4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the Pembury Tavern, November 2006. Almost black in colour. Lots of roast malt and creamy chocolate in the aroma. More of the same on the palate, with a developing burnt and hoppy bitterness. Some fruity notes too and a hint of flowery violets. Also sweetish coffee, although the overall impression is not sweet at all due to the balance produced by the bitterness. Full mouthfeel although drinks more easily than 7.5% ABV would suggest (actually I noted this down as 7.6% but no matter). An all round excellent brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Manchester Winterfest. Rich, black stout with mocha malt, iodine, fruit, liquorice and a hint of rum. This is fine but I’m not as blown away as I expected to be and on the night, the St Petersburg nicked it on points.

Bottle at chris_o’s teabagging is my job mate tasting, many thanks go out to doppleganger for having the balls to open a 6 month old cask to bottle swing top bottle full of goodness. The tartness is awsome, its not ruined, like its just good tart berry rich awsomeness, however roasty character stops it from being high five goodness. Very drinkable and i think i did like 150ml of the 500mls whuich is impressive at such a tasting.
