I bought this bottle in one Marks and Spencer in Paris. I drank quietly at home after a night with my family. In my opinion, it is a correct stout, easy to drink. The body is dark, average carbonation for a stout, thin foam. The taste is correct, not so strong, roasted malt, little coffee, hop, a bit watery.

Syfher (489) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 7, 2016
Bottle of 50cl, in a Guinness glass; room-temperature. We’re in front of a light stout. The body is creme-brown, with a little head. The aroma is malty, as the aftertaste. The main taste is a mix between coffee, chocolate and water... Great light stout

jamestulloch (4276) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 14, 2016
Bottle. Clear ruby/brown body with a thin beige head. Faint lacing. Aroma of sawdust, burnt toast and ash. Flavour of chocolate, wood and a sharp (not unpleasant) metallic finish. Thin body with a smooth texture. Light fizz. Smells of burnt malts and it’s very thin.

Cimbasso (977) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2015
Sampled from a bottle. Reddish brown going on black, with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and coffee. Taste of coffee and dark chocolate. Slightly chalky, mineral flavour and a watery mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Dry and bitter taste with hardly any sweetness. A nice Irish Stout.

EdKing (2640) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle from M&S Berkhamsted. Very dark brown colour but has reddish clairty and an off white head. Nose is minerally, roasted malt, barley cereal chaff, caramel. It’s not a hugely roasty malt nose. Bit of roasted black coffee. Taste is minerally, roasted malt, burnt malt, very dry roasted bitterness on the tongue. Almost sweetness at all.

Umami and red fruit. Dry and lightly roasty. Burnt-bitter. Hint of tangy fruit on the finish, reminiscent of Brett.
