3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Half at NWAF 2013, (4.3 % abv according to the festival program, where it was called a new traditional stout), cask by handpump. Near black coloured body. Naked surface, spotty lacing to the glassware. Spiced malty nose. Dark malty-fruity taste revealing hints of coffee, liquorice and a chili touch beneath that lingers for quite a while. Easy to drink. Enjoying (Manchester, 23.01.2013).

Cask. Pours dark with ruby tints in the light. Aroma is caramel and cough drops. Tastes more s yr ongly if smoked roasted malts and yes a hint of pepper at the end. Given the weight on the palate if someone had called it porter rather than stout I wouldn’t have noticed.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at The Earl Grey Inn, Leek. A deep brown colour with a thin off white head. Aroma of blackjacks, smoke, some roasted malts, slight chilli, subtle chocolate, blackberry and maybe herbal hops. Taste of smoke, roasted malts, some blackberry, spicy chilli, slight coffee, soft aniseed and herbal hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, spicy bitterness in the finish. Quite hard to describe this one, haven’t had a stout like it. Dry, spicy, herbal and slightly fruity, subtle chilli kick. Decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Belvedere Arms, Liverpool. Very dark brown, with a decent tan head. Bouquet of chocolate, burnt toast and caramel biscuit spread. Tastes sweet for a stout, but certainly not without coffee bean bitter edges. Smooth, silky and full palette. A solid cask stout. Although it lacks that extra ’oomph’ to be truly great, it is pretty damn close.
