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 conditioned at St. Aldates Tavern, Oxford. Black with cream head. There is a full, roast, creamy body to this, some liquorice, some charcoal then hints of spicy hop in the close. A really pleasant and decent stout.

Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Very black with a thick creamy head and very dry in the palate that makes its stout character relatively mild.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at NWAF 2012. Very dark with a reddish hue and an off-white head. Aroma of blackcurrants and malt with some roasty notes, hints of coffee and spices. A bit sweet and fruity with a quite dry and bitter finish. A bit strange, but quite pleasant. (2013-01-25)
