Cask at the Microbar Beer Festival, Manchester, 2013. Dark brown pour with a tan head. Meaty old aroma. A bit of coffee and dark chocolate in there too. Flavours of coffee, chocolate and a smidgen of licorice. Quite nice.

Cask at Port Street Beer House, Manchester. Nice glass of stout, smooth, with a tan head. Chocolate, maybe liquorice, not as bitter as I expected. Good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned at Fleetwood Beer Fest ’13. Black with tan head. Oddly quite fruity for a stout, prunes came to mind with a hint of tartness. Bitterness from the roasted malts does come through later, a touch thinner than expected. Still an interesting beer. Reasonable.
