COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
Lancaster Black is a classic, traditional stout reminiscent of the beer typically found in Lancashire during the 18th and 19th century. Black combines a complex taste with a rich and full body. At 4.6%, Black may be dark in appearance but is surprisingly crisp with a full bouquet of crisp fruits, spices and floral aromas. Brewed using a combination of Cascade and Challenger hops combined with Chocolate and Maris Otter malt, Black is a stout for the true connoisseur."

hotstuff (4269) - Indiana, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Backlog rating on 12-29-2012 (Bottle) The appearance is a small tan head with a short retention, semi-transparent reddish brown body, fast rising, fizzy carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing adorns my glass. The aroma is roasted malt, coffee, sweet, and a suggestion of spice. The flavor is sweet, roasted malt and coffee. The mouthfeel is thin and moderate carbonation. This beer is light-medium bodied. This beer for the style is watery and thin bodied. It is easy to drink and does not possess a lot of character.

tombyars (1411) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 29, 2014
Tasted this stout in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) on 28th March 2014. Cask, handpump dispense. Ruby black in colour with a thin creamy pale buff head. Short aroma of roast malt but little else. Thin oily mouthfeel and superb lacing throughout. Dark malts give maltloaf base with roast grain notes to the fore. Slightly sweet but dry liquorice flavour present. Not getting the fruit though! Very little in the way of hop resins come through in the brief aftertaste. Finish is smooth and malty with notes of mild coffee and sweet black treacle present. A decent old style Stout and well recommended.
