Cask conditioned at Harbury Beer Fest ’07. Black with ruby hints, tan head. Thank goodness that this is back, its a big rich smooth, dark malts and bough breakingly fruity. The finish is a little sweet with alcohol present. Good stuff.

(Cask) Jet black; slim greige head. Faint dark malts nose, some chocolate. Sweet-and-milk stout flavours, at the same time as roasty bitterness. medium-bodied, texture is thinner than the mouthfeel, but still OK. Nice porter. Was a headcracker to find out who brewed it. Thanks to Jeremy Gray.
