Opaque dark brown beer with a tidy pale tan head. Palate is smooth with light minerally carbonation. Smooth dark malts, no roast or bitterness but there is nice dark chocolate and decent dark malt cream. Whisper of smooth coffee. Light smooth finish. Decent stout this, smooth and very drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a small beige head, which fades rapidly, leaving no lacing. Herbal notes, port and Turkish coffee make up the aroma. Herbal hops up front give way to sweet Turkish coffee and milk chocolate in the mid-palate. Muscat and mild dark chocolate appear in the finish. This is, on the whole, a pretty decent stout.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
16.9oz bottle. Dark brown, slightly red color. Mostly clear. Thin light brown head, quickly fizzes away to minimal. Leaves very few dots of lace. Medium to bigger body. Crisp, light carbonation. Body is a little thin and watery, does not feel full or chewy. A lot of sweet taste, lightly cloying.Light bitterness. Some coffee, dark fruit, milk chocolate in the aroma. Light spice. OK, but I’m not totally into this one.

Bottle. Black. Black soft roastyness. A bit of milkyness there as well. Body full, but surprisingly drinkable for the abv. Has good flavours- chocolately roasty tones, a bit of milky sweetness. Good drinkable strong stout. A bit of sweetness, a bit weak in intesity.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep brown with red hints...short, dark tan head.
Aroma is light....sweet smoke, raisin, light chocolate.
Taste is soft, cream, chocolate, roast.
Very gentle...sweet, but not overly so.
A touch of licorice, malty.
Not terribly "stout"....but quite a nice drinking beer.
