3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is quite a nice beer. Quite a strong chocolatey/liquorice aroma which carries on throughout the taste. Quite a thick and bitter ale yet it does have a smooth element to it. Rounds off with a long and bitter coffee taste.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home served cellar cool in a wide mouthed snifter. Dark brown to the point of opacity, dense off white head. Mocha and nuts in the aroma, ccontinuing in the taste. All the usual suspects are present in this stout - licquorice, coffee, fruit and nut chocolate, dark jammy fruit, soy, but leaning towards a dry biscuity finish. Slick creamy smooth mouth feel. Very enjoyable beer.

Bottled (thanks fonefan!). Deep rubyish copper colour with a mediumsized slightly off-white head. Aroma is fruity, roasted, mild liquorice and some sweet maltyness. Flavour is rather similar with some mild chocolate added.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark almost black, brown coloured beer with a frothy beige white head. Light malty nose, with chocolate and coffee notes. Dry mouthfeel. Mild bitterness, roasted malt is matched by a smooth chocolate and coffee sweetness that lasts through to the finish. There is also a slight fruity flavour in the background.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, from Tesco Scunthorpe. Jet black, fluffy but shortlived cream head and moderate condition. Gentle liquorice and coffee in the nose with a developing phenolic burnt plastic note, pleasant powdery coffee bitterness in the mouth but quite soft and sweet behind the scenes with muted chocolate and a slight berry fruitiness. Finish is muted with a low coffee bean bitternesss, some woody vanilla and a slight chocolate sweetness

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Tesco. Jet with a fine, undiminishing cream foam. Black Jacks on well done toast aroma. Fine, liquorice-accented stout with dark berry streaks dusted with coal and bitter chocolate. Roasted nut linger. The orange and coriander sneaked well under the radar. Good, as The Brothers’ beers tend to be- especially those of a dark and roasted persuasion.
