Cask: Occasional - introduced November 2011.
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.

mR_fr0g (3938) - 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.

AWS9 (504) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2014
Beautiful pour with the classic rising bubbles. Simple coffee and malt notes in the nose. Quite smooth, raspy, malty chocolate. The nitrogren keeps some bubbliness - not quite an explosion of flavour, but solid.

BroSpud (1740) - , Massachusetts, USA - AUG 27, 2014
On tap at British Beer Company. Poured a jet black with very little head into a pint glass. Sweet malt flavors, somewhat thin palate yet syrupy at the same time. Made me want a real stout...

Cask draft at Khyber Pass. Clear black pour thar started with a voluminous beige head. Runny lace. Charred toast. Some light coffee, chocolate and liquorice, but mostly just nondescript burnt malts. Creamy body. Feels good but not very complicated.

crazy_cat_lady (142) - - APR 12, 2014
April 11, 2014. On tap at Town Crier. Black with off-white head. Faint roasted malt aroma. Roasted coffee, hint of chocolate. Thinner than expected. Not a great beer. Expected better from Fullerís, rather disappointed at how plain is beer is.
