Craft. Clear dark red beer, little pale tan head. Palate is smooth and slightly dry. Very mild roast in the otherwise mellow dark malt. Trace of smoke and lactose. Nice fruit - a little tart, not sure I would have identified Cranberry without already being in the know. Finishes dry with the mild roast and smoke carrying over in to the aftertaste and joined by subtle banana ester. Hangs together well.

Cask at CBC Clerkenwell, London. Pours clear, dark gold with a fine, beige cream head. Aroma holds some modest lactic sugars, modest roast, some leather, dirt and wet wood. Medium sweet flavor with mellow chocolate, dirt, background dark fruits, mild earthy bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes with a bit more bitterness, plenty of dirt, earth and burnt leaves, along with toasty malts, milk chocolate and fruit skins. Quite a nice sweet stout.
