Molasses, robusto coffee and tar in flavour with a gentle mouth feel. Bit of hoppy bite to it as an aftertaste but not enough for my liking. Could do with more ethanol in it. If you desire a session stout then this is for you, but I like stouts to have a rich mouth-feel and a good hit of alcohol and a bit more bitter. Stout lite!

Served in half pint glass

Enjoyed at Churchill Arms on Christmas Eve while visiting London.

A: Medium brown. No visible head, but a few soapy, tan bubbles appear after I take the first sip.

S: Coffee, dark chocolate, and burnt/well-toasted dark roasted malt. Hint of candied pecans and molasses. Coffee notes come thru more than anything else though.

T: Bold, dark roasted coffee start to finish. Not too much else going on here and that is kind of boring to me. I get a little dark roasted malt and chocolate, but these subtle flavours are overshadowed by coffee.

M: Medium bodied and almost no carbonation.

O: A somewhat enjoyable english stout served on cask; however, I personally think it smells better than it tastes as there is just nothing going on for me other than coffee. I'd be curious to try this on draft and a little colder to see if the profile of the beer changes as temp changes.

Bottle at Heathrow. Almost black pour with tiny beige head, barely more than a ring. Roast grain, burnt toast and a touch of sweetness for the aroma. Body seems a tad light. Taste had the roasty bitterness up front, minor sweet flavors. Not bad, but on target.
