I didn’t expect much when I picked up a 4-pack of these fairly cheap. I poured one in a glass and took a good sip. It was surprisingly very good! It’s like Guinness with more flavor. It’s nice and dark yet very smooth. It’s sweet and tastes of coffee with a slight bitterness. My wife’s not a big-time beer drinker but definitely liked this one. It’s a stout that I’ll certainly buy again.

Can @ home. Nice black colour, creamy head. Sweet nose, roasted malts. Taste is initially of roasted malts, coffee and some bitterness, but gets really sweet in the end. The sweetness stays. Soft and full mouthfeel, but this is too sweet for my liking.

Bottle. Poured black with a thick tan head. Slight aroma of malt. Sweetish malt taste, thin body, thinnish finish. A rather ordinary stout.

Pours a thick tar-coffee like beer with tan ale. Aroma is roasted malts with chocolate. Flavor is malts and chocolate. Body is super light for this style but it’s still decent. Carbonation is medium.

Tin from Tesco. Never had this before as it was always overpriced but they’ve dropped the price so here goes. Wow this is great. Fantastic roasted toffee malt aroma with a roasted sweet body and a fairly bitter sweet finish. Lovely

can at the Avon Combined Services Club, Clifton Bristol. Black with a slight, but tight tan head. Very easy drinking with sweet aromas of chocolate, milk and dark fruit. The flavour was much of the same with plenty of sweetness and some coffee roastiness. Not bad for such a weak ABV.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Near black colored with brown hints. Medium sized beige head. Sweet and caramelly roasted aroma with some burned brown sugar. Thin to medium bodied, still not watery palate even only 3% ABV. Flavor is also sweet with caramel in start, roastiness also here. Aftertaste turns to somehow lactic and sour with still roastiness.
