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.

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.

imdownthepub (11378) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2008
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!

Bottle at RBESG08 Grand Tasting. Alround rating: My notes are quite minimal here and imply a stout with a treackle notes, suprise suprise.

harrisoni (15043) - 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.
