3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml Bottle from Beers of Europe: poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard at home on 30th June 2014. Like most Stoutís and as itís name suggests, this is black in colour, the head a full foam like blanket of tanned bubbles. Roasted and toasted malts rule the nose and taste, mid-sweetness from the chocolate malts but this is no sweet milk version, this is fairly bitter, if a bit thin body wise. Iíve chastised Robinsons beers in the past; this one is a lot better than some Iíve had from these guys.

Bottle. Dark brown. Quite sweet at first but this soon fades. Quite interesting at first but then the flavours disappear. Should have been better than it turned out.
