It's a nice crisp stout, got a lot of chocolates and toffee flavours. Really well balanced, it's got a lightness that I wasn't expecting, rather refreshing in comparison to the heavier usual style. Really nice stuff!

On nitro. Deep black color, beautiful rich tan head. Good thick lacing. Extremely smooth creamy texture, with flavors of roasted malts balanced by some hop bitterness at the end. Texture is the thing. Not an amazing palate.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance is pretty much pitch black, values hint of brown around the edges. A half-finger brown/tan head which doesn’t last long. Aroma- milk chocolate, dark malts, slight roast, coffee, vanilla, brown sugar. Taste- dry roasty notes hit first, bitter chocolate, cold coffee, roast dark malts, quite full and a bit creamy in the mouth, roasty, bitter finish slightly reminiscent of burnt toast, with a hint of vanilla. Nice stout.
