(Bottle 50 cl) Dark brown, close to black, with a reddish hue and a small, brownish head. Dark, malty roasted notes with a solid dose of bitterness. Presumably brewed with some oats. Not the most impressive stout. 100405

harrisoni (14009) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2005
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

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - NOV 5, 2005
Very dark with a brown small creamy head. Roasted, light sweet aroma. The taste is bitter roasted malt. Quite a good ber but nothing extraordinary.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2005
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.
