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.

2nd December 2008. Very dark brown beer - light just passes through. Doesn’t look or feel like a stout! A little dark malt but fruity and tangy rather than roasty or chocolatey! Not bad but it ain’t 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.

rauchbier (3634) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2009
Bottlle, from Rhythm & Booze in Barton. Deep red brown, good lasting creamy beige head and gentle condition. Sweet toffee and roast malt in the nose with some background herbal hoppiness. Quite dry and biscuity in the mouth with hints of roast and burnt toffee but little apparent sweetness, more lingering dry burnt bitterness in the finish with some vague liquorice notes

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 26, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2008 Bottle (in NZ), pours a ruby-tinted black with a creamy beige head. Roasted malt on the nose, coffee, and a sweetness akin to some whiskeys. Overly sweet roasted malt on the palate, but becomes more dry and bitter in the swallow. Tobacco and aniseed in the finish. Re-rated - lighter this time, with more coffee flavour. Very easy to drink.

Bottle conditioned, 500ml from Booths of Longton, Lancs. Dark brown towards black with tan head. Sweetness, treacley aroma with a treacle pudding type character in the body. Toffee, caramel mixed with darker roasted coffee notes. Full ond tarry in the finish, a very decent stout.

greig (253) - Hamilton, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 4, 2008
A tasty beer from Ossett. Nice caramel nose, and delicious roasty flavour without being astringent or overly bitter. One of the better stouts I’ve had and I’m not a big fan of the style. Marked down overall only for hints of petroleum (yes really) in the nose and on the palate. Otherwise, a great beer from my favourite English county!
