3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml can from Cotteridge Wines (I think). One of my favourite breweries. Here goes... jet black - no reddish tint here. Smells sweet but not sickly - kind of an oaty, sweet cereal, like flapjack or Golden Grahams (love them) but with some marzipan and Baileys as well - really great aroma. Smooth feel with slight fizz at the end. The taste could be fuller and longer lasting, which is a slight disappointment on an otherwise great experience, but there’s dark chocolate and mild coffee malt here. Still one of my favourite breweries, even if this just falls short of greatness.

Can. Dark reddish black pour, with a light tannish head and some weird sludge at the bottom. Chocolate, notes of dark fruit, roast, and anise. The chipotle and cinnamon are very light, barely noticeable. Ok

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From the can: "This belgian stout is brewed with chocolate, cinnamon, and chipotle. It pours deep black with ruby highlights. Layered with roasted malt character and hints of bittersweet dark chocolate clove, cinnamon and subtle peppery notes in the nose."
Pours dark brown with light mocha sheet. Smells of chocolate, clove, burnt popcorn, little bit of cinnamon and vanilla. Taste is cocoa, toasted malts, some vanilla, some corn, a little astringent. Full bodied with light carb and an off-dry finish. Not impressed whatsoever, lately their beers are more and more easily passed by. The only thing keeping me coming back is I’ve had all their offerings except the wit, which I think I will remedy. Not sure I’ve had all the beer from any other brewery not local to me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Some great ideas! Black with almost no head, good body but slightly under carbonated. Roasted malt aroma with large notes of bitter chocolate, coco powder and small hints of nondescript spice. Roasted malt backbone, but lacking charred and bitter roasted notes. Some of the best chocolate flavours I’ve experienced, great depth to the bitter dark chocolate, however much like the aroma the spices are very much recessed, almost to the point of being absent.

Opaque black brown beer, good tan head. Airy palate, semi dry with fine carbonation. Soft dark malt, mildly tangy with mellow roast and smoke. Dry finish with an earthy malt aftertaste. A bit dull and a disappointment!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from ales by mail
Ruby tinged super dark brown with lacing of tan head. Chocolate, cranberry and cardamom on the nose. Medium bodied, spiky carbonation, initially chili spices, then head berries and lip tingling heat in the finish. Reminds of Mexican hot chocolate. Spice builds. Really enjoyable but a bit thin perhaps.
