Cask at The Friendship, Fallowfield. Can’t really add to the commercial description above. Light on the palate for the style and a bittersweet finish. The orange notes were a pleasant surprise. Good winter beer.

jamesie1857 (1396) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2014
On cask at Sheaf View, Sheffield - Dark brown body, thick tan head, that laced all the way to the end. The nose is what you would expect, of dark chocolate with a hint of coffee and a bit smokey. This stout has no real bitter bite, is slightly sweet and very smooth. For a Stout it is light in the mouth and leaves no filmy residue. Very nice.

Cask at the Coach and Four, Wilmslow. Pours black with a large, off-white head. Aroma is bitter chocolate with a little roast. Taste has some roast to start and a bitter chocolate finish.

Cask Stillage at Fenton Manor Sports Complex, Stoke on Trent 22/10/2010 Fruit and roast aromas. Black rich on the palate and hoppy with a fruity orange flavour. A hint of dryness in a burnt roast finish.
