2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle. Dark brown with a frothy caramel head. Faint roasted malt aroma, with an almost imperceptible touch of cream. The flavour is weakly roasted, with black olives and slight cream; it would be much more satisfying if it were more intense.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
50 cl, bottled. BB APR16. Pours virtually black with a decent beige head. Aroma: Roasted malt, licorice. Coffee, berries, fruity tones. Taste: Pleasantly sweet, pleasant mild bitterness. Banana, fruity tones. Pleasant notes of licorice and roasted malts, slightly staled coffee. Chocolate, mildly salty, savory taste. Palate: Medium-light body, minimally oily, some carbonation, a bit thin. Moderately dry, bitterish finish, some roasted tones, nutty flavours. Lacks quite a lot on palate, considering abv. Pretty nice stout that has some character.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Thistledown Farm campsite farmshop. Consumed at home, Sunday 20th September 2015. Pours dark brown, a safe easy going stout , a little thin and perhaps even a touch watery, but that said it still tastes fine with all the usual stout attributes shining through. I am getting some cucumber, however that is likely to be from the Fattoush salad that I have been making. Malty with a little caramel and a little sweet edge, I am being unfair this isn’t a bad stout at all. A6 A4 T7 P2 Ov13 3.2

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours very dark brown. Taste has chocolate, malts, coffee, a little bit toffee. Despite all these things, it does end up being a bit on the watery side, not a very strong taste. Ok to drink, anyway, mostly due to the slight taste of coffee.
