Light sweet flavorbwith continuing milky chocolate, earthy bitterness, some burnt leaves, mellow ash, dried berries. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Decent balance to finish, further cocoa, subtle earthy bitterness, burnt wood. Fine.

Cask, gravity dispensed, at the Spring Festival at the Rose & Crown, Sandhurst. Darkest mahogany in colour with a ring of white head; chocolate malt aroma; and a sweet chocolate malt taste with some chewy toffee in the background; then a dry finish with some lingering coffee grounds.

WVHouseofBeer (943) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Pours black with a massive frothy brown head (almost too much head in fact.....) that leaves a lot of lacing. Decent aromas and flavors of light peat, roasted nuts, molasses and chocolate. Body is too thin. Finishes slightly bitter. Pretty good stout.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2014
Cask at Cambridge Blue, Cambridge on 22 November 2013. Poured black with a small, rocky tan head. Mild aroma with some dark fruit and burnt malt. Mouth feel was a bit disappointingly watery. Sweet flavours initially; apple pie, caramel and molasses. Finish balanced it with some roasted malt, cereal and burnt sugar.

MartinT (8661) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
This soft and dry Stout matches light mokaccino to hints of berries and mint for an easy drinking experience.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the ruby-hued darkness.
-Mild molasses and roast take control of the finish.
-Mouthfeel is svelte, which makes this Stout very easy on the palate.
-The berry character is jam-like.

jackl (5919) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Cask @ CBC Islington. Split with Scopey from Ratebeer. The pour’s deep brown with no head whatsoever. The nose is sweet roasted nuts, some chocolate cake, a bit of vinous red grape and berry. The taste is much the same. Decent sweet chocolate syrup profile. Nice chewy malt sweetness. Earthy nut. Playful fruit finish. Smooth, drinkable stuff. Very approachable, simple. Pretty solid.
