3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[cask at SRAF’11] Black beer with a beige head that reduces pretty quickly. Lovely roasty, smoky aromas of burnt malt and damp straw (in a good way). The mouthfeel is also impressive, very smooth and really well-balanced. Long bitter roast finish with again that slight edge of smoke. Excellent stuff

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at 2011 Deeside Beer Festival. It pours jet black with a thin foamy tan head and soft carbonation. The nose is smokey bacon, bonfire, dark chocolate, sesame seed and perhaps a little soy sauce. The taste is smoke, charcoal, sesame seed, soy sauce, liquorice, bitter chocolate and a little caramel, with a surprisingly bitter finish. Good quality stout but, which is perhaps a bit too thin to handle the bitterness.
