4/5 rDev -1.7%
Presentation: 330mL bottle.
Appearance: Chocolaty body with plenty of head and lots of lacing.
Smell: Very sweet. Almost a bit like a milk chocolate bar, not something I desire from my beer.
Taste: exceptionally smooth for a 7.5% beer. Very reminiscent of an extra stout but with an added bonus. Taste is also a bit sweet but it doesn't take too much away from the beer; the alcohol and slight hop bittering take the edge off nicely.
Overall: After having this hyped up a bit I was slightly disappointed. It is the best beer I've had on my visit to the UK thus far. Added points for excellent mouthfeel and drinkability.
