Cask at The Hanging Bat, Edinburgh on 17 May. Poured black, with a dense beige head and excellent lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, roasted malt and cocoa. Initial flavours were a little on the sweet side; chocolate and dates, mixed with some coffee. Mouth feel was medium. Finish was treacle, bread and molasses.

gegwilson (952) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2013
Cask from the Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Very dark with just a slight red tinge when held up to the light. Nice creamy lasting head. Very smooth taste with coffee and chocolate. Enjoyable and easy drinking, but lacks depth for me.

AshtonMcCobb (2356) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 13, 2013
On keg at The Hanging Bat. Appearance - opaque black with big crema head. Aroma - roasty and chocolatey. But too cold really to get much more than that. Taste - chocolate,then liquorice, maybe a bit of smoke. Palate - medium bodied with decent texture and a relatively well balanced dry finish. Overall - somewhere between a regular stout style and a dry stout style, I think. Happy to drink it but would like to try it again at room temperature.

allmyvinyl (2892) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 13, 2013
Keg at The Hanging Bat. Pours black with a good tan head. Quite light aromas, but roasted coffee and dark chocolate are there. Taste follows through, then a very dry finish. Good quaffing stout.

McNeillR (1093) - SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Dense black with dessert beige Big lasting head. Guinness microlooked. Sadly steely keg soft clinical roast nosed too. Soft cooling mouthfeel, not hammering but cheap pepper mouthfeel on finish. Bready mocha vibe on linger. Actually could drink a lot, if I’d a reason to drink nothing else

Keg, Hanging Bat
