Poured from the bottle (500ml), nice black beer with a huge creamcoloured head. Aroma of roasted malt and some hint of chocolate. This also comes back in the taste. The beer has a proper amount of carbonation which gives it a fresh sensation. This is a good stout with just an amount of taste and volume to lift it above average. Good!

My Bottom Line:
This Stout’s roasted malt bitterness and acidity is balanced out by chocolate, coffee, licorice and raisins, in nicely frothy mouthfeel.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A tower of foam rises above the brown-hued black, lacing nicely.
-Mouthfeel is on the dry side; probably feels so due to the higher-than-average carbonation.
-A minty touch appears in the finish as well.
-Oats contribute nicely to the mouthfeel.

Bottle at home. Aroma is roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, touch of dark fruits. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Body is a bit above medium and slightly creamy. Lovely dark roast and chocolate aroma, about as much depth as you can hope for from a non-Imperial Stout. Delicious.

Can from Oddbins West Hampstead. Very highly carbonated, billowing head, took forever to pour. Strong thick tasting stout, hoppy and bitter, roasty, slightly boozy, some bitter coffee. Good full tasting stout.
