3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml can from Sainsburys. Ah, the favoured drink of little old ladies (apart from sherry obviously). Pours completely black with a big tan head. Unsuprisingly, the mouthfeel is very much like milk, coating the mouth and giving it a lingering taste. Taste is creamy & chocolatey with a nice roast element. Goes very well with a good slice of fruit cake.

Can.Black with a thin unappealing beige head. Sickly sweet aroma. Initially sweet flavour, then it attemps some more complex flavours but in general fails.

330ml can. Pours jet black with a medium tight head. Aroma is roasted malt and sugars. Taste is very sweet, roasted malt. Quite full for the 3%. Reminds me of a Brewdog Paradox.

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

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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Almost 100 years since it’s conception, this one didn’t age well. Tasted from the squat can, it poured a deep dark reddish brown, with a thin dense tan head. Aroma (if any?) of ovaltine, dank liquor and copper pipes. In the mouth it was smoothed out with a cloying maltiness. It reminded me of a cold mocha-latte, with a shot of whisky in it. Low carbonation, no roasted or lactose highlights, and a short, mildly sweet swallow. I think this one is best suited to the history books, rather than the pint glass.

STILL SOME AROUND. I LIKE COFFEE SO I LIKE THIS BEER. EASY TO DRINK AND CREAMY. IT IS COMPLEX BUT THAT COMPLEXITY REMINDS ME OF SUB PRIME COLUMBIAN COFFEE. OR A FRENCH ROAST. I ALWAYS DRINK COFEE WITH EVAPORATED MILK SO THATS KINDA WHAT YOU HAVE HERE. OH WELL EEEHHH!

Bottled. Black, light brown head. Slight coffee aroma. Light coffee and chocolate flavours - rather bland however. For 3.0% a good stout.
