This is clearly a quality product, but you really need to be a solid stout fan to enjoy and appreciate it fully. I’m not a huge fan of stout in general, and as a result my scores may be a little on the low side.
Regardless of that this is one hell of an impressive looking beer. As black as any I can remember, with a truly brown head. The mild bitterness that this gives, truly coats the roof of the mouth for an unmistakable stout experience. The after-taste was much more mellow. The whole experience was one I enjoyed, but if stout is not your bag it should remain an occasional, rather than a regular tipple.
Drinkability is high because there is a lack of bitterness and although this isn’t one, it drinks like a milk or sweet stout.
Reminded me of my dad drinking bottled Mackeson back in the 1970’s – a taste a child never forgets!
