Cask @The Vintage, Leith. While i have had this a few times i’d never rated
it. Pours black with a tan head. Huge chocolate malty nose, nutty, chestnuts perhaps. Coffee and chocolate on the palate a wonderful sweet aftertaste, this is what beer should be.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Stout molto complessa, gusto intrigante dominato da cioccolata e mati tostati, ma che lascia intraverdere sfumature di liquirizia e frutta scura. Buon bilanciamento tra dolce e tostato. Il lato oscuro della magia brassicola riesce a evocare un prodotto davvero notevole.

Cask at CBC Clerkenwell. An absolute top drop this. Perfect balance between chocolate, roast and sweetness. Has a little liquorice in there which adds that touch more. Very balanced and full bodied. Great beer

Half pint at Leeds Brewery Tap. As dark as night, absolutely no light to be seen through this beer. Dispersing tan head. Nose predominantly black currant with licorice. This is lost in the initial taste but returns on the smokey finish. Taste includes coffee, smoke and oak. Another fantastic Brew from Magic Rock!!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From tap. A tall creamy sand-colored head, upon a near black body. Dry roasty and light ashy aroma. Fine notes of coffee ground and dark chocolate. Mid-bodied, dry and chalky. The flavor is much of same as the aroma, with a nice acidic touch in addittion Earthy and light resiny bitterness in a dry finish. Very likeable.
