Careful pour from a 500ml bottle keeping sediment in the bottle.
L: Pours a glossy black. A couple of millimetres of tan head quickly disappears. No lacing.
S: Smoky. Hints of coffee & cocoa. Sugar.
T: Sweet coffee (black). Some treacle. Smooth and long-lasting.
F: Light body. Prickle of carbonation. Leaves a coating on the tongue. Long, dry finish. Taste remains in the mouth for a good time after swallowing.
O: Would like a more potent smell. But flavours are well balanced and moreish. Sweet but not cloying. Mouthfeel is disappointingly light to start with but improves over time. The finish is long-lasting and extra dry. I like the way the sweetness of the style is countered by a sharp, bitter edge.

Pours full black with no head at all. Second pour I cleaned glass again and still almost no head. Nose is mildly sweet and sour with roasted malt in the background. Flavor is soft rounded roasted malt with the expected milky sweetness. Mouthfeel is nice and soft with the bottle conditioning. Overall, a very nice stout, but not really memorable.

500ml bottle-conditioned. Pours opaque dark brown. Diminishing tan head. Aroma: slight coffee. Taste: milky chocolate. Sweet. Mouthfeel: light-bodied, with lengthy mouthfeel and lingering chocolate taste. Overall: Very good beer. Sweet (lactose) stout made very well.

Served in a tumbler.

You gotta love the cool customers that head off for a trip to the UK and bring you back some liquid goodness. You're one of the great ones, Gwen! This stuff pours a clear black-brown topped by a finger of khaki foam. The nose comprises roasted malts, mild coffee, and a mild vein of cocoa powder. The taste brings in more of the same, everything coalescing beautifully into a smooth, semi-sweet melange of tastiness. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda creamy feel. Overall, a damn fine stout, one I wish was available 'round here, especially with this damn dearth of Mackeson's. Good times.
