3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This stout poured a deep black colour with a big, beautiful, tan coloured, creamy stout. To the nose there are scents of toffee, vanilla, anise seed and cocoa to name a few. Carbonation is there but not overkill. Fizzy on the tongue. First swig was full of flavour. Flavours of spice, licorice, smoke, vanilla and roastiness. Finish is nice and burnt with spice flavour lingering.
