This beer starts off nutty & chocolatey but quickly becomes flat & watery - it could do with doubling up on the malt bill. Rated by BrewTom

jjsint (924) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Cask @ NWAF, Derby. Very dark brown, almost black. Opaque. Malty, nutty, slightly sour aroma. Sweet, easy, malty taste, somewhat less complex than promised by the aroma. Undemanding, refreshing stout.
