Antzrhere (181) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2017 Bottle, Tesco. Pours black with tan head. Head dissipates quickly. Aroma of roast barley. Taste is coffee, charcoal, sweet malt and a slight creaminess to it . Medium to thin body. OK, would have been better if it was on draft as I found it a bit thin for the style

500ml bottle from Morrisons, which I picked up for 1 !!!!! Pours jet black as expected with a 2 finger tan head. Nutty sweet treackle malty creamy nose. Taste is really good; chocolate milky roasted nutty malt with a nice bitter finish. One of the nicest tasting stouts Iv had in a while, very thick mouth feel too for a 4.4 abv beer. Impressed will be buying more.

Musta olut kohtalaisella, kivasti pitsi jttvll beigell vaahdolla. Tuoksu herkullisen kermainen, maitokahvinen, paahteinen sek maitosuklainen. Maku jatkaa samalla linjalla ollen pehmen kermainen, maitokahvinen, paahteinen ja suklainen sek jlkimaultaan viel paahteisuus korostuen. Keskitytelinen suutuntuma ja todellinen jymy-ylltys prosentteihin nhden! Loisto-ostos!

berkshirejohn (6412) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2016
50cl bottle from Marks & Spencer, Camberley. An opaque peaty brown pour with a large tan head; caramel aroma; quite lively with a smooth creamy texture that coats the mouth, dry with a taste of well roasted barley and some milky oats; then a nutty caramel finish. A solid and satisfying milky stout.

Pours a deep black with a slight redness to it. Large frothy head that lasts well. Aroma is roasted malts with some caramel and hints of coffee. Flavour has the malts with some chocolate notes.

en har en krafig luft, smagen har lidt fylde og en en del lakrids, den skulle vre brygget p kildevand.
