3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black with a thin tan head. Coffee aroma and lot of coffee and chocolate flavour. After a couple of disappointing Pen-lon brews, this was much better. Would be great but let down slightly by being over carbonated and a touch watery.

No head. Coca-cola color. Soth and black roasted malt aroma. Huge roasted malt taste and taste of meat broth! Medium bitterness that is a bit astringent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by gethinbeer. Deep black beer with a thin white head. Aroma is loaded with rich cocoaish/chocolate. A light wheaty spiciness lies behind this. Soft earthy accent on the back. There is a touch of nuttiness in the malts as well. Fairly low roastiness, but there is a lot of chocolate and some berryish fruitiness. Quite a lovely simple stout.
