3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Cask, Pimlico, 06/12/13.
Mid black with a moderate tan covering.
Nose carries a good coffee blast, light roast, cocoa, toffee fudge.
Taste comprises much the same but the depth falls away quite a bit from the excellent coffee laced nose.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, a little thin and watery.
Decent enough stout but falls away somewhat after excellent first impressions in the appearance and on the nose.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle): Pours black with a mocha head. Aroma is exactly like the smell of an espresso, really nice! Not much else in there, maybe a tad bit of sweetness from the malt. Just total espresso flavour, some roasted malt notes, burnt notes and a slight hint of chocolate on the finish. Slightly acidic on the palate but compliments the flavours well.

Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were coffee, roasted malts, burnt malts, ash and bitterness. Afteraste had coffee, ash and bitterness. A beer with nice coffee flavour but the end result was still unbalanced.
