3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bitter 500ml chilled and poured at home. Small brown head that disappeared instantly leaving not a great looking drink; lovely sweet, malty chocolate nose; some roasty tones with hints of vanilla; heavy bitter taste which gave way to a chocolate palate and dry bitter finish. A tad too much bitterness - could do with more balance.

Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were burnt malts, sweetness, chocolate, earth and bitterness. Afteraste had chocolate, burnt malts and bitterness. Not bad brew but a bit too harsh. Nice chocolate finish.

Origin: Bottle. Vessel: Snifter. Supplier: Corks Of Cotham (Bristol). Nose is sweet with hints of berry. Pours a murky black with little head. Taste quickly focuses into burnt wood. Comparatively thin body. A good winter beer for a cold night.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black beer with a decent beige head. Aroma and taste are both mild chocolate and malt, and the flavour adds a whack of hop to. Quite light for a chocolate stout but very drinkable all the same.
