Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A deep brown to black colour with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, milk chocolate, some hazelnut, slight coffee and a little ash. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate, light smoke, a little coffee, caramel, some liquorice, slight hazelnut and subtle spiciness. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, chocolate, roasted bitterness in the finish. Quite a nice stout, lovely chocolate, liquorice and roasted malt flavours, shame it’s a little thin.
