imdownthepub (10140) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2005
Cask Conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Black with ruby hint and tan head. Looks like a stout, but who would serve a stout freezing cold? what sons of B’s would make me wait before it was drinkable, well ok those idiots at Guiness think its a good idea, but an actual proper, well crafted stout should be treated better. Finally, I found it a little watery, the coffee, dark roast didn’t come through until near the end. Passable and I hope to try it agai, but fairly average.
