500ml Bottle from Coppers, Gosforth, £3.19/pint.
Pours near black with a very thin, tan head. The nose has sweet grainy notes and light smoke. The flavour takes the smokiness up a notch, like well-fried bacon mixed with nut. The flavour complexity continues into a yeasty finish with tart, cherry bitterness presenting itself increasingly as the beer goes down, as well as creamy chocolate notes. A good, complex stout.

Nothing remarkable about this stout, but at the same time, not unpleasant either. Very nice dark colour, good aroma. Very drinkable for a stout.

September 16, 2014 - at The Gunmakers; handpull. Ruby-black with a decent creamy/foamy tan head (4-). Mild aroma - mild roast with light tart fruit - meh. Love that taste - roast, plum and prune, some floral bitterness - airy, light, quick-finishing - very nice mild; sorry, stout.
