This is a really nice dark stout with a nutty nose and taste and an after taste that lingers, I would get this again and again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at spoons. Black with a bit of brown foam. Scent is mild malt properties and a bit stinky. Taste is pulverized pencil shaving malt with a fair bit of stickiness but otherwise fair. Finish is bland. Not bad.

A roasted malt taste, moderate sweetness with liquorice, coffee and burnt grainy flavours. A dryish bitterness in the finish.
