Bottiglia 500 ml. Marrone scuro con bellissimo cappello di schiuma beige persistente. Aroma di caffè, malto tostato, cioccolato. In bocca malto tostato, caffè, sentori di liquirizia, finale asciutto e amaro. Allaccio al bicchiere, corpo medio, bassa carbonazione. Squisita!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black colour with small brown head. Beautiful smell of coffee and chocolate.
Surprisingly high carbonation for a stout. Mouthfeel is a bit light at first but it turns into creamy soon enough. Taste is mostly burnt, roasted coffee with a very bitter and dry finish.
Overall, quality stout and well worth a try but I’m a bit disappointed with it lacking some flavour other then burnt. Not for everyone.

Keskiverto Stout. Tavallinen Shepherd neamen maku. Vähän outo. Ei niin hyvä kuin voisi.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an opaque black colour with a disappointingly thin tan head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is of caramel, burnt toffee and roasted malt. The flavour is similar with a slight hint of coffee. Overall and excellent stout, possibly the best English stout I have tried.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5 bottle. Very dark brown color with an enormous, creamy, brownish head. Aroma of dark malts, bread, metal, and wet dog. Taste is malty, sweet, somewhat grainy and bready. A medium body, a creamy texture, and a flat carbonation. Finish is medium long and sourer than the rest. Overall nothing special, it has a distinctly English character but also a distinctly watery body.
