Cask: Occasional. Also available bottle conditioned.
A rich and robust stout. The addition of black treacle gives intense depth and roasted malts impart a coffee flavour. Generous amounts of hops add a dry citrus finish to this complex black ale.

Bottle. Black beer with red tints. Medium head. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is mild chocolate, coffee and roasted malts with a touch of earth. No treacle that I could detect. Very nice stout from back home.

I enjoyed this stout ... but in all honesty it seemed a bit more like a porter to me. Poured from the bottle dark brown ... but with some light coming through. Thin fizzy head. Lots of fizz and light on the palate. Definitely roasted malts in the nose. Roasted malts on the tongue, some molasses and a bit of bitterness. Very tasty.

dogbomb (1009) - ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2012
Cask tried. Rating bottle. Dark brown ale with red hints. Thick tan head which lasts and lasts. Nose is really nice quality treacle toffee, with a little charcoal in there. Taste is rich coffee, mixed with treacle - a really rich bitterness throughout the ale, but a nice finish which means you go back for more more more. Class.
