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.

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!
