This is a black pint with a thin white head Nice to hold in the mouth till swallowed then leaving a strong after taste for some time after But before you swallow take it to the back of the tong and drive it past both sides of the tong One to get again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rodsquad (200) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - MAY 5, 2017
Can from Westhill Service Station. Pours shiny black with thick tight tan head. On the nose there is light ash and licorice, dried dark fruit with a soft cocoa powder finish. Tastes as nose but with a smooth roast malt front. A surprisingly light body that is gently carbonated. The smooth roasty flavours are bang on making this a top drawer stout. Excellent.

Aragh (258) - POLAND - MAY 1, 2017
Pite na wyje?dzie. Kolor hebanu z rdzawym refleksem. Piana drobna, zdobi szk?o. Zapach kawowy ze s?odk? nut? czekoladow?. W smaku raczej wytrawne, lekko palona kawa, ?mietanka, gorycz kawowo-zio?owa, nie bardzo intensywna ale ju? powoduj?ca ?e piwo bardziej przypomina black ipa. Nasycenie ca?kiem wysokie jak na styl.

330ml can.Im a big fan of Magic Rock -they ar one of the better UK acraft brewers but this isnt their best beer. Good coffee aroma and a nice black appearance with a tan but not strong head. For me the taste is too bitter - too much on the burnt side and less on the sweet side that makes a really good stout. However works quite quite well with an American Rye or Bourbon whisky that provides that sweet balance.
