Cask pint from the lescar, Sheffield. Dark reddish brown, with no head. Smell of burnt toast. Taste is much better, roasted malts and a hint of sweet treacle. Unexpected bitter aftertaste too. A bit thin but as a result it is more drinkable.

Pleasant milky roasty aroma. Very dark reddy brown, decent light persistent tight head. Impressive aroma for a sparkler, to be honest. Lovely rich malty and roasty palate and taste. An easy drinker, but nicely full flavoured. Often not a fan of milk stouts, but this has pressed my buttons.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Woodmans Rest, Shirley, Solihull. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is creamy caramel sweet malt. The flavour is medium bitter light sweet with an earthy mineral malt light medicinal palate. A decent stout but I expected more sweetness and I suspect the keg was coming to the end of its life.

Cask @ Ship Ashore, Willen. Dark brown with a quickly dissipating beige head. Coffee, crystal malt and black pepper. Taste is burnt espresso bitter with a bitter finish and finish. Unwelcome bitter/sour aftertaste. Watery palette. Iím not crazy about this, as much as I want to support Cameronís in their new beers.

Smells quite vinegary. May be the end of the barrel. Checked with the bar staff but they said that's the way it tastes lovely dark colour. Smells and tastes like a mouldy beer cellar.
