Bottle from Corks of North Street. Opaque and almost black in colour, with a big and billowy beige head. Aroma of muscovado sugar, dark fruits and plan chocolate. Flavour of roasted malts, more fruity sweetness and chocolate, leading to a slightly dry finish. Very good.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very slightly metallic bitter chocolate aroma with dark roasty notes and indeed an intriguing hop character. Texture is thick and flavour is chocolatey and delicious with a perfect amount of bitterness and burnt flavour. An absolutely fantastic stout.
