355ml bottle from Morrison's Supermarket (£1.50):
Black with a thick looking, quite creamy head that is a dark shade of tan brown in colour and holds well at about a centimetre tall.
Dark roasted malts & some chocolate upfront with some sweet notes that follow this. There is some milky chocolate and a dark fruit smell that is pretty standard for the style before finishing with some earthy tones.
Earthy & roasted malts kick things off with a sweetness that is coupled with some dried fruit and darker flavours such as dates and prunes. There is a bitter chocolate taste that follows this with some roasted barley and a little coffee too.
Light medium body and seemed more watery than I had expected. There was definitely evidence of stronger than average carbonation but this died down some as the beer settled.
A disappointment as far as I'm concerned, a beer that was a little thin and definitely lacked in both flavour and smell. A run-of-the-mill stout which is a shame because I was looking forward to this one.
