Fruity and bitter at the same time - Nice appearance - A bit watery - Not a very lasting taste - But overall a fine beer

Spina @ gallo brillo. Nera con riflessi rubino, schiuma media e persistente. Buona tostatura giÃ al naso, corpo leggero, leggera astringenza, molto porter piÃ¹ che stout, comunque onesta. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

expecting a rich full taste, this stout is dissapointingly thin. taste is suprisingly perky, but also beneath the surface lies hidden a hint of the full round taste I wanted.

Poured an opaque black colour with a one- to two-finger light tan foamy head that diminished quickly and left a bit of clingy lace. Aroma subtly of malt. Taste slightly sweet with no roasted tones. Body light for a stout. Smooth finish. Ordinary.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yum! This is a lot better than the group ratings would suggest, I think. The two biggest drawbacks, off the front, are the aroma (bready, doughy, with no suggestion of chocolate or coffee frequent to this type of beer), and a palate that is very thin for a stout, watery across the tongue.
That being said? This is an intensely drinkable beer, very easy to session a few at a time without regret. The taste is surprisingly warm, pleasant coffee and sweet ale, with only a very late and gentle suggestion of roast on the back of the tongue. The pour is BEAUTIFUL; a big black pour with a dense, dark brown head that fades to a pleasant, creamy-brown foam.
Overall? 15/20. It’s not going to win many awards in the stout category, but with a modest 4.5% alcohol and very easy-drinking taste, this is the sort of beer you’ll be guiltless to drink two or three of over a meal.
File this one firmly under "damned good utility beer".

Coffee, chocholate and some roasted malts. Dark brown to black colour with a small tan head. medium sweet and light bitterness. Light body with a bit thin texture. Lively carbonation, a bit to lively for my taste. Overall OK, but a bit to watery and to little taste here.

Bottle 0,50L. Dark brown, almost black colour with tiny, light brown head. Aroma of sweet cacao, cappuccino, chocolate and caramel. Moderate bitter taste and aftertaste, but too much carbonation and too watery for the stout. Not bad, but expectations were bigger...

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home. Profumo debole e poco complesso. Si avverte tostatura, lieve profumo erbaceo, note metalliche, salamoia delle olive. Colore marrone scuro opalescente, schiuma beige compatta abbastanza fine e quasi cremosa. Gusto secco, di frutta secca (noci), tostatura, accenti di fondi di caffè. Gusto poco intenso e ancora meno persistente. Consistenza oleosa, di corpo debole, non è particolarmente caratterizzata.

Bottle from Morrisons. Looks good. Yep, lovely looking. Easy on the eye. Aesthetically pleasing, no doubt about it. Has it gone yet?... Nope. Still here. Looks good though...
