COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Originally launched at 4% abv, then reduced to 3.8%

A classic stout combining the flavours and characteristics of three coloured malts and additional roasted barley. Generously bittered with choicest East Kent hops.

mile (3338) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2011
Bottle. Very dark brown, small to average and fully diminishing brown head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, some roasted malt, faint coffee and toffee. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, roasted malt and licorice, some coffee. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some roasted malt with coffee and licorice, faint hoppyness. Lightly sweetish stout with roastiness and coffee – OK but nothing special.

500ml bottle (K Supermarket, Kamppi)
6 Nice dry roasty toasty aroma, but a little muted.
3 Lovely deep reddy brown, tan head. And then the idiots put it in a clear glass bottle, so punishing them a point for that mistake.
7 Rather a simple dry stout, but definitely does the ’dry’ bit well. Certainly well attenuated, and with hints of dark chocolate occasionally.
4 Smooth, but refreshing palate, pleasant carbonation. Finish lovely and burnt roastiness, and with a gently tingle of noble hops.
13 For a bottled beer, this is very tasty. Shame about the horrific clear glass bottle, there’s a good beer inside.
