Tap at the brewpub. Black with well-retaining creamy head. Very roasty, ashy character with hints of smokiness and even chocolate. Soft and light on the palate with ashy dry finish. Textbook, with what seems to be a tiny hint of hops? Nice.

Keg at Stillwell, Halifax. It pours black with a long-lasting creamy tan head. The nose is soft, ash, sweet roast, coffee, cocoa, creamy, earth, dried fruits and liquorice. The taste is bitter, earthy, charred wood, burnt malt, light pepper, treacle, ash, cocoa, liquorice and coffee grounds with a dryish finish. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Has decent body, but not much flavour to carry it. Fine.

This is amazing. The body is light but the flavour just amazing, like a kick in the butt! Nice long smokey finish.

Draft – This stout seems to change keg by keg even if only slightly, usually with a fruity finish from time to time. Not the most interesting beer I've ever had, but not bad at all.
