Cask: Seasonal - February to April.
A sweet stout (formally known as a Milk Stout) at 4.2% ABV, that is Dark and inviting, with a rich and velvety feel in the mouth. The overall bitterness is moderate allowing the full flavours of the Roast, Chocolate and Crystal malts to shine through. Evolving distinct Coffee and Chocolate notes complemented by a balanced sweetness. A perfect pint to enjoy whist watching the spring sporting calendar, dark, wholesome, surprising and punching above it weight. (Contains Lactose)

berkshirejohn (5988) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2012
50cl bottle from the Home Brew Shop, Aldershot. Pours pitch black with a tight tan head; rich, sweet, chocolate aroma; smooth and soft in the mouth, sweet and fruity to start then with a burst of sharply bitter hops before a sweet, lactic, milk chocolate finish with underlying nutty roasted malts and an echo of the hops. Rather good, but too sweet for my taste.
