Really pleasantly surprised by this, though I’ve no idea why I should be.
This stout pours slow and thick and gives off a deeply rich chocolate digestive aroma.
The beer is impenetrably dark with just the merest trace of a head, and just the right amount if fizz.
My first mouthful was packed full of chocolate.
And I mean proper chocolate.
Stickily coating my tongue, there is that feeling of letting a square of Cadbury’s melt in your mouth.
But what makes this great is it’s a piece of chocolate with a decent pint of beer on the side.
And that’s because there’s also the satisfying coffee and rum of a good stout along with a delightfully light smack of hops right at the very end.
Just enough to clear away the flavours for the next mouthful.
