Bottled. Deep ambery brown colour with a small beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, figs, nutty, mild marzipan as well as mild dry dark fruity notes. Flavour is leathery, roasted malty along with some liquorice, fruits, wood and raisins. Rather bodied for a 4.4 % beer.

Dark and hazy. Light molasses, dark sugars, light fruitiness and a soft body. Dates, raisins and fruitcake. Great dark malt character here, and very nice balance.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at at ChrisO tasting, London. Pours clear, dark brown with a creamy, beige foam head. Dust dark malt nose, some tangy leather. Light sweet flavor with moderate tang, funk, light dirt. Medium bodied with heavy carbonation. Lightly sweet to finish with earthy bitterness and modest berries. OK. Lots of tangy fruits and leather, which don’t really work.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned at Minehead Beer Fest ’12. Black with cream head. Plenty going on with this stout, some baked vegetable notes but with a rich, saucy type note, then a hoppy bitterness, drying, chalky. Very pleasant.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Chriso - 25/09/12 thanks to Paul/Scopey.
Very dark mahogony brown with a thin mocha head.
Very fruity nose, slightly soured, cherries, dates, prunes.
Taste follows nose with dark fruit flavours, a little roast malt none of the usual stout features such as coffee, licquorice, chocolate nor is there any full on roastiness.
Lighter end of medium in body with a slightly sour finish.
I really enjoyed this one after an evening comprised of largely stronger stuff. Not your typical stout very fruity.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask gravity, Coventry 2011. Liquorice-coloured with ruby winks and a fine khaki halo. Wow; ink, marmite-smeared aubergine and smoked almond aroma. Light bodied but deep with peaty interest, grilled vegetables, barbecue and wee dram notes. Beautiful, soft, nuanced beer. At Leicester and Cov, stick to the Scottish stuff- ye cannae go wrong with it.

Cask-conditioned at the Minehead Beer Festival, 8/09/2012. Near black with a slight, tan head. Aroma of tart, dark fruits, decent roasted malts and a hint of milk chocolate. Full flavoured, with some prominent and tangy fruits, cereal malts and dryish finish. Very good.
