3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Somewhat thin palate but mighty tasty plus I love the name and the label. Bonus is that learned a new word today, so drinking can be educational. Will definitely try to get my hands on more of these next time I am in Manchester.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A classic dry stout with lots of roasted and burnt flavors. Hints of unsweetened chocolate and coffee. Medium bodied. Creamy dark grey head, which floats as one large mass - almost like a floating scoop of ice cream. Hides the ABV pretty well.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Brewtopia. Pours black with a half inch of khaki foam. Big roasted chocolate malt on the nose. The roast on the tongue was overdone. It tasted slightly burnt to me though it finishes clean. Not my favorite example of the style.
