Nice dark color with good head. Good aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and caramel. A bit too "watery" for me for a stout with little carbonation. Flavor is like aroma and the aftertaste lsats quite a while which is nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2011 Cask-conditioned at the Portcullis, Clifton, Bristol 28/02/10. Near black with a slight, off-white head. Aroma of dark chocolate, leafy hops and roasted malts. Easy drinking, with plenty more chocolate, black coffee and a hoppy, dry finish. Excellent [3.7]. Rerate 15/03/11 at the Three Tuns, Bristol. Thinner on this occasion with the hops perhaps too prominent. [3.3]
