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.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml dark bottle from Tesco. Smooth and attractive dark beer with chocolate and roasted notes. Finishes with a gentle rasp. Easy drinking and very pleasant. Didn’t notice the coriander and orange zest, but I assume they did their bit to add to the pleasant taste. Hmm - I could be persuaded there is a coriander warmth in the finish. Decent drop. [3.6]

Pours out of the bottle in a deep black colour with steady low head and medium body. Aroma of malt and torf. Taste of intense malt, leaves, woods, bread, spices and coriander. Very light bitter hoppy finish. Nice beer and I enjoyed it a lot.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle by June 2013. Nose of roasted barley, heavy chocolate and chicory, has some hops to remind of Black Sun. Very dark red-black body with a noisy tan head. Taste is semi-dry but a little sweeter to start, roast is black but relatively gentle with milk chocolate, nice tropical hint but also traditional (orange) citrus and a little astringency. Touch of spice scratch (coriander). Otherwise silky smooth light-medium body, minimal carbonation, and they cut this with wheat. Enjoyed.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Dark in the glass with a dark beige head. The beer starts dark - roasted. Directly at the beginning enter the roasted barley flavours the mouth, even before the typical stout-sourness can be noticed. And highly drinkable for this dark and roasted brew. Dark chocolate, heavily roasted espresso-beans, crust of very dark bread. Great! And still soft, not importune.
The aftertaste is long, slightly stout-sour with a bit of nice and still mild hop bitterness, and lots of roasted aroma! Only the corinder and the orange zest is not clear to me.
--> A great beer! And due to the moderate alcohol not too sticky or viscous.
