3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle from Tesco - Deep dark brown colour. Small but dense tan head. Roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate in the aroma. Sweet and a little bitter flavour of burned malts and coffee. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Burnt and slightly bitter aftertaste. Surprising that I’ve passed this over soooo many times.

WIfe bought at British import store near Brussels (Stonemanor). Legit stout. Higher ABV that I’m used to for Brit styles. Awesome, unique bottle like a flask (500ml). Poured into Lagunitas mason jar. Deep, inky. Head modest. Amazing aroma and super rich flavor. Actually this beer seems even heavier than it’s ABV, which I actually like with this one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is roasted malts, hints of dark chocolate and coffee. The taste is well balanced, same attributes as the aroma comes back in the flavor. Maybe a small hint of liquorice in there? A solid, pleasant bitterness enters to finish the job. Sadly it feels a little watery, to score high in my neighbourhood, but it is a really good single stout.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Un’ottima birra. colore ebano scuro con schiuma cremosa e vellutata di color avorio, si sentono subito le note tostate e di caffè, quelle di cioccolato al palato. Gradevole, ben luppolata e con un ottimo retrogusto. Assai beverina
