Deep black pour with a thick creamy white head. The nose is really lovely. Nice oaty aroma with a deep rich chocolatey base. Has a really complex and lovely base. Toasted grain, milk chocolate, softly herbal. Unctuous and rich. Really delicious.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
As a stout lover I had high expectations, but am pretty disappointed. Pours beautiful and dark with a nice tan head, but it's downhill from there. Palate is thin and the taste is watered down. Aroma is mild cheap and weak coffee, slightly burnt, and there is not much else going on.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Smells of oats, milk chocolate, coffee, black licorice, light roasted malts and some hops. Dense black color with a sticky tan head. Tastes sweet and roasty at the same time but has an odd sour and salty aftertaste. Strangely, it’s a drink that makes you thirsty. It’s a little thin and weak for my taste. Palate is not very good. I should have stuck to my guns on this one - I never trust a stout under 8% ABV.

I’m not much of a stout drinker, but I like this, smoky, toast, roasted malts. Fairly heavy.
