The_Osprey (5950) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2016
Cask HP at Crosse Keys as ’Cairngorm Black Gold’, 4.4%. Black, opaque with a foamy brown head. Aroma is dark chocolate, fudge. Body is smooth with low carbonation. Taste is toffee chocolate, the werthers originals they did with chocolate, fudgey yet has a little ashy bitterness offsetting this. Overall, packs lots of flavour in for the abv. A tasty, creamy stout. Definitely good for a few pints.
