Bottle. Deep brown pour with little to no head. Subtle notes of coffee with dark maltiness. Well balanced. More of a Porter then a Stout. Very enjoyable.

From cask at the Roundhouse in Plymouth. Dry and earthy. Looks a little light in colour for a stout. Very light chocolate aroma. Quite drinkable, but lacking any distinctiveness.

Cask at GBBF 2012. Poured a very dark brown, with a halo of beige head. Aroma of tobacco, weak coffee and dark malt. Roasted malt flavours, with some dark chocolate and berries. Moderate mouthfeel. Finish was earthy grain, liquorice and molasses.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
From The Devon Horde. 500ml. Good as headless ruby- strangely transparent for a stout with low to no condition. Aroma of sweet vegetable crisps, red berries, chocolate, rust and redcurrant. Good flavour despite the flatness with soggy malted milk biscuit spread with Nutella malt notes and an abundance of rust and soapy berry, pomegranate-like fruit. Not stout, not conditioned but a decent beer nonetheless.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle conditioned 500ml: BBD 1st May 14, poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 29th Nov 13.
Clear ruby red body and thin looking for a regular Stout: itís name should be Ruby Stout maybe. The head was thin to begin with and became a minute wisp and collar within seconds, thatís bad in my eyes, which is a real shame because the body colour is lovely.
Aroma wise it gave off milk chocolate esters: like a Cadburyís Creamy Egg. The taste wasnít too far away from that either. It was very Milk Stout, but with semi-skimmed milk, smooth but not uber-smooth: I really took to it.
Different and lovely in every way apart from the none-head, what a pity.

Like a dark IPA, gorgeous stout. No head and Holly. Sour and fruity. Very nice and would drink again.

Cask at GBBF 2012 - London. Pours clear brown with a fine, white cream head. Light toasty malt nose, some burnt leaves. Light to medium sweet flavor with toasty malt character, dirty-leafy bitterness. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Faint dryness to finish, moderate leafy and earthy bitterness, toasty malts. Basic but nice.

Goodness this stout has pineapple juice in it! The juice makes it light and very drinkable with an elderflower flavour - no hint of pineapple to taste. Stout style malts and vague coffee build up with every mouthful.
