Bottled - Chris O shindig 2007 - A black beer with a smoky roasty fishy aroma with notes of licquorice. The taste is good with roasty and smoky notes. I remember criticising their first two beers. This is a huge improvement.

A Mes rate:
50cl bottle at Chris O’s Shindig. Looks as a decent stout should, black and tan. Head died rather quickly however. Sweet malty aroma with dark chocolate, wood smoke and hints of the alcohol. Flavour is similar but not quite so pleasing. Slight buttery note that it just about gets away with. Almost great but not quite.
