4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Batch #1353, bottle. Nice hizz at he opening, foam is high in the bottle neck, but not "over the top". OK, this turned out to BE a bit over the top carbonated, but as expected the foam died down pretty fast in the glass. (Patience You must have, young padowan). It’s black, and it’s foamy, tan to light brown mocca coloured head. Aroma is dark, bitter chocolate, cocoa and coffee up front.. Same flavours in the taste, along with the quite heavy carbonation. I would say it’ has sweet dry bubbling mouthfeel. Not one of their best Outmeal Stout batches, so this rating may be a little unfair.
