Originally sampled on 9 May 2002. Great chocolate/coffee flavor. Wonderful aroma. In my opinion, this is a great stout to use to introduce beer geek wannabees to some of the heavier artillery. The chocolaty taste & nice aroma will ease them into the world of better beer.

Hoppy, golden/copper color, light, clean, crisp and a very refreshing highly quaffable special bitter. Bags of malt and hops - but perfectly balanced flavors. A cracking session beer with a dry finish. A popular lunchtime beer in the Fernandes Brewery Tap, as drivers can drink 2 pints of this. But don't be fooled by its low strength for this style, it does drink like a Special. One of Fernandes first and still most popular brews.
