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75cl Brown, cork and caged bottle, just out of date when reviewed (mid Dec 2010).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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
750ml bottle -
This was a freaky stout. OK, I get it that it’s a Belgian stout but I got this butterscotch-y thing on the aroma along with blackberries and Coke. No chocolate, no roasted malts. Berries, Coke and butterscotch. It wasn’t horrible, but...just....odd. Flavor brings some smooth caramel malts, more berries, licorice and dry chocolate powder. I can’t really consider this a stout, but whatever.

Delicious beer - English Ale meets Belgian tripel tradition! A delicious, creamy blend of stout coffee chocolatiness and Tripel yeasty sweetness. Smooth! Fruitiness, subtle, a fantastic beer!
