Cask at the Magpie, near-black with a clingy mid-coarse beige head and aromas of bitter cocoa and a little coffee and plum. Rich and winey, yet dry and bitter with hints of smoke and liquorice. Gorgeous.

Nov 2012 - bottle of ’Kinder Stout’. Pours with a fizzy quickly dissipating head. First impression of taste - nice stout. Good mouthfeel. Mild roasted barley and coffee flavours. Very mild really, and not much to set it apart from other stouts. Nice though, very drinkable.

Yes. Very nice. Buxton always do it. I gotta go this summer. Love that part of the world and my beery love would make it all the more enjoyable. There’s some mellow chocolate to this which is just perfect. A 4.1% bottle of loveliness. Smooth indeed. Shame I was feeling pretty shite when I poured it and after a few sips the missus joined me. I gave her a sample and she promptly drank the remainder. Stouts could become a more regular feature I’m thinking.

Bottle. Very dark brown, average and fully diminishing light brown head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, lots of roasted malt - light burnt malt, light coffee and faint hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and dryish flavor, roasted malt with light coffee, light hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dry, lots of roasted malt - light burnt malt, light salty licorice, faint coffee and light hoppyness. Nice dry stout with roasted malt - could use more body.
