From bottle. Pours black with big brown head. Slightly fruity sherbet aroma, some chocolate. Taste is quite roastly, little chocolate and coffee, some fruitiness. Fizzy with a slightly bitter finish. Not bad, might be better out a cask

Moderate sweetness, medium roasted bitterness. Medium body, slick texture, a bit too carbonated. Finish is dry, lasting roasted bitterness.

Gurthnar (5003) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 9, 2016
Bottle at Bolime tasting 3/2016. Unfortunately this soured and nothing is left of the deScriptors in commercial deScription. Not entirely bad, but not great either - just another unintentional sour.

Mjp12 (1397) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2016
A perfectly decent session style stout, with good roast flavours, and a clean finish

jamestulloch (3430) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 10, 2015
Bottle. Brown body with a thin beige head. Light lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, plum and dumpling. Flavour of peppercorns, chocolate limes, cherry, green pepper and Blackjacks. Thin body with a creamy texture. Soft fizz. A cracking beer - complex beyond its ABV. Hardknott are an incredibly underrated brewery.

gegwilson (3207) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2015
Bottle from Open All Hours in Keswick. Pours deep mahogany with a good frothy cream head. Light cocoa aroma. The taste is moderately spicy at first before bitter dark chocolate and black fruits. Some liquorice too. The body is pretty light with quite high carbonation. OK.

BlazerT (500) - POLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Bottle. Sensoric. Deep black with light brown, densed, medium to big head. Nice black fruits aroma - just like cherries in chocolate. Taste is fruity, slightly sour with dark chocolate accents. If you like dark fruita and chocolate go for it.
