UPDATED: JAN 22, 2014 Tap (Drink Baar, Tallinn) (7:5:7:4:14=3.7)
Lovely coffee roasty aroma, pleasantly sweet. Smooth palate, soft carbonation. Lovely roasty body, gentle roast. Touch wooly with dry earthy hops. Nice stout at 6%, English styled, drier than the other stouts we’ve had recently, which is nice.
Rerate: Tap (Pudel, Tallinn) (7:5:6:4:13=3.5)
Just had this to compare with Buxton Imperial Black, and whilst this smelt better, it doesn’t taste as good. Fails to impress to much, gotta dock a point off taste and overall.

A decent enough beer though magic rock have better beers in there portfolio. I just find the beer slightly lacks in depth, and the finish is on the short side.

Tap@wka. Black. Quite a delicious nose - roasted barley, roasted coffee, some milkchocolate and a bit of green grapes. Light bodied for the flavours, feels a bit sharp. Bitter, but not harsh. A bit of hops, salty licorice, but a lot of roasted barley Ok, but a bit thin.
