4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Black beer with frothy beige head and good lacing. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. The taste is a fine mix of the usual roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. But its well rounded and medium bodied. Very nice stout with a dry finish.
