Cask at NERAX. Deep chocolate black pour with tan bubbles. Aroma is grassy, cocoa and roast. Bit of coffee too. Taste is initial malty chocolate and hay etc, followed by a complex roast and hop finish. Smooth and full bodied. Not as sublime as the name suggests, but a very nice and complex stout.

Cask at CBC Brixton. Pours a dark amber brown with an off white head. Aroma is a bit sweaty, a little cheese and a hint of coffee. Medium body, mild carbonation. Lots of licorice, also treacle, rum, dark fruit, coca cola, a little woody, fairly mild bitterness. Nice enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
