3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 09/10/13. A black beer with a nice brownish head. Quite a slick tasty stout. Fruity notes but there’s a lot of banana all the way through. Quite pleasant but a little strange.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Tescos of course. It poured a deep mahogany with a lovely frothy tan head and a slightly oily consistency. So far so good. Sadly it didn’t last. The aroma was weak roasted malt with a little liqourice. The flavour was medium to strong bitter with a malty, fruity, liqourice, slightly watery palate. It was a cheap supermarket stout and you get what you pay for. Sadly though I think that it wouldn’t be too hard for Marstons to make some noticeable improvements... but they didn’t.

Thin tan head. Clear black pour. A bit thin for a stout.

Black, no head and full-bodied. Has a light but fair aroma, although its bland in its roasted malt taste.

Vinegar in a stout. ABL members laughed at my facial contortions as i drank it. Not good enough.

Share with Bish. Y’all know the obvious idea for a review of this so I’ll avoid cliche and simply say that this is simply not good enough.
