Classic, slightly dry stout taste. Softly woody, quite lip smacking, decent profile and enjoyment.

White Lion. Black, so very black. Has all the flavours and aromas I like in a stout - chocolate, liquorice, vanilla, and a nice burnt roasted bitterness. On to a winner? Almost. I like my stouts to be full and thick, whereas this is light and thin. Still, itís top notch - maybe a summer stout?

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
This lean and fruity Stout evokes clear blackberry jam allusions within the chocolate and roasted malts.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam skirts the darkness.
-The mouthfeel is lean but not very dry.
-This was nicely drinkable and quite fruity, like all of their beers Iíve had so far.
-Mild green hop bitterness joins the fruitiness in the finish.
-This is a good, juicy Stout, but nothing more.

On cask at The Devonshire Arms, Cambridge.

Scopey (5511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2013
Cask at Pembury Tavern. It pours darkest brown with a small beige head. The nose is roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, sweet liquorice, charcoal, condensed milk and Scottish Tablet. The taste is smooth, roasted malt, cocoa, coffee grinds, earth, dark caramel, custard and toast with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Very smooth and drinkable stout.

JorgeLee (1067) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2013
Cask in the Pembury Tavern E8. Getting towards the end of an evening so slightly dulled senses...but this was nice and far better than the lousy pint I had preceding it! Deep black stout, bit of oaty smoothness, plenty of roasty bitter flavours, malt and cocoa. Good solid stout.

AWS9 (462) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2012
Cask. Beautiful dark pour with mocha head. Heavy nutty, earthy aroma. Dark, roasty malt with a smooth finish. Pretty standard stout, and that works just fine.
