On gravity at the Tewkesbury winter beer festival, 7/2/2014. Jet black with a slight, off-white head. Plenty of chocolate, some dark fruits, toasty malts and a dryish finish. Very smooth drinking.

Pours a very dark brown - black with a little light going through the corners and a small off white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, caramel and maybe a touch of licorice. Flavour is roasted malts, chocolate, light bitterness, licorice, and some sweet caramel.

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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle pours black in color with a finger and a half of light brown head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild with roasted grains and chocolate with hints of caramel. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness balanced nicely with a roasted grain bitterness. Medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. This is a nicely done stout with balanced flavors and good drinkability. Recommended.
