COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottle Conditioned; Regular.
A dark premium beer with an unusual medley of flavours. It is rich and malty with a roasted stout-like edge, yet also light and dry with spiciness and fruit, from the blend of hops: Exuberant American Cascade restrained by traditional English Fuggles with a touch of Bramling Cross.

jamesie1857 (1694) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2015
500ml Bottle from Hawkshead Beer Hall - Near black body, bit of a reddy brown tint, thin white head. Nose is roasted malt, smoky wood cinders and freshly ground coffee. Taste has a bitter-sweet quality to it, a bit of dried fruits, toast, followed by a roasty-bitter aftertaste. A little thin, but I’ll forgive it. Enjoyable stout.

Towey1989 (723) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2015
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A deep brown colour with a medium tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, spicy blackberry, some liquorice, slight fruitcake and subtle smoke. Taste of spicy blackberry, some roasted malts, raisin, slight chocolate, subtle liquorice and a little tartness. Medium bodied and a smooth texture. A spicy, fruity finish with subtle roastiness. More of a porter than a stout but interesting flavours. Good.

Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - FEB 22, 2015
500 ml bottle from Les Vignerons. Very dark red/copper, quite clear, with a big, fluffy, forever lasting light beige head. Extremely interesting nose: quite sweet and roasted initially, clean and inviting notes of milk chocolate, vanilla and toffe, but then a rich fruity and hoppy presence (esp. candied oranges) become more and more evident. The first sip almost scream black IPA, despite the aroma the sweetness is almost non existent, it’s not too bitter and the two different components (roasted malts/hint of coffee and hoppy/resinous) works decently well togheter. Very smooth mouthfeel, rather high drinkability. Fruity and roasted aftertaste. Soft carbonation, medium body, slightly creamy texture. Unusual indeed, but in a good and interesting way.
