COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pasteurised bottle.
NOTE: The cask version has a separate listing. In November 2012 a new 5.2% bottled version was introduced. This will be a different entry on RateBeer - please do NOT place any ratings for that version under this entry.
A classic stout combining the flavours and characteristics of three coloured malts and additional roasted barley. Generously bittered with choicest East Kent hops.

This beats Guinness hands down, sorry Irish folk, nice roasted taste and not too creamy or thin either, Shepherd Neame should produce this all the time. NB mine was a bottled version at 4%abv

Bottled (from K Citymarket Kivihaka, Vaasa). Very deep ambery brown colour with a mediumsized beige head, that leaves nice lace. Aroma is beautiful toffee, roasted notes, mild dark fruityness as well as some coffee. Flavour is roasted malts, some sweet dark fruityness, chocolate, coffee and also some quite bittery notes. Quite strong coffeeish and chocolaty notes in the finish.

mikkopen (813) - Oulu, FINLAND - APR 22, 2011
500 ml bottle. Deep dark reddish brown colour, medium-sized beige head. Sweetish aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and dark fruit. The flavour is roasted malty, slightly sour, with coffee and chocolate, and a lingering bitter finish. For a beer with just 4 % alcohol by volume, this is very tasty.
