4/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12oz short brown twist, no freshness date.

Appearance: Black in colour with a light brown bubbly rocky head that clings to the glass.

Smell: Some toffee, dark carob and faint alcohol aromas.

Taste: A good dose of roasted/toasted and light burnt flavours, firm malty body with a semi crisp smoothness. A little more bitterness from the roasted flavours than the hops, but the hops are still very noticeable. Lingering roasted flavours dry this brew into the after taste but there are still some residual dextrins that remain.

Notes: Full bodied dry stout ... roasted flavours are done to a T, good drinking for stout lovers.

Serving type: bottle

3.51/5  rDev -8.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

A: Solid black body. Slightly beige head which dissipates quickly.

S: Not much of a nose but some smokey fudge and caramel.

T: Thick and full of fizz. Smokiness and earth, just on the right side of dry. No chocolate and in fact no malt character at all but there is some caramel in the aftertaste. Sharp and assertive but lacking backbone. Not as hoppy as I was expecting.

O: Totally lacking in malt character and one dimensional but still quite drinkable.
