Nose
A smoky and biscuity aroma of bitter dark chocolate, coffee and caramel.
Palate
Smoky, bitter coffee and plain chocolate with a light malty sweetness in the background and a touch of peppery warmth. Low carbonation means a soft mouthfeel.
Finish
Very dry, featuring more bitter coffee and chocolate.
Comment
A full-bodied stout with plenty of good roasted grain flavours but, on this occasion, not quite enough carbonation.

Nose
Like a new leather sofa.
Palate
Loads of roasted malt and dry coffee bean bitterness.
Finish
Drying, super bitter.
Comment
A glass of this with a chunk of cheddar would be awesome.
