Cask in North Bar, Leeds. Pours a pitch black, small head. Aroma is great - coffee, chocolate, roasted.malts, oatmeal sweetness. Taste is fairly bitter and dry - coffee, minerals, some bramble, some roasted malts. Thinner body than I’d like, but dry and almost chalky in the finish. Good.

Keg at Brewdog Clerkenwell, as ’Hawkshead Dry Stone Stout’, 4.5%. Black with a small foamy brown head. Aroma is molasses, sweet malt, light smoke. Body is light, fizzy, a bit foamy. Taste is thin malt, some roast washed out by carbonation, tonic water, light floral notes, some sugar, smoke. Death by keg, but it’s still OK.
