability. Overall a really drinkable stout without too much ash or sugar, good.
