3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Tesco's. More of a porter than a stout. Dark mahogany pour with a thin brown head. A weak aroma but a very complex bitter taste. The bitterness really defines this beer. This beer breaks all the rules but is highly drinkable for those people who like this style.

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.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle, a gift. ABV is 4.9%. Black colour, large to moderate brown head, nice lacing. The aroma has moderate roasty notes (mild coffee, chocolate and liquorice), also strong fruity and acidic notes (hops, lemons and orange peel), hints of coriander. The aroma seems a bit misplaced, but that might just be due to old habit. Smooth flavour, very pleasant to drink, mild roasty notes. Not much acidity in the flavour, just a hint of orange peel in the background. Moderate hops. Not sure if I could identify the coriander, if I did not know that it should be there. Don’t know if March of the Penguins will be imported to Norway (most other WB beers are, so it is likely that it will) - I would buy again.

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]
