2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml botlle bought in January 2013 at The House of Trembling Madness Shop in York. Oily pour. Shiny naked surface. Deep, all-black body. No lacing. Dark malty nose. Malty base added by salt and sweet liquorice. A bland twist of malt bitterness to the ending. Rather flat in the mouth. Medium bodied. Alright, had expected more though (shared with Finn, Tromsø 05.03.2014).

Smaczny, acz niecodzienny stout. W aromacie sporo kawy, lekka nuta kwaskowa, poza tym niezidentyfikowane nuty sosu sojowego wzmagający pełnię. W smaku dość pełne, jak na stouta mocno wysycone, przeważa kawa, lekkie nuty czekoladowe, intensywny kawowo słonawy finisz.

Bottle from ’Jacks’ Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon, consumed at home Monday 30th December 2013 Pours black with a few bubbles skitting across the top. Smooth and very easy drinking, a little roasty with some coffee. I don’t get any ’hint of the sea’ it’s just a nice stout. Tasty. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

Almost inky black in texture with a high carbonation. Kinda tastes like an oyster stout but is too fizzy. May have gotten a bad bottle
