Big bubbly light tan head, goes down quickly, decent lacing. Very dark brown body. Nose of dark chocolate, berries, hint of cinnamon. Flavour is roast coffee, dark fruit, cream. A little hoppy bitterness on the finish. Creamy full mouthfeel, light carbonation. A very easy drinking stout and one of Williams Brothers finest efforts.

Davvero una buona cosa sta marcia dei pinguini. Cremosa ed egregiamente cioccolatosa all’aroma e al gusto. Note di caffé, malto tostato e una speziatura leggera. Buonerrima.

Pours dark red, almost black color with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of faint chocolate, ash, some cocoa, dark malts and subtle hops and fruits. Flavor of roasted malts, dry dark chocolate, cocoa and malts, mild wooden notes also, spices on the finish. Dry bitter malty palate, somewhat salty creamy finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle bb Mar 2015. Pours a ark brown/black with a tan head which dissipates quickly. Looks good. Aroma is milk chocolate, vanilla, bread. Medium body, medium carbonation - quite a bit of fizz. Milk chic again, with bitter coffee, a touch of dark fruits, a hint of citrus, a little coca-cola and a bitter, slightly metallic, finish. Overall, not bad.
