Cask (CWAF2012, Fri)
My first moonshine of the year, and my-oh-my has this brewery finally got everything together after a couple of disappointments last year. Such a full roast, with dark berries, and just a corner of real black burntness. Taste is gloriously mellow for how rich the roast is. There’s no astringency. No sign of any alcohol here, or even attempts to cover alcohol with sugars. Amazingly, I got to this after it was tipped, and to be honest it was a little on the flat side - I’m sure this would have been stunning yesterday. Bonzer, Mark - I look forward to many more like this!

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2004
An intense black, rich, coffee accented stout. As others have noted, licorice, roast malt and bitter chocolate are also in evidence. Sumptuous, smooth, mouthfeel. Excellent stuff that bodes well for this new brewery. Cask (gravity dispense) at St Albans Beer Festival 2004.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2007
A Mes rate: Cask at The Wenlock.
Black and opaque with a thin rim of tan foam. Superb aroma of chocolate, liquorice, coffee maltiness and some lightly sour and delicately hoppy notes. Flavour follows on in the same vein. Lovely chocolate, more hops than you would usually expect and a lovely slightly sour finish with great length. Lovely mouthfeel. A glorious stout.
