Bottle from abbeydale beer stop. Pours black with a small short lived head. Aroma is smokey with roasted malts and a bit of coffee and choxolate too. Taste is smoky ashy bitterness. A bit thin, and a bit prickly, but I may have it a bit too cold. Nice stout, ill be looking for it on cask.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A black colour with a creamy beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, milk chocolate, coffee and toffee. Taste of roasted malts, milk chocolate, toffee sweetness balanced coffee bitterness and a little smoke. Medium bodied and smooth texture. A dry, roasted finish with some liquorice in the aftertaste. A great balanced stout from a great brewery, can drink a few of these.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark but clear stout with a thin beige head. Aroma is fruity alcohol and coffee. Flavour starts off as bitter coffee but in quite a mellow way. There’s a fruitiness to it which levels the thing out a touch, with bitter dark chocolate underpinning the flavour and the coffee lingers well after the other flavours have gone. Not only very drinkable but due to the strength and not being as overbearing as some of these beers can be it’s almost a session stout as well.

Cask @ Fox & Goose, Hebden Bridge. Very dark but not black with a thin off-white creamy head. There’s a hint of sugar sweetness within its otherwise medium roasted malt-aroma and taste.
