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.

Perpignan73 (30) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2016
500ml bottle, chilled, poured into a pint glass at home; Appears black, but clear dark red on inspection; tan head; aroma of malt, bread, spice, raisin and possibly a hint of rubber and/or tobacco; rich sweet, malty taste, raisin, chocolate reminiscent of fruit cake or fruit & nut; balanced, smooth, long finish which belies its relatively high abv. Left a lingering taste around mouth. A top class stout.

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.

thmsboyd (193) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUN 9, 2015
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.
