Tap at Roundhouse with Alex. Translucent brown cocoa pour with some tannish head. Aroma is powerful coffee with some chocolate underneath - very coffee-like, more so than many stouts. Taste follows - delicious chocolate and coffee flavors with a healthy amount of bitterness from the hops. Smooth palate without being too rich. Really nice brown ale, one of my favorites.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark brown color, topped with a decently sized and stable tan colored head. Lovely aroma, combination of coffee and chocolate, with some subtle grassy notes in the back. Taste is mildly sweet at first, a milky feel, a tad of bitterness with nice gentle coffee finish that lingers a bit in your mouth. Nice one, not too strong with not too excessive coffee presence. Very tasteful.

Malto, nocciole, caffè e zucchero caramellato: naso e palato sono dominati da questi aromi che si intrecciano con una discreta profondità ma il corpo è troppo lieve e manca quel mouthfeel cremoso o liquoroso che l’avrebbe consacrata meglio.

Bottle from the Grumpy Goat in Reading. Plenty of body, slightly spiced with a strong hop character. I didn’t really get the coffee flavours I was expecting from this. Its nice and tasty but doesn’t have a ’wow’ factor.
