2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
