On Cask at Whey Pat, St andrews. Dark Brown/Black, with a little lace and whispy film. Aroma of mocha, and a slight roastiness. Taste has a good roast malt presence with a dry bitterness, this carries on to the finish, mostly dry bitterness and malt. Not much complexity, and the mouthfeel is bitter and slightly watery, its on the light end in terms of stout body, easy-drinking though and good and dry. Fairly average stout, gets the job done, but I would get it again soon.

440 ml nitro-can poured into a Pint glass
Appearance... black beer with head colour beige/white of almost 2 fingers that stays until glass is empty
Aroma... roasted malt. Fresh and not too strong smell with a little touch of coffee aroma
Taste... touches of coffee grain and chocolate with malt but in a light style, bitterness appears too ,lasting all the time,
Mouthfeel... medium body and medium/soft carbonation
Overall... a very nice stout, bitterness is present in a light style, refreshing beer too because is not full bodied as other stouts and taste is rich but moderate, perfect for summertime
