3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. The second batch (4.8%) from this interesting new Bristol commissioner wannabe brewery. Nicely balanced between soft, lush and silky, like a proper milk stout but lacking roastiness and could wear a bit more hop. Obvious lactose – a little too sweet. Reminiscent of early days American efforts no clone and promising.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at Bruce’s. It pours darkest brown with a small beige head. The nose is sweet, roasty, creamy, vanilla milkshake, cocoa and earth. The taste is bitter-sweet, roasty, toast, milk chocolate, vanilla, mild acidity and cola with a dry, earthy finish. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. A touch thin if truth be told. Smells pretty good, but body doesn’t deliver.
