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.

harrisoni (14020) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2008 RBESG08 grand tasting. Yes, it’s a bit gingery. Not a great stout. A bit warm by the time I got to it. Gingery/spicy and not great. 2.5/5 Re-rate Cask gravity at Pigs Ear 2008. Black colour with no real head. OK thickish stout. Its quite tasty, good Ossett beer, nice oilyness. Good depth of flavour, nice grain.

Dark brown. Rubbery, sweet malt taste with some ashiness. Luxurious sweet taste, a little sourness, and a little bitterness That lingers. Immensely drinkable. Even chuggable in summer..

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2008
A Sim rate (Winter Beer Fest): Aroma of caramel, ginger, bit of apple, serious maple syrup and of course, treacle. I could smell this all day! Nice dark appearance that’s not quite opaque. Glorious flavour. Same notes as the aroma, but with extra nuts. Quite a bitter finish. Very very enjoyable.
