Lost a point on appearance for me as it looked like cola with a head - too fizzy looking for my liking. Aroma of chocolate and fruit cake Not as peaty as some other stouts. Better as warmed up/ Would take again, Stewart don’t disappoint

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the brewery. Dark brown body with a thin beige head that quickly fades. Light lacing. Aroma of filter coffee and blackcurrant. Well balanced flavour of coffee, plum and liquorice. Hides the alcohol very well. Thin body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Average carbonation. Decent - would like to try this on cask.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from the brewery. Pours an opaque very dark brown, not quite black, with a thin tan head that quickly goes. Masses of roasted notes on the aroma, plus big liquorice and coffee notes too. Liquorice gets bigger with the taste, alongside a dark chocolate sweetness. Dangerously drinkable, with a very dry finish. Good stuff.
