3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Bottle Shop, Cheadle Hulme 
Pitch black, dense bubbly tan head, good lacing
Aroma of rich dark sweet chocolate, dark malts, dark toffee, very smooth roast, great aroma
Taste of rich smooth dark malts, lots of sweet plain dark chocolate, creamy soft coffee chocolate
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, very smooth, sweet, bit powdery cocoa. Finish as main flavour, sweet dark candy chocolate, some bitter roast
Overall - Lots of chocolate, good flavour initially, but didn’t like it as much with the drinking ... became a bit sickly, too much milk sugar. I’ll certainly try it again though

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,33 l bottle (BB 9/12/14). Clear dark-brown to black with thick, creamy, stable tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate. Not very intense though. Taste is the same with hints of licorice and hazelnut. Light sweetness. Medium to full body, creamy texture, flat carbonation. Finish is just slightly bitter. Pleasant and easy to drink. Could almost be a session beer!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle served outside temp cool at home, poured into an English 1/2 pint chalice. Big milk chocolate and vanilla aroma. Not often I give anything top marks but this black beauty retains it’s beige head and looks so appetising it scores big on appearance. Front of the mouth says vanilla chocolate and blackcurrant, then there’s some bitter liquorice.in the swallow. Silky mouth feel, nothing harsh about this beer. Aftertaste of a smooth cappuccino. Just lovely.

Had this one several years ago and it’s WAY better than I remembered. Very thin for a stout with a nice sweet milk chocolate flavor. One of my favorites.

bottled - typical stout. Nothing much to note. If you like a good stout then go for it.

Good stuff. Not a style I’m familiar with although I love stouts. It has hints of the sweetness of condensed milk. Smooth with the chocolate and coffee notes of a traditional stout.
