3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice and dark. I donít know what that means either Mr Bishop but it fits this stout..nicely? Malty, chocolate, roasted. Very enjoyable. I quite like this drinking lark, think I may take it up on a more permanent basis. Need better glasses though...

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A massive 0.5l bottle. This bottle has to weight at least 2 or 3 kilos. Anyhow, it pours a clear a clear deep deep ruby-brown body with a small but heavy lacing beige head. It smells light roasted and berry-sweet, some clear chocolate tones here and perhaps also some burned caramel. Not horrible. It has a really thin oily texture and itís quite soft carbonated. Light roasted flavors also, some chocolate. Really easy to drink, and itís leaving a mild dry tongue. Not bad, not great. 20.07.2012

Roasty malt, coffee, some chocolate, and a nice hit of hop bitterness in the finish. Good beer, slightly disappointed that its head didnít last at all well but really enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle at Bittles Bar, Belfast. Pours very dark brown, almost black with a small off-white head. Light aroma of roasted malt with hints of coffee, chocolate and caramel. Lightly sweet with a nicely balanced bitterness. Quite light in flavour, but a pleasant stout that goes down easy. Refreshing and very nice stout. (2011-06-09)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown 500ml bottle, best before 11th June 2009, drank late Jan 2009.
Poured into a Uk pint sleeve glass.
Dark: no darker than what you are thinking, we are talking, really dark, coalface dark. The tan head sat on top doesnít, canít hang around for long, it drops to a thin covering and a bit of lacing even before I started to drink the brew.
The aroma is dark chocolate first, then coffee, then toasted oatmeal biscuits and malt.
The taste is a mix of the smells, more burnt than toasted, but still true to chocolate, coffee and oatmeal. Hops and roasted peanuts can also be added to the rich flavours found in this beer.
Creamy and fullbodied, the flavours stay in the mouth. It feels well above the 4.5% it claims, the alcohol sits happily within the brew, but appears stronger in the aftertaste.
A very drinkable stout.
