ManVsBeer (5804) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2015
Bottle from Tesco, Brighouse. Black with next to no head. It’s thinner than expected stout with a slightly soapiness to its roasted malt taste, but this is more of the barley influence than anything else. Fairly easy drinking for its style.

Quite a nice surprise for a stout. Low alcohol and a creamy taste makes it very enjoyable. Went down very fast.
