3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smoky and dry.
Probably my favourite bottle-conditioned stout from the UK.
A bitter, sour (but pleasant) taste. Widely available from supermarkets and off-licences in the UK..

I smelt roasted barley or coffee. Somehow I would like to have more body for this stout. Maybe oats would have made this beer better. But three star is good. Taste ends with mild hops but hoppy taste lasted quite a while.
