Bottle - pours black with a deep ran head. Hints of smoky chocolate and caramel malt in the nose. Not a lot on the taste, dryness across the palate, again something in there registering as smokey. Nice full mouthfeel.

Smooth – yes, rich – no way. Light roasted malt background, some choco. Feels bit too thin. Quite sweet with very light bitterness. Decent drinkable dark brew, but nothing to remember

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
If I’d bought this as a dark ale I might have enjoyed it a little more - as a ’Stout’ beer it was a let down. Watery, insubstantial, low on flavour. Pretty much the worst stout about?

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bien noire, collet moyen de fines bulles, persistant.
Aromes un peu faible, chocolat léger.
Onctueuse et mince a la fois, un peu fruité derrière le chocolat. Pointe d’iode sur le final.
