3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask conditioned - handpump - Derby Winterfest 07. A black coloured beer with a beige thin head. The aroma has loads of roasty coffee notes. The taste is more of the same: very roasty and absolutley full of coffee. I donít like coffee but this really works. Very very tasty and moreish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask, Derby Winter Fest 06. Black and purple with a beige head. Aromas are earthy, sweet roast coffee. Coffee rules here and its good coffee. Flavours are roast coffee malts that are somehow both bitter and refreshing. Sweet and malty then slips into more bitterness towards the finish. Very good indeed.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge coffee aroma. No Head. Black. Sweet start with coffee completely dominating the mid. Finish is bitter, burnt and dry. Oily meal feel. Nice stuff.

This must have coffee added to the brew. Massive coffee essence burst in the aroma. Oily and viscous texture. Bittersweet flavour, with a touch of chocolate and burnt malt, but its all about the coffee really. Rather similar to Dark Starís Espresso Stout. Some people find these in yer face, coffee dominated stouts to be a bit brash, but I like them. Cask (gravity dispense), St Albans Beer Festival.
