3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pretty drinkable and complex sweet stout. Is it a porter or a stout? Medium mouthfeel, I would drink this regular if so available. Dark brown colour.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle. Dark brown pour, fizzy head that quickly dissipates. ARoma is coffee with a hint of smoke, bit of rootbeerish type notes, burnt toast. Flavor is a classic dryish oatmeal stout, some slickness, lower body for a stout and it is heightened by the high prickly carb; bakers cocoa, roast, hint of fruit. Pretty nice.
