Bottle. Black beer with a strong brown head. The aroma is gently roasted, and the flavour is mildly roasted and malty with gentle bitterness. Overall a nice stout.

This stout is ok, but for my taste weak. It is refreshing, nice roasted malt, bitter coffee finish. A drinkable stout, but this kind of stout is not for me I guess.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle Booths Penrith. Low aroma of slightly acrid roast malt. Interesting enough flavours, with milk chocolate giving way to blackberry and coffee, with a trademark Robinsons tart finish. Slightly synthetic, but pleasant looking with a lively pour and a coffee coloured that stays throughout.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Black with a beige head. Nice fruity and malty aroma. Taste is a bit disappointing, as in not much of it. Wateryish mouthfeel. Drinkable though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice aroma and taste of bitter, burnt malts. Has a light carbonation and a disappoingly thin, watery texture which fails to carry the flavour to its full potential.

Very black and with a heavy treacle aroma - not as sweet or tasty as this but has a great texture.
