A stonking good stout. Chocolate is the key component. Dark, bitter chocolate. I didnít realise it was an oatmeal stout and I canít say I detected any significant sweetness that normally comes from the oatmeal. Holds the attention throughout. Full flavoured and forceful, with a lasting, slightly sharp finish.. Cask (gravity dispense), Catford Beer Festival 2005.

Cask at JDW. Black or perhaps dark brown with a ruby glint. Creamy tan head on top. Roasted malt aroma leads into more roast in the taste with hints of liquorice and blackberry. Nice flavours but the beer was quite rough and didnít seem to hang together well enough.
