maneliquor (3263) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2013
Cask from Cask Pub & Kitchen. Pours dark brown with a small, very firm beige head and great lacing. Heavy ash and burnt notes with roast and espresso. Smells good. Light vanilla and coffee in the taste. Reminds me of an iced coffee from back home. Some light roast behind it all. Thin mouth feel but I guess that comes with the ABV. Solid stuff for a low alcohol beer

jamestulloch (1570) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 21, 2012
Aroma: Dark chocolate and roasted malt.

Appearance: Black body with a large tan head that holds well. Light lacing.

Taste: Red grape and chocolate with a slightly tangy finish. Nice balance of citrus and malt flavours.

Palate: Medium body with a slick, oily texture. Average carbonation.

Overall: Brewed as a low ABV ’Irish style’ stout - I’d definitely choose this over Guinness.
