Brown 500ml bottle, 5 days out of date (best before End of Nov, drank on 5th Dec).

Poured into a Westmalle Chalice and the rest into a Palm tulip, it had yeast within (bottle conditioned), so I had to pour in one go.

Really deep, dark brown/black in colour. A small tanned head soon became a collar and wisp.

Burnt toast, coffee, dark chocolate and tarmac all came to my nose along with a Peat Bog Fire aroma.

Very dry and bitter, the toast and smoke from the Peat Bog fire come through in the taste.

A bit thin for a 5.0% Stout, very little body. The rear label mentions wheat as an ingrediant, that might explain the lack of a deep feel to the beer.

Overall not bad, but I was expecting a little more from this beer.
