Bottle Aldi

Pours dark, chestnut sided black, nice tan head

Chocolate, tangerine some spice like cinnamon on the nose. Good

Fairly hoppy in flavour for a british made stout of this strength - grassy hops, liquorice, some coffee. evident hop - bitter finish (as opposed to roast malt bitter)

Medium body, touch of dryness, medium carb

This would be interesting to leave alone for a few months for the hop flavours to diminish a bit imo. Guess I'll have to buy another bottle or two :)

Pulled on cask in Kirkwall. Appears black with good tan creamy head, good lacing.

The smell was initially quite odd, along with the roasty malt and coffee there was a harsh assertive alcohol and phenolic spice presence that was unpleasant, but this faded as the beer mellowed in the glass.

Taste is really solid, rich creamy maltiness, coffee bean, still quite an assertive beer. Big and malty, still a lightish feel to it. Dark fruits and dryness, with some spiciness and earthy character.

Mouthfeel is filling and smooth, light carbonation with a roasty aftertaste.

A decent stout, not particularly amazing or sessionable, seems rather heavy for the abv. Good flavour though, but there are better beers from this brewery.
