500 ml bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours black with a beige head which quickly disappeared. Nose is toffee and some malt and the taste follows the nose.

Appearance - Tight moca foam head with good retention, light fizzy CO2 activity around the side of the glass and deep dark roasted barley malt colouration.

Smell - Coffee and dark chocolate roasted barley malt aroma with some mild biscuit. Smokey character and light fruit elements of cherry, apple and plum.

Taste - Great sweet nutty malt element up front with bitter coffee and dark chocolate back all balanced by light elements of cherry and plum.

Mouthfeel - Dry and smooth with a creamy feel. This is basically what you want in a milk Stout mouthfeel so this one is pretty much on point on all fronts.

Overall - Perfectly balanced stout this one is on point on all fronts and is a deserved winner of its 2012 best porter/stout award from the WBA. If you see this buy it you will not be disappointed. Great with Egg curry or foo-young dishes.

(purchased at Binny's on Marcey - poured into a proper British pint)

A: clear, dark brown liquid with strong ruby highlights... tall, fairly medium brown head on the pour, falls down in short time, but leaves a nice, messy cap - full coverage... the foam initially had a look as though the beer's cleanliness might be in question... we'll see...

S: you notice right away that something is off, or rather, different... starts off with a clean sort of wet slate scent, soon pulling through dry coffee grounds and a bit of toffee on the end... a shy overall smell that takes a strong whiff to get to whisper

T: again, coffee grounds with a vaguely molasses, sort of hard-baked, dark cookie flavor in the finish... fairly malty all through, showing some citrus pith-y bitterness and tang in the middle... roasted notes rise up quietly toward the finish and are somewhat rounded off, tempered by a moderate, lactose sort of bittersweet-ness - though not all that sweet... hops in the aftertaste?

M: pretty silky smooth with a soft, static, roasty buzz on top... a texture I've come across in a few darker British bottles... dry drop, though it leaves a little residual film... satisfying for what it is

O: by the end, pretty nice... pleasant degree of roast and body for what it is... I would have this again for sure - try to pair it with some selections from the raw bar though
