Note: This is the unpasteurised, cask conditioned version, typical served by hamdpump & mainly available in the UK. The keg version is pasteurised and has a separate listing. If you had this on draught outside the UK it was probably the keg version.

Brewed with a combination of five different malts, some heavily roasted for a near jet black appearance, Black Cab Stout is 4.2% abv and beneath its dark exterior features luxurious red berry notes, toasty aromas on the nose and culminates in a dry, bitter finish.

Cask at Parcel Yard, Kings X. Black with a very short lived head. Way too thin IMHO, justed tasted like flat thin chocolatey water. May of been towards the end of the barrel?

Had on tap at Union Tavern. Pours dark to blackish brown with a light brown head. Smell is sweet almost like brown sugar. Taste is heavily toasted malt and molasses. Not as good as the bottled version.

Pint at Heathrow. Looks exactly how you’d want a stout to look, down to the thick creamy head. Not much aroma and the flavour is disappointingly standard. Malt, a bit of chocolate and fruit. Not that rich but it’s smooth and very drinkable. Don’t think it needs serving as cold as I had it.

Aroma is roasted and chocolate, kind of a let down as far as flavor, malts are strong almost too creamy needs a bit of a bite for a complex feel

Tognetta (532) - Campinas, BRAZIL - MAR 9, 2015
Achocolatada, retrogosto bem balanceado. Carbonaçao um pouco acima da media para o estilo. Aftertaste duradouro.

Cask at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö, Norra Vallgatan
Black color with fluffy head. Mild aroma, strange, stale day old draught beer, light roastiness, firewood, old leather. Smooth mouthfeel, lowly carbonated, with light roasted malt flavor, low bitterness, some ashes and not much else going on.

mR_fr0g (7237) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2014
Cask at the rosendale. Aroma is nice soft roast and toasted coconut with a little red currant fruit. Creamy black pour with a steadfast creamy tan head. Flavour is nutty roast, little jammy fruit, little bit of cinnamon or something. Lingering soft roast. Medium full rounded palate, slightly creamy nitro. Tasty stout.

Septic (2) - Sterling, Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2014 does not count
Very dark yet refreshing. A good choice for after a hard days work. Warms the soul as well as the body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
