Clear deep amber beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light, semi dry and minerally crisp. Very mild and thin dark malts. Super mild coffee and tang. Modest dark fruits before a light crisp finish. Mild malty caramel linger. Very lightweight.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned at The Railway Shed Brewhouse, Ludlow, Shrops. Dark chestnut with off white head. There is quite a nutty start to this, dark roasted malty flavours with a sweetish side to it and fruity aside. Plummy, slightly jammy. Not really a stout for me I would say.
