Aye, ratebeer is sayint this is stout. When I poured this to glass I had look of color and though this could be one due the blackness which is quite not pitch black but close. Definition ’a bit more dark than typical cola drink’ is close. There is no clear smell. Taste is malty, and somewhat smoky. Afterwards waterness takes over. Drinkable, nothing special. I have hunch maker did not want to offend anyone, so none got to be pleased either.

DIBBLE (102) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2015
Yeasty malty aroma. Tan head dissipated to none over clear cola coloured beer. Fairly thick mouthfeel with a subtle fizz on the tongue. Presence of yeast is noticeable alongside the subtly sweet yet bold dark malt flavour. Herbal bitter edge leads to a dry sweet malt finish.
