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..

Espuma abundante demais. Olfato neutro, sem caracteristica. Paladar ácido, café torrado além do ponto ... decepcionante

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled variant. Very lively and bubbly but really tasty. Black body with a creamy head. Full bodied. Traditional stout without much chocolate or coffee flavour.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Pitch black, big tan fluffy frothy head, good lacing
