4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines. Thinnish Stout with a nice beige/braan top. Very pleasant taste: pretty dry, but the sweetness reveals itself in the finish. Has Milk Stout qualities. Alc is noticeable, but balance is good. Really smooth.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is sweet dark malts and coffee. The initial taste is more of the same, a nice thick body with a slight sourness compliments the rich dark chocolate and coffee notes well. This is not the most complex stout I have ever tasted, but its a damn good beer, definitely worth getting, another local Yorkshire brewing hero in the making.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ tasting, courtesy of deanso. Pours a pitch black beer with a thin beige head on top. Aroma of chocolate, malts and dark fruits. Flavor has some sour, tarty touches. What’s up with that? Chocolate and other sweet touches have faded in the background. Light silky mouthfeel. Decent at best, but certainly not impressive as an imperial stout!
