Jet black pour with a disappointing head and not much lacing. Lots and lots of sediment, a little too much for my liking in this style. For whatever reason, the sediment in the jet black body looks slightly off-putting (perhaps that’s the Guinness perfect pint syndrome).
Aroma is very sweet, with some coffee and a little chocolate. I suspect that the aroma would be too much for some people, but I like the sweet malt nose.
Tastes are bitter sweet, with a decent bite in the lingering finish.
Mouthfeel is very light and refreshing, really rather mild and unusual for a stout but I enjoyed it. The lightness in the mouth did not detract from the enjoyment, if anything it added to it.
Pretty good overall, a light drinking stout, but at the same time tasty and satisfying. I’d go back.
