Really good stout, the bottle has it as an imperial stout, which is more accurate.. Coffee and chocolate aromas, nice liquorice finish, if the abv was a couple of % higher, this would have a fuller mouthfeel, and be a world class beer.

Keg @ Knott Bar, Manchester. 7.2% (same as the bottled version). Black with a thin off-white head. Has a sweetened roasted malt in aroma and taste. It doesn’t feel its strength and has an underlying milkiness.

Garrold (2861) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2014
Tap at Cross Scythes, Sheffield. Just about black. Tan, thin, lasting head. Dark fruit chocolate truffle. Vanilla. Sweet, ripe, dark fruit. Hint of roast coffee. Taste is fruitcake sweet. Then a big roast dryness. Roast bitterness at the end. Sweetness remains in the background, though. A light saltiness in there, too. Long, dark chocolate, bitter finish. And all at £4 a pint!! Beautiful.

Craft Clerkenwell. Cask. 7.2%. Opaque black - brown beer with a small pale tan head. Smooth palate, modest carbonation. Smooth but rich dark malts. Little dark chocolate, not sweet. Whisper of coffee bitterness. Maltesers - not sweet! Whisper of nuts and tropical fruits. Finishes light. Pretty tasty.
