Poured into a Guiness pint glass jet black with a creamy nitro cascading light beige head atop.Aromas are light with chocolate mocha notes and a bit of tin.Although the nitro pour gave off a creaminess in the head it was really thin,even for the the style.Flavors of dark roast coffee,bitter chocolate and earth,mild flavors with a thin feel is not the best thing in the world.I was expecting better from a pretty good brewery but this just okay.

On tap in Elie, Fife.
Thick creamy head looks like a nitro tap. .
Aroma: Dominated by dank and earthy English hops. Disappointing.

The flavor is quite fine. Somehow the hops fade to the background, excepting the mild-moderate bitterness. Solid dark malt flavor with just faint hints of coffee.

Awesome looking and no actual flaws, it still falls short as other say. The bigger brother looks promising though.

Poured from a 14.9 oz. nitro can. Has a black color with a 1 inch head. Smell is dominated by coffee. Taste is of coffee and roasted malts, smooth and refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is not overly flavorful for a stout, but a pretty good beer nonetheless.
