Easy drinking. Very clean and smooth. Not over powering in anyway. Well balanced. Dark chocolate and licorice. Nice off white head. Very seasonable stout.

Draught (at the brewery bar). Great stout, smooth and dry with a good level of hopping. Would have been happy drinking this all night.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours very deep brown, small stable tan head. Smells of caramel and coffee with some burnt malt notes. A bit too carbonated (which is very unusual for this brewer - they do have some bottle variation). Taste is initially sweet, then there is mild but lingering bitterness. There’s dried fruit, chocolate and salty flavours with roastiness sitting in the background.

Bottle 330ml. Great stout, aromatic and bitter. Aromas of liquorice, coffee, and burnt caramel. Taste has a sweet start, with long-lasting bitterness at the end. Creamy palate, medium-to-full body. Black colour, and a frothy off-white head.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught Pump. Poured lovely deep colour with a creamy tan head. Quite a soft coffee and licourice aroma which follows through on the palate. Medium bodied in style, quite creamy, but enjoyable to be sure.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Jet black, with nice brown head. Nice roasty malt flavour, with a good crystal malt to lift the overall maltiness of the stout... Good bitterness & roastiness. Great for a cold day... or night!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Thick and syrupy with a a volcanic head of thick tan foam, 10% beer 90% foam when poured. Flavour of burnt malt with a strong aroma of coffe and chocolate. Super lively in the mouth with extreme carbonation and a burnt toffee flavour that lasts.
