Ratings with a slight adjustment (but certainly not enough) for an old and infected bottle. Unappealing vegetal aroma. Some of this carriers over to the flavor. At least the smooth body is better than average.
Actually the flavor is decent if not as good as it should be. Good level of chocolate. gam (4078) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 31, 2010
Large tan head very dark stout carbonation medium aromas rich chocolate the smooth oatmeal caramel and vanilla flavour malt coffee first up good bitter oat meal not so strong as to give a smoothness rich chocolate a thin sort of taste reminding me of some other stouts that have put me off rich but thin tasting the bitter was good at the end in this one crabbey (17) - NEW ZEALAND - MAR 1, 2010
Pours bark brown, head diminished almost immediately. Nose is of dark molten chocolate, quite appealing. Body is quite thin, I expected more. Flavour is of more chocolate, cocoa, subtle roastiness, and low bitterness.
Nice enough beer, but I did expect a bit more. jonno (2917) - JAPAN - FEB 26, 2010
Nose is Nesequick and chocolate syrup - appealing in a nostalgic sense. Falls apart from their. Flat, dank and hard going even for 5%. Really thin and a strange tang to the finish. No carbonation after 5 minutes in the glass. Failed experiment but at least t Renaissance are giving these a go.
