500ml bottle from Alko. Pours pitch black with a small head. Aroma of roasty malts, cocoa nibs, vanilla, coffee and chocolate. Taste is smooth, roasty and sweetish with hints of cocoa and coffee. Finish is sweetish, slightly roasty and earthy with hints of cocoa and coffee. Pretty balanced.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Basic roasted stout, but easy. Good to start with. With a strong(ish) body. Not too dry. Mature taste with a hint of licorice, which is great.

Bottle from Dan Murphy’s 081215. This beer is everything that a well brewed English stout should be- heavy and hearty with an impenetrable blackness with waves off vanilla, chocolate and burnt toffee coming off it.

Lovely aroma of milk chocolate and coffee, which gave a great impression. However, the taste is disappointly different. There is a strange citrusy feel to this stout (maybe not that strange as the brewer states that pale ale is added), but this combination does not work well for me. I couldn’t taste any significant notes of chocolate, coffee or much malt as the citrus feel is too overpowering. This is a shame, as the aroma was very promising.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It is a good stout. The carbonation is regular and the foam is strong and more white than the St-Peters cream stout. The taste is toasted coffee and bitter and the malt is present.
