2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can found at an ethnic supermarket in Stockwell. The pourís deep brown with a massive tan head. The nose is roasted malt and light chocolate milk sweetness. A bit of ash. The taste is light dusty nuts, some milk chocolate. Smooth coffee. Pretty simple, subdued flavors. Light, watery body. Overall, fairly unremarkable. Not particularly flavorful, inoffensive.

Small and unremarkable much like the author of this. Itís a bit like having a stout shandy, which is not something I would ever seek out. Not unpleasant and will make a serviceable midweek snifter after a main event. Mr Gorman used to drink this. He always seemed a man of some taste. Evidently not. Move on.

Low alcohol stout with a nice roasted malt aroma, but not carried through too well into the taste, but it does maintain a decent texture.

0.33l can. This one pours a deep brown - near black actually, body under a big and almost creamy chocolate-head. On the nose I get tones of sweet chocolate and thin roasted malts. A hint of something burned as well, but isís all in all not a massive aroma bomb this. Itís quite sweet and watery in flavor, thin roastiness with a really present burned and almost ashy finish and aftertaste. A bit minerally and dry as well in the finish. Easy drinking, but not to impressive really. 02.08.2012

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. 2.8%. Jet black with a large bubbly tan head with okay retention. Aroma is roasty, fruity like a normal stout, but with lactose/milk. I also note the presence of the caramel. This has been artificially blackened up with colourant. Also, not sure if this is from the can or from roasted barley, but very irony. Definitely black malt in there. Kola nut. Sorta bittersweet. Dry finish. Palate is a bit watery. Kinda oily. Restorative, like all stouts.
