3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned - handpump - Wig and Pen, Northampton. A very attractive beer being black with a lovely frothy beige coloured head. The aroma is thin with some slight fruit and a little acidity. The taste is creamy with some light roast. Smooth and pretty tasty. Sweeter than expected with no really fishy notes.

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2008 Overly chilled half at The Bull, and an unexpected rate. Pitch with lots of beige lacing. Nose sweet dusty choc, roasted malt, liquorice. Dominant notes of cocoa and liquorice. Bit of plastic. Needs more roastiness to achieve true stouthood. Creamy nitro mouthfeel. Bit watery and mild-like in the finish. Certainly one of Marston’s more characterful efforts.
