3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours dark brown, with a smooth brown head.
aroma of roasted malts, faint licorice, faint dark fruits, faint coffee . aroma is very mild and very weak. appears to be complex though.
flavor is roasted malts primarily, some notes of dark fruits, some coffee, some sugary sweetness like milk caramel. flavor is a bit stronger than aroma, but still a bit mild or weak. in some strange way this one reminds me of guinness reg. to flavor. Nice session beer i’m sure.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl bottle, dark brown with fanciful light blue label. Pitch-black, impenetrable colour, small creamy beige head. Faint aroma of roasted malt and some chocolate. Low carbonation, slightly creamy mouthfeel, but a bit thinner than some other stouts. Roasted malts dominate the taste, with some dark chocolate on the side. Rather more bitter than some. Dark chocolate and coffee finish. Chocolat-y after taste, nevertheless. To me, this stout strikes me as a bit lighter-bodied, not as full and creamy. But the taste is very much all right. Sessionable stout.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A clean and sessionable pasteurised bottled stout. No obvious flaws but there’s not enough here to warrant a return visit. Black with a cappuccino head. Nice aroma - licorice root, cocoa powder, a whiff of dark rum. Reasonable heft to the body but thins in the swallow. Soft chocolate pudding flavours with a mild and notably alcoholic finish for a 5% abv stout. Marred by pasteurised boiled sugar notes. ( 500ml bottle from Leura Cellars. BB 26/8/09 )

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours black/brown with a nice brown head.
Aroma is quite sweet, a slightly burnt malt, and a bit of plum.
Flavour is quite burnt, good amount of coffee and a hint of chocolate. Quite astringent, dry finish.
It’s nice but not great.
