A decent enough beer though magic rock have better beers in there portfolio. I just find the beer slightly lacks in depth, and the finish is on the short side.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Sheffield Tap. Darkest reddy brown. Beige, thin but tight, creamy head. Aroma is bonfire toffee. Roasted coffee beans too. Some stewed fruit also. Taste is sticky sweet initially, quickly giving way to a dry, then bitter finish. The alcohol makes itself known, but doesn’t distract. A stout that warrants a session (albeit a short, slightly pissed one!).
