3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice with a truly english stout (i.e. only slightly carbonated, flat and malty)! Lack of carbonation gives way to a slowly building, sugar sweet alcoholic flavour that lingers for a long time. A bit bland smell, which improves along the way - but do I detect somewhat fleshy notes? Taste is caramel, cream, some liqourice and some smoke (though not too much) - all within the burned malt. All in all a nice and stouty beer, but not that outstanding.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is medicinal with some sweat and odd sour notes. Very off-putting....the flavor doesn’t get any better--sourness, still sweaty, acidic, and chalky. I didn’t really get any roasted notes. I imagine that the sourness in this beer was intentional which just didn’t work out well for it. Palate is boozy, thick.

Opaque black beer, residual tan head. Softish palate, a little dry and a little silky. Nice fruity dark malt, not bitter or dry. Tangy and with subtle roast and smoke. Unsweet dark chocolate. Finishes smooth with more tang and a touch of lactose. Nicely joined up and so very drinkable.
