3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned at The Alehouse, Reading, Berks. Black with tan head. Rich, darkly roasted malts to the fore, liquorice and chocolate notes leading the way, dry with a hoppy bittering element. Full toasty and smooth. A really well brewed stout and a pleasure to drink.

Bottle from a pop-up market in Wokingham. Poured black, with a tan head, which dissipated to a halo. Aroma of roasted malt, liquorice and peat. Good, smooth mouth feel. Dark chocolate in the flavour, with some coffee and port. Finish was burnt malt, molasses and treacle.

Cask. Dark brown close to black with a medium sized good lacing white head. Vanilla, chocolate, cocoa, sugary dark malts, brown sugar, rye bread. Medium body and soft as velvet. Gentle carbonation, light coffee notes. Rich in flavour and oh so soft. It’s like a beer pillow.

Dark Brown with small light Brown foam ring. Aroma is not too strong, toffee. Taste is a stout, but not too extreme, bit weak. Aftertaste is long lasting. (Velp 201311)

Cask @ The Old Manor, Bracknell. Black coloured with a small rather dense brown head. Strong mokka roasted malty with an almost whiskey smokey hinted aroma with some vanilla sweet hints. Medium to full light creamy hinted palate. FInish is rather sweet, short herby noted but with a lack of biterness and roasted matls. Little dry older (dusty) ending. Quite a surprise, good aroma, no taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle from the brewery. A slightly hazy pour, cola-brown in colour with a ring of translucent head; aroma of deeply roasted malts and drinking chocolate; the taste is sweet, with well-done toast, chocolate milkshake, and some raspberry fruit; the finish is dry, soft and fruity. Very good indeed.

Cask at CP&K. It pours very dark brown with a small beige head. The nose is roasted malt, light smoke, charcoal, earth, iodine and peat-like notes. The taste is roasted malt, caramel, toast, light charcoal, dark fruit and light vanilla with a dry, roasty finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Easy going and pretty mellow. Decent
