3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. It’s a dark brown beer topped by a dense, finger-thick beige head. Some licorice in the aroma after a while, with roasted malts, oatmeal and chocolate showing up first and doing most of the work. It’s full-bodied, lightly sweet, yet feeling dry on the palate. A decent bitterness blends in with the roasted malts, licorice and coffee in the mouth, lasting for a good while. Sure a fine stout, easy drinkable too. 151215

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Pours black with a small off-white head. No aroma to speak of. Taste is of roasted malts, hops, a bit of dark fruits and a bit of chocolate. Toasty and bitter finish. By no means bad but just plain boring and generic. The only real positive thing is the bitterness which elevates it to slightly more drinkable than a Guinness.
