4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A- Perfect. Deep ominous black body with thick creamy dark tan head. The head retention is excellent and a coating of lacing is left all the way down the glass.
S- Deep robustmalty smell. Some dark chocolate and coffee.
T- Good balance. Oatmeal can be detected. Some robust coffee and dark chocolate. Finish is clean. Taste is suprisingly light.
P- Thick syrupy body and low carbonation. Incredibly smooth and goes down easy.
O- This is a very drinkable stout. I would not hesitate to have this one again. Quite enjoyable.
Serving type: on-tap

Too bad this isn’t available in the US anymore...or the Winter Warmer, 2 of my favorite from Youngs. Almost opaque, poured into a Sammy Smiths pint glass, with an unusually silky texture and complex, medium-dry silky palate. Bittersweet smoke finish, this and Sammy Smiths Oatmeal stout are exceptional Stouts. Is anyone out there able to trade either one of these Beers?

Not much of an aroma when I first poured it, but after letting it open up for a few minutes I detected a wonderful mix of toasty and roasty goodness with a slight hint of caramel. Dark brown with a tan head. Medium body with a very slight sweetness and creaminess. Toasty flavor with hints of roasted oats and caramel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber into an English pint glass. The pour is dark black with some light through the edges. The aroma is some sweet with a dash of sour and a good drop of salty soy. The flavor has many layers, starting with sweet and a bit of sour followed by chocolate, salty soy, and smooth cream. The mouthfeel is carbonated but smooth and slick, going down easy.

Pours clear dark brown with a handsome ecru head. Aroma is toasty and roasty, lots of breads and grains and coffee. Flavor is dark chocolate and black coffee with a medium roasted bitterness and a light acidity. Mouthfeel is light but moussey in texture, making it easy to drink.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle: A decent brew, but I wasn’t all that impressed. Pretty brew and nice roasted malts, prunes, licorice, some nuttiness and soy sauce. Nice creamy mouthfeel. A decent brew, but their double chocolate stout is much better.
