3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Black with a creamy off-white head. Has very light roasted malt notes, and its very milky character accounts for this, although feels thin in the palate for it.

Mörkt brun sojaliknande färg. Mycket len och ganska söt smak med en fudgeaktig eftersmak. Lättdrucket trots väldigt mörkt öl.

Bottle at home. Has clear and deep brown to black colour. Not so much foam, but a little beige colored. Roasted notes in the aroma along with more coffee, chocolate truffles and some leather. A little gentle aroma on this. The taste is light and sweet with more roasted malt, chocolate and some rubber. Mouth feel is silky and light, with an expected low bitterness. A nice sweet stout. A little gentle version, but is fairly easy to drink.

Aroma is really sweet and no roughness what so ever. It almost smells a little sugary. The taste has that milk chocolate feeling, a touch of vanilla and there’s is some darker roast coming through in the end. There is almost no bitterness at all here, but still I find it pretty enjoyable, even if it is on the weaker end. Acceptable.
