3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bouteille de 12 oz. Arômes doux de chocolat au lait. Robe noire, légèrement translucide, très peu de mousse. Assez mince en bouche, une touche sucrée de chocolat au lait accompagne un léger goût de torréfaction. Arrière-goût court et doux. Agréable, sans être particulièrement mémorable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, this beer pours thick black, with a light brown medium head. Great aroma: coffee, with cream and sugar. If there is such a thing as a breakfast beer, this is it. It has a very rich flavor: mocha, toffee, hops. It is not my favorite stout, but it is very nice - worth a second - but you may want to save room - it is very filling.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Old-ish bottle. The aroma is soft, malty, biscuity, caramel, quite sweet for a stout. The flavour is smooth and creamy, very nice. The beer has no real defining character (it may have lost it with age/ transit), but it is a pleasant English stout; not too sweet, not too malty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a great dark brown with unsustainable dark tan head. Nose of molassis, a hint of alcohol, dark roast. Flavor reminds me of kahlua a little bit. Coffee, lactose, anise. Very impressed. I don’t usually care for this style, but this was not bad

Bottle @ The Rake, London.
Pours almost black with slight red edges. A great, creamy, light-beige head on top. Powerful aroma, good milky chocolate, almonds, roasted malts and a little coffee. Fine, lightly creamy mouthfeel. Sweet flavour, lots of milky chocolate and softly roasted malts. A fine, balanced dryness in the finish. Truly a very drinkable beer.
