UPDATED: SEP 16, 2015 Cask at the Webb Ellis JDW, near-black with a fine tan head and a burnt caramel and pine nose, rich, dry-bitter and dark, with grapefruit, burnt treacle, liquorice and a hint of gravy. Almost a black IPA, but much thicker and syrupy-dry. Lovely. Re-rate at the Crosse Keys, gorgeous roasty winey burnt-bitter stuff.

Black beer with a thick, bubbly brownish head. Smells mostly of malt but I think there’s a hint of something fruity, almost citrus, under that too. That’s there in the flavour too but it’s mostly toasted malt and a dry, hoppy aftertaste. Unusual but very nice.

On cask at Hop Inn, Newcastle-under-Lyme. Pours black brown with bubbly tan head. Strange stout, very dry and smoky. Decent but I prefer a more creamy mouth feel to my stouts.
