3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml Bottle conditioned: BBD 23 Oct 2013. Poured carefully into an ’Abbot Ale’ glass tankard at home on 27 Jun 2013.
This is one dark beer: on top of the deep, deep brown/black brew sat a creamy covering of tanned foam. The head gave some heavy lacing before turning into a wisp and collar mid-tasting. I don’t think any sediment left the bottle, but the beer is so dark it was difficult to tell, not a lot of liquid or grist in the bottle after pouring though.
The nose was roasted, almost burnt malty, dark chocolate and peat bogs.
The taste is dry, malty and clean: a bitterness arrives mid-sip and carries on into the aftertaste. The peat bog aromas do not get into the taste, the dark (bitter) chocolate does, that’s a relief!
Good body depth and a very pleasant Stout in deed.
