Thanks to my dad for this bottle. Appearance: Cola black with a thin off white head. Aroma: malt, some very light chocolate and coffee, a little wet cardboard too. Flavour: Sweet at first, vanilla, a tiny amount of chocolate, a little roasty in the finish. Not bad.

500ml bottle. Pours pitch black with a thin head, that didn’t last. Aroma is faint, but is roasted malt and some licorice. Roasted malt to start. Lots of roasted coffee and some licorice on the dry finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours almost completely black with a rather large but quickly disappearing head. Malt, toffee and horse aroma. Flavour is coffee, malt and hops with a somewhat watery mouthfeel but a slightly burning aftertaste. Good.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Dark brown, okay pillow of head but not dense enough. Aroma of wet burnt barley and water. Taste is an odd mix of malt and roasted barley, like a half-guinnes half-spiced sout concoction. Doesn’t taste right. Doesn’t work for me.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
50cl bottle from M&S Liverpool. Black with dark beige edges, but virtually no head at all. Liquorice style aroma with some roasted malt aroma. I really don’t like liquorice and this is very liquorice-y. So not my favourite stout, and the carbonation makes the mouth feel really thin. Not one of my favourite stouts.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear dark brown color with a large, frothy to creamy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to beige head. Aroma is moderate malty, coffee, creame vanilla, light to moderate roasted and burnt. Flavor is moderate to light light heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, artificial - cheap commodity. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
15th July 2008. Label says brewed with Carageenan. The interweb reveals this to be a seaweed extract commonly used as thickeners in the food industry!! Mmmm! Smooth and creamy but full of lively dark malt bite and quite a bitterish hop finish. Plenty going on!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle. Deep chestnut brown in colour with a dense off-white head, fading fast to leave a ring around the sides of the glass; richly roasted malts giving chocolate and smoke aromas; light to medium body with a dry feel, and some chocolate and coffee notes; the finish is dry and silky. An excellent stout.
