3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a small head. Aroma is rather rich with roasted malts, espresso and unfortunately some weak vegetable-like notes - probably from the coffee. Flavour of roasted malts, coffee, grass and some mild sweetness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and thinnish mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pint at the Nags Head in Reading. Black with a bubbly light brown head. Light chocolate malt flavour, smooth and a touch sweet. Chocolate malt hints in the aroma, otherwise quite plain. Its fair, but ultimately lacks depth.
