4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500ml bottle. Rather fittingly, the colour is that of dark molasses, and it pours with a pale caramel head. The aroma is burnt cinder toffee. Soft and rounded texture, with flavours of burnt malt and smokey honey. This stout is pleasingly flavoursome, and pairs well with cake.

Had on tap at The Hop in York. Not much of a smell, super dark colour, watery to taste, sort of a bad aftertaste. Overall a subpar stout, wouldn't have again.

Pours a completely black color, topped with a very good-looking brown colored head with nice retention. Mild roasty aroma, some pleasant chocolate notes and a hint of coffee. Taste is mild, slightly sweet with chocolate with some minimal bitterness in the finish. Medium to full bodied, smooth and easily drinkable. Gentle but tasty.
