COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal.
A full bodied oatmeal stout brewed with a blend of maris otter, roast, crystal and chocolate malts with wheat and oatmeal. The flavours are enhanced by the addition of Galena and Bramling cross hops to produce a rich and creamy ale with a strong bitter finish with blackcurrant and coffee flavours.

500ml bottle - I quite like this one. Black with a healthy beige foam that laces all the way through. The aroma has roasted malts and blackberries and a bit of coffee lurking there. A strong rich malty taste with chocolate and burnt toast and more rich fruits. A good body and a long finish. Slick and tasty. A very decent brew.

Full bodied stout that makes it a great session ale, but not high or aroma or taste. Still worthy though.

Cask at the Craft. Clear but very dark red beer. Tidy little tan head. Light smooth palate. A touch of unsweet dark chocolate. Mild red berry fruits. Trace of coffee, smooth dry finish.

gunnar (5472) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2012
Bottle from myBrewerytap.com. Pours deep ruby with a huge frothy and creamy off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and liquorice. Taste is moderate roasted malts, good body for the low abv, lingering coffe and liquorice, a good one this.

A better than average English stout. Not overwhelming in any respect but balanced with a reserved chocolatey taste. A bit watery for my taste.

BeerCast_Rich (1891) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 4, 2012
[bottle at EBBC12] Black as a moorland night, decent cream-coloured head. Aroma of milk chocolate – and the taste is there too. Smooth and creamy, some coffee bitterness from the burnt malt edge. Really enjoyed it – there’s no secret to this beer, just a well-made, easy-drinking Yorkshire stout [18052012]

jackl (4698) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2012
Deep brown with a slight off white head. Light roasty nose. The taste is quite creamy. Loads of velvety creamed coffee flavor. Some light berries. Very dry finish. Light and easy to drink. Lacks a certain depth of flavor, but gets the job done. OK.

(Bottled), I don’t really like low boozed stouts , they tend to lack the complexity i need from stronger stout equivalents , this though had a very good palate and overall texture . Rich ,smooth and I can’t put the glass down . Some milk chocolate , coffee roast , berries covered in powder...
If this was more robust it would be stunning....
