3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottiglia 500ml Nel bicchiere si presenta con il caratteristico colore scuro del suo stile, schiuma consistente color nocciola. Al palato l’aroma è di malto tostato con intense note di cioccolato, caramello e fondo di caffè bruciato che persistono anche dopo l’assaggio. I suoi timidi 4,5% lasciano un po’ perplessi, attribuendogli una modesta corposità, accompagnata da una eccessiva carbonazione vanno sparendo in un deciso finale secco. Dispiace che i nostri supermercati, a differenza di quelli inglesi non dispongano di un buon prodotto come questo.

Bottle at home, 8th February 14. Pours a good looking beer, too much head for a stout though. A little fizzy on the palate, aroma is ashy some chocolate, taste is smooth, sweetish and some bitter hops. Not a bad beer

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark black/brown ale with a thick lumpy rich tan head. Nose is coffee, caramels, some honey, dark malts. In the mouth it’s rich and malty, but with a bitter kick. Lots of chocolate and toffee, but there’s a strong bitter trying to push through making this a nice drink - not too sweet, not too bitter. Strong flavour, not strong alcohol. Good stout stout!

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2014 Bottle as part of a gift pack from The Royal Exchange, Stone. Pours almost black with a huge fluffy beige head. Aroma is chocolatey and roasted malt with a hint of coffee. Taste is big on malt, smooth dark chocolate and espresso. Carbonation tickles the palate as it goes down and not too oily as sone stouts can be. Tasty.
