3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thick black beer with red-ish head. Slightly oily palate and very heavy on the burnt flavours with a long bitter finish. Good beer but perhaps lacks subtlety.

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

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
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, it’s top notch - maybe a summer stout?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 I’ve 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.
