3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On keg @ the Holyrood 9A
Appearance - opaque black/brown with a velvety looking texture. Proportionate creamy head.
Nose - chocolate and cream.
Taste - milk chocolate.
Palate - medium bodied with a lovely creamy texture and a fairly elegant finish.
Overall - good sweet stout. Absolutely nothing wrong, to get more marks, it would just need to be a bit more multi-dimensional. The one dimension is good though.
