3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black with a creamy head. The aroma is sweetish with notes of coffee. The flavour is nice, but could have more personality and body. I think it’s a bit on the thin side. The finish brings me notes of licorice and a nice and lasting bitterness. I might sound like I don’t like it, but I do. It’s nice, but average and without any unexpected surprises.

Straightforward, balanced, and unobtrusive. Medium to light-bodied. Disappointing in many departments and drinkable.

A Mes rate:
Bottle from Morrisons. Dark mahogany colour with a virtually unshiftable tan head. Spritzy soapy aroma with some cooking oil and parma violets. Bland flavour with some slight yeast and coffee. Very faint hint of vanilla in the finish. Looks great. Pretty poor elsewhere.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Clear dark brown / black color with a average frothy good lacing fully lasting light brown head. Aroma is light to moderate malty, coffee / mocca, roasted, light chocolate. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft to flat. Pleasure to drink but it looks as if it will be with more flavor..
