(Bottled) A basic simplicity to these low boozed up stouts make them easy to sink -if nothing exciting , mostly . The palate is creamy and dry roasted =with resulting dark fruit notes . Looks like cola -tastes like coffee , so a ’textbook’ Stout consquently .!!!

Pleasant enough stout, good roast malt nosea nd flavours, but really lacks body. Quite a refreshing style, but I was expecting something with a bit more to it. It has light spicy notes, nice, but........!
