Taste: Tastes like ash. Quite fizzy for a stout. Rain after it dripped off a corrugated iron roof.
Appearance: The exact colour of a penguin flipper. If it has a head, then there is a nice penguiny contrast between the black and white - only one glass has a head though. Nice emperor penguins on bottle.
Would you buy 2? Maybe, I quite like it (because of its name)
Would you buy 4? I'd have to have the endurance of an emperor penguin raising its chicks to do that.
Rating (out of 7): 4**** Excellent name, excellent appearance, let down only by the average taste.
Location: Edale, Derbyshire
