Cask@TheVictoria, Walsall. Black beer with large foamy head, Aroma of dark roasted malts and coffee. The taste is of smooth coffee and dark chocolate with roasted malts knocking around. This is a medium to thick bodied stout, very easy to drink. A very good stout I would highly recommend. Porter tastes with a stout texture.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Fountain Inn, Walsall. Poured a dark mahogany with a thick tan head. The aroma is surprisingly weak with just a hint of maltiness. The flavour is medium bitter and of liqourice and malt. A decent stout, but lacks body and there are better examples out there.
