Theydon_Bois (7935) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2013
Bottle, from the Local Carlise, on the train from Inverness to Hereford 21/10/13. Mid black with a good sized frothy light tan head. Nose is dark fruits, soapy notes, toffee, liqourice. Taste comprises light roast, dark toffee, hint of minerals, earthy, light soapy notes. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, fruity tang in the closure. Average stout - the old bar of soap was seemingly dunked in it a little too vociferously !

JorgeLee (1138) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2012
Cask at GBBF 2012. Note abv on GBBF website and brewery website don’t tally. Very dark black with brown in depths. From aroma on this is a very creamy malty stout, silky on the palate, smooth malt but low levels of bitterness. Very nice liquid to drink but can’t help but feel it would benefit from a bit more taste to it.
