4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500ml bottle. Rather fittingly, the colour is that of dark molasses, and it pours with a pale caramel head. The aroma is burnt cinder toffee. Soft and rounded texture, with flavours of burnt malt and smokey honey. This stout is pleasingly flavoursome, and pairs well with cake.

Had on tap at The Hop in York. Not much of a smell, super dark colour, watery to taste, sort of a bad aftertaste. Overall a subpar stout, wouldn't have again.

500ml bottle from t’Asda - Jet black body, beige to tan head which soon goes. Nose is molasses, coffee, espresso, burnt malts. Taste is bitter at first, strong black coffee, harsh liquorice. A full mouthful, would only wish for a bit more oiliness in the palate.
