COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Occasional;
English Aroma Hops, Fuggles and Goldings are added for their fruity, floral and spicy contribution to the taste with the majority of the bitterness coming from the roasted malts. The final result is a rich, dark and exceptionally creamy smooth stout.

Smells like coffee and chocolate. Very dark appearance. Thick black colour. Can't see through it at all. Fruity taste. Hardly any aftertaste. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2013
Quite a nice, if simple taste. Minimal aroma, smooth like tetleys. Quite sweet, Guinness like appearance. Won’t drink again.

Une base de stout assez ordinaire complémenté par un côté sec et légèrement salé. Rien de bien mémorable.

Deep brown, almost black pour with a browny creamy head. Malty and chocolatey on the nose. Really smooth creamy mouthfeel with some subtle caramels and coffee. Getting sweetness and salts. Not as much carbonation here as the bottled type, and a more solid body. Lovely nutty bitter finish.

Cask (@Strands Hotel, Nether Wasdale): Deep, deep amber coloured, firm brownish creamy head; roasted malt and milk chocolate in the nose, with a subtle fruitiness underneath; not very dry bitter flavour, pretty light bodied; short and slight bitter finish with delicate chocolatey aromas. Average Stout.....

gary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2009
Usual black pour with a small, creamy head which quickly dissapears. Nice fairly mild stout, lots of roasts and cereal flavours, moderate bitterness and a sweet, viscous finish. Enjoyable.
