A black stout which is brimming over with roast malt flavours, balanced with a complex hop blend. Really smooth with roasted aftertaste.

500 ml bottle pours with a small bubbled tan head. Aroma is sweet choolate and rich day old coffee. First taste is nicely bitter but a bit thin bodied. Flavors are good though but just too damn thin. Some tobacco in there as well.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2007 The aroma is coffee, cocoa powder and chocolate with a light roastiness. Smells nice. It pours dark brown to blacka nd holds a fairly lasting craggy mocha head. Very thin bodied fore, but nice toasted flavors of malt, coffee and chocolate. Hints at molasses and black licorice without ever really going there all the way. The finish is watery and the flavor really drops out. This could be good, but as it stands it nearly has the body of a porter and doesn’t really satisfy my stout tooth.

This is an opaque black with a thick tan head. The aroma is of roasted barley and black malt with a little noticeable hops. The creamy mouthfeel leads to a dry roasty finish. Nice.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2005
Bottled. A big black beer with a nice tan coloured head. The aroma is full and roasty with lots of coffee notes. The taste is also nicely roasty with a little fruitiness at the end for good measure. A really good beer with typical stouty qualities.
