3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Cask, Pimlico, 07/03/14.
Dark chestnut brown with a moderate tan covering that clears to the edge.
Nose is treacle toffee, biscuit malt, liqourice, syrup.
Taste comprises light woody tones, cocoa dusting, light roast, dark toffee, hint of papyrus.

Solid enough crossover stylee, had it down as an ESB as I started to rate it but when I saw it was a stout on RB I could begin to appreciate some stoutlike qualities.
