3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Easy drinking stout with chocolate malt sweetness and coffee notes, though a bit thin for its 4.5% strength.Lacks the roasted barley bitterness expected from a stout and its really more like a strong mild or porter. This used to be bottle conditioned a few years ago and I seem to remember it being tastier then. Still, I could happily drink this all evening, and its considerably better than Guiness!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Dark brown, almost black body with a nice, dense beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, mocha and coffee. Flavor is slightly roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, fruity and a decent bitterness. Medium body, actually surprisingly light considering lots of flavors. Nice balance between sweet and bitter.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, Morrisons, Carlisle. Genuinely thought Iíd already rated this as Iíve drunk my fair share of it over the last few years. This is just a lovely smooth beer. Nice sweet caramel, the roast flavour is subtle and not overpowering. The aftertaste is deliciously sweet, yet just smoky and fruity enough to give plenty of flavour on the back of the throat. Fine rich tan coloured head makes it a pleasure to look at. At 4 for £5.50 itís a beer I can afford to drink all night and one I would certainly want to.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark brown with a reddish hint and a good beige head that disappears quiet quickly. Little aroma; slightly fruity. Medium body and carbonation. Flavour was dark roast malt, caramel sweetness with afruity tang and little bitterness. Stout is not one of my favourite beer styles, but I really enjoyed this.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
An average stout. The head as mentioned above does go away quickly, leaving a nice, dark colour with an interesting aroma. The taste was adequate for a stout, but not terrific.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 50cl: dark brown with a light brown head that dissapears quickly which is also creamy. Light aroma but could be to dark chocolate and dry. The taste is about roasted malt, coffee and wood. The first beer Iíve ever taste of this style and I have a good impression.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark brown with a beige head that dissipates fast. Aroma is weak, but I picked up chocolate and caramel, some roasted bread like notes, some earthy bitter notes. The flavour is weak as well, leaving this watery and a bit of a disappointment.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown with a quickly disappearing head. Aroma: Malt, rye bread, dark chocolate. Taste: Low sweetness, bitter, roasted malt, wood, dark chocolate. Seems a little out of balance. Imo it lacks a hint of sweetness to balance the bitterness. Still an ok beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Big fluffy head over a totaly dark beer. Clean caramell aroma. Roasted taste with litle bitterness. The stoute laks both coffey and chocolte to be a good stout. Maybee good as a beginners stout.
