This is a really nice dark stout with a nutty nose and taste and an after taste that lingers, I would get this again and again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2014
Cask at the NWAF 2012, Manchester. Almost black, thinish pale tan head. Aroma is quite sweet, licorice, some fruit. Flavour is decent, just didn’t wow me over all. It was up against some stiff competition from a heavy stout binge at the time.

gegwilson (1472) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2014
Bottle from the beer and wine shop in York. Pours black with a tan head. A nice, quite rich stout. Some good coffee and roasty notes. A bitter finish that is quite hoppy for the style. Good but not spectacular.
