3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark brown, light beige and quite bubbly head. Toasted bagel, dried figs, rye bread and brioche. Light sweet and sour body together with the toasted malts. Sweet aftertaste. Disappointing. (33cl bottle, very cheap)

750mL c&c thanks to Travlr. Deep mahogany pour. Large carbonation. Mild gusher alert. Overcarbed with large tan foam leaving sheety 360 lacing. Dark cherry and smoldering smoke nose. Taste is rich, sugary, dark cherries, loads of sugar, mild smoke. Interesting. Sweet and savory.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
75cl Brown, cork and caged bottle, just out of date when reviewed (mid Dec 2010).
Looked stoutish, black body, light tan head, which gave some heavy lacing as the beer sank down the glasses.
The smell was chocolate malts, hints of roasted/toasted malts too.
The taste followed the aromas, but with more umph. Having said that, it wasn’t flavoursome or highly tasty, just a pleasant stout type beer.
Well carbonated and a little on the thin side for a traditional stout.
OK, but not a world beater.

Dark black colour with some nice ruby redness shining through, full off white head. Smells sweet and malty. Tastes very sweet, sugar and alcohol. Too much carbo and a full sugar body.
