I was impressed and surprised with the very smokey base underneath the chocolate flavours. It’s not as heavy as typical Belgian or American stouts but if you want a dark and not to heavy beer this is a worth a try.
Bottle from Tesco. Backlog rating from bottle collection and historic scoring. No tasting notes kept, just rating.

Bottled, 500ml from Grimsbury Londis, Banbury, Oxon. Black with cream head. There is a roasty, malty, bitter character to this, a fuller flavour than the ABV would suggest. There is some fruitiness, however; I would pitch this closer to a mild than a stout. Reasonable though. thomat (3988) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 26, 2015
Dark reddish brown with a small beige head. Malty and roasted tones. Malt, fruit , coffee and bitter chocolate. Medium to light body with a dry finish. Garrold (5442) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2015

Smooth, slick, creamy mouthfeel. Finishes long, mild bitter. Really good, smooth, drinkable stout. Brains is good, as someone once said to me...

Bottle from Tesco, consumed at home. Dark brown, high amount of carbonation, very little head. Enticing aroma of roast malt and a bit of coffee. Bittersweet taste, giving way to a bitter/sour taste and a bitter finish. Weak mouthfeel. Lacks the complexity and richness of a really great stout, but still enjoyable enough.
