A good standar stout. Pours black with tan lingering head with strong lingering smell of roasted malt, taste is lightly sweet with smoky strong bitter taste, not too different to Guinness Oriiginal. A nice beer!

500ml . In a pint . I dont like Low BOOST STOUT as a custom , no booze or complexity for me .... I bought this at a garden center as I needed change . beige head above purple/black intertwine liquid . nose of chocolate , rich and somewhat cumbersome ...fatty , like cake icing sugars . On the palate , chocolate , coffee , maybe dark fruit tangy nuances ... but mellow .. this could do with a dry finish, but its ok to drink if you dont wanna think about your drink .

butelka, Pod Mosteczkiem. na szybko: smakuje jak dry stout, wytrawny, z naciskiem na pijalnosc. z jednej strony wszystko na swoim miejscu (kawa, ciemna czekolada, palonosc), z drugiej zas wszystko to bardzo delikatne. rowniez niewiele ciala, sredni- wysycenie, prawie wcale goryczki. efekt: piwo ktore sie wypija w 5 minut, a po kolejnych 5ciu o nim nie pamieta...

500ml in Wales, as ’Robinsons Unicorn Black’, 4.1%, BB Sep 2016. Cola black, dense foamy dirty brown head, full lacing. Aroma is chocolatey, roasted malt, treacle, thin coffee. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is liquoice, thin roast coffee, some ash in the finish. Nice ashiness, but a bit sweet and thin too. Overall, not bad. Aroma is quite nice, as is the musty ashy aftertaste. Just a touch thin.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A dark black-brown coloured beer with a thick and frothy tan coloured head. A light roasted malt aroma, nutty, dark caramel, toffee, plus hints of ripe red fruit and liquorice. Dry and light mouthfeel. The taste is bittersweet, all the roasted malt elements again, nutty, burnt caramel, coffee bean, fruit and the liquorice in the background. The finish is long and bittersweet. Bottle from Lidl, Fakenham.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Stinckley Lidl. Good as black with a fine draping cappuccino foam. Attractive moderately roasted aroma suggestive of good chocolate, roasted nuts, rust and dried black grapes. Straightforward burnt wood, nuts and paper flavour a little disappointing after the aroma with dark chocolate and black cherry hints. Mint humbugs. Chocolate mousse. Etc.
Earlier Rating: 2/22/2013 Total Score: 2.2
Bottle from Booth’s. Glossy pitch with a massive, honeycombed beige head. Not entirely pleasant aroma of various eastern sauces; soy, oyster and nam pla all in there. Stroke of unwashed dog; some battered sausage. Smells sweet; briny, slightly rotten. Sorghum? Taste predominantly burnt cardboard. A scattering of iron filings; bourbon, cocoa emerging. Yep, burnt cardboard dunked in bourbon. No stout. Will hold my nose and just about get through this. Yuck.

Bottle from Lidl and drunk at home. Black beer lasting tan head. Chocolate and dark malts aroma. Bit of newspaper maybe. It’s a little watery. Some decent chocolate cake. It’s kinda ok, but a little bit thin for me.

Dark ale with a coffee oily aroma, a flavour of coffee and roasted malt and a fetish bitter finish. This is quite a pleasant stout, perhaps a little astringent but not bad
