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.

Theydon_Bois (8381) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2014
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. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, drying close. 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.
