Towey1989 (235) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2015
Keg at Sinclair’s Oyster Bar, Manchester. A deep brown to black colour with a creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, some coffee and smoke. Taste of roasted malt, milk chocolate, coffee, some dried fruit and dry nuttiness. Light bodied and smooth texture. A dry, roasted finish. Very similar to Guinness but has its brewed in England, and Manchester in particular, you get the proper homegrown taste like Guinness tastes in Ireland.
