A rich full flavoured, strong stout with a roast coffee aroma. The dominant roast character is balanced by a warming sweetness and a raisiny, fruit-cake taste which lingers on into the long aftertaste, making this a very satisfying drink.

500ml bottle from Booths in Windermere - Opaque black with a slight tan head and no carbonation. Aroma of roasted malt, some toffee and a hint of creaminess. Surprisingly light mouth feel, with sweet flavours of dark fruit, chocolate and caramel, finishing off pleasantly dry with some warming alcohol.Went down a treat this one, nice surprise.

Bottle BBE: Mar 16. Lightly chilled. Pours a deep mahogany with a medium-small creamy tan head. High intensity roasted character; coffee, earthy, lightly nutty. Medium sweetness and a light bitterness. Full-bodied and creamy, carbonation is surprisingly high, but the finish is quite astringent. Overall a stout with great character.

On cask at Moo Bar, Penrith. Pours black brown with tan head. Boozy roast stout, decent but you wouldnt want too much!

Gravity pour at Wandsworth Common bf. Pours a dark reddy brown with a light tan head. Aroma has a good amount of dark fruit, a little booze, pears... Light body, mild carbonation, thin. Pity, the aroma was good but it all feels so dumbed down on tasting. Watery, with dark fruits etc... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask gravity at the Wandsworth beer fest preview night 26/03/14. Dark caramel colour with a greyish tan head. . aroma is chocolate raisin, slightly sweet wort. Flavour is nice chocolate raisin cake and low roast in the finish. Nicely put together. Could pass for a mild. Medium sweet palate. Slight grain tanin. Nice malt forward beer.

gegwilson (2379) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle in the George and Dragon, Dent. Deep ruby with a brief tan head. Quite sweet and fruity aroma with a bit of coffee. Sweet at first with notes of treacle and coffee. A touch too carbonated. A good bitter finish and pretty nice. More an old ale than a stout for my money.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2013
Cask at the Le Gothiques Halloween Beer Festival 2013. Poured a dark ruby colour with a rocky beige head. Aroma was malty with dark fruit and acidic note. Nutty flavour again with slightly sharp tones and some caramel. Palate was more rounded with brown sugar, coffee and orange peal. Not sure if this was in top condition...

Gravity cask at the Wandsworth Common Halloween Beer Festival - Le Gothique, London. Pours clear, red-brown with a bubbly tan head. The aroma holds mostly tangy dark fruits, some plum especially. Light sweet flavor with berries, dried fruits, more plum. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Light sweetness in the finish with further tangy dark fruits, faint earthy bitterness, background cocoa. Meh.
