COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
Strong, dark, luscious & notorious. Our multi-award winning beer. Probably the best vegan beer in Britain.

This beer was originally created and brewed by Andy Mitchell at the Spectrum Brewery. He has now passed the secret recipe to Beeston Brewery, so that the legend of this strong black stout continues.

StueyD (1070) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2013
A dark brown to black coloured beer with a thickish mocha coloured head. A rich roasted malt aroma, dark chocolate and nutty, then vinous dark fruits. Full mouthfeel. A bittersweet malt taste, the nutty and chocolate elements come through, which is followed by a slightly sour, vinous dark fruit flavour, that lasts into the finish. Bottle purchased from the Dobbies garden centre, Hardwick Retail Park, King’s Lynn, Norfolk.

tombyars (1317) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 5, 2012
Tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in May 2008. Cask, gravity dispense. Mahogany black in colour with a thin buff tan head. Superb aroma of sticky sweet banoffee pie, which is long in thick intensity. Seductive, creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malt complex gives a huge malty whack of Belgian chocolate, rum soaked raisins, which then give way to soft caramel and overipe bananas. Very little in the way of hop resins detected but sherry soaked black cherries are present in the alcoholic aftertaste. Finish is a battle royal between fruit and caramel with vinous malt booming in the mouth. A fantastic Dry Stout and this was beer of the festival for me. Worth making the effort seeking this out in cask , highly recommended.

Leighton (9878) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2011, Day 2. Pours dark brown with a big, light tan head. Dark malts galore in the aroma, some mild tang, light dark fruits. Sweet flavor - really good! Brown sugar, toffee and caramel, moderate roast. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish, good balance, mild dry roast malts, dark fruit, mild toffee. Very drinkable and good.

7 Lovely rich roasty aroma.
4 Deep brown, tiny head
7+ Very roasty and toasty, fills the mouth with richly roasted malts. Retronasals a little fruity in places.
4 Soft palate, carbonation low. Huge roasty finish.
15 Very rich. Flavour is big, but it doesn’t feel like a big beer.
