Cask, The Dispensary, Liverpool. Very stout like in appearance - black with a creamy tan head. Roasted malt aroma with some dark fruit. Quite full bodied. Flavour had more malt with elements of chocolate and raisin. Hint of smokiness in there. Very well rounded and drinkable. Dig it !

Taste coats the wouth roasted honey again the softness a bit of berry fruits, very slight tartness in the finish. Very different beer for me but one id like to try more of.
