£1 for a bottle from Morrisons, can’t really go wrong for that! I have tried Shipyard IPA which I was less than impressed by! This is a nice stout, nothing too special but certainly drinkable and smooth. I reckon I’ll get a few more in!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a black colored body with a finger of light brown head.
The smell had a light bitter chocolate, coffee with some sweet roasted malts.
The taste was sweet through previously mentioned flavors, slightly roasty.
The palate sat about at a medium, fairly sessionable, dry bitter aftertaste and finish.
Overall, this was good for the style and good for me. I also was able to make a decent Black & Tan with the Pumpkinhead.

Bottle at home, courtesy of dad (cheers dad) Sunday 9th March 2014 Looks wise this is brilliant, black with a tan head, looks lovely. Roasty initially it is a tasty stout but a little thin, however it is smooth and a little silky, very enjoyable. A7 A5 T7 P4 Ov14 3.7

Dark black thick beer. Smells of wet roasted chocolate smells. Creamy coffee bitter taste. Smooth leaves light creamy coffee behind.

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.
