COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2010
Cask at the Newshouse, Nottingham. A pleasantly sweet stout, perhaps a bit thin on the palate. I donít normally like Ossett beers, but this one isnít bad.

BeerCast_Rich (1841) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 20, 2010
[cask at Red Lion, York] Dark blackish brown pour, decent off-white head. Very thick and syrupy, aromas of dark treacle, molasses and brown sugar. Some malt aromas as well. Chewy on the palate, dark sweet malt with liquorice finish. Nice, but a half is about enough Ė good on a cold night though [28112010]

Cask. Aroma is fine liquorice, mild coffee and roast malt, deep brown, hint of red at the sides, pretty lace. Flavour is roast coffee and malt with a touch of cocoa.Light bodied, balanced, good bitterness, easy to sup, dry finish. Pretty good version.

madmitch76 (13360) - , Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2010
2nd December 2008. Very dark brown beer - light just passes through. Doesnít look or feel like a stout! A little dark malt but fruity and tangy rather than roasty or chocolatey! Not bad but it ainít a stout!

Bottled at RBESG 2009. A deep red beer with a tan head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted malt and caramel, and so is the flavor.
