500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. OK this is it. No more Wychwood beers for me. Don’t care about the ratings anymore. I had one pint of the Prince Albert on cask that was fine, but otherwise, a waste of my drinking capacity. No more. This one has a thin beige head. Dead choc/coffee malt aroma. Some sourness in mouth with bitter choc kicking in. Lacks depth, character and taste. Thanks Wychwood for the variety, but no thanks

A Mes rate:
Hmm I’m not particulalry sure how spell binding this is. In fact its pretty poor to be honest. Nothing much going on all round really. The aroma is bland, slight grass and malt but nothing to write home about. Flavour is more of the same. Roasted malty nothingness. Very light bodied. In fact I think it is a bit of a push to call this a Stout. Much more like a watery dark mild. Dont get me wrong it’s not awful, just very bland.
