3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bargain at £1per bottle from Morrison’s.
Looks like Guinness. Smells a bit like Guinness. Probably tastes slightly better than Guinness.
Very chocolate(y), coffee(ish) and malty.

Really dark/black head disappears quickly. Roast malts are well to the fore on the nose and palate, has a good long finish. A well made, tasty stout, thoroughly enjoyed this!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Morrisons in Hatch End. Poured a pitch black colour with a dense tan head, which rapidly dissipated. Aroma was quite sweet, with notes of vanilla and cocoa nibs, but with some roasted malt to balance. Mouth feel was pretty full, but the forceful carbonation slightly dulled the smoothness. Initial flavours of black syrup, liquorice and tobacco. Finish was burnt malt, earth and pine needles. Not a bad stout, but the force, soda like carbonation is a bit of a downer.
