4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
First introduction was nearly 10 years ago. It was really cold, and I got a present in beer. I had to travel by coach for 3 hours, and this beer kept me a good company. Last time sampled it around March 2014. Still perfect stout with loads of dark malts and chocolate. Every time I see it, I get a bottle or two.
