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..

500 ml bottle. Pours dark brown with big, long lasting tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Light body with soft carbonation with dry finish. Bit too light for my taste.

Tap. Earthy roasted malt aroma. Classic black with cram top. Served from the craft corner so in my view over-chilled. This may explain why the flavours were more muted. Bready rather than biscuity with the barley outweighing the hops on the first taste. Some Smokey undertones and one can detect where the vanilla stout hails from. While more to my taste than most Guinness served this may keep me in the mild porter camp.

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