3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark, clear brown beer with a thick, beige head. Coffee and malt aroma. Taste is an initial hit of hop followed by the chocolate, coffee and malt but it’s the hop that lingers into the finish.
Nice one. Chocolate and coffee hints. Dark appearance. Nice hit on palate. Licorice as well. A good one in my comfort zone. Towey1989 (3429) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2016
Cask at The Picture House, Stafford (JDW) A clear brown colour with a medium off white head. Aroma of nuts, coffee, some roasted malts, slight chocolate and subtle dark fruits.
Taste of nuts, coffee, roasted malts, some chocolate, slight dark fruits and subtle biscuit. Light bodied but a watery texture. A dryish, roasted bitterness in the finish. Drinks like a stout with nice coffee, nut and roasted flavours, however it’s quite thin. Decent though. mike_77 (7232) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2016
