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!

cgarvieuk (21868) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 5, 2007
Bottle at home ... deep red brown ... nice faom head ...lots of roast fruity malts and no doubt of the treacle, which adds a lovely extra dimension to the nose .... Mouth feel is a bit thiner than expected ... sweet herby tones with some caramel tones ... little bitterness ... little drying little blackcurent, but its the overwhelming herby medicinal tones that unbalance this beer. THe lovely aroma pushes this beer to a pip or two higher than i think it deserves. But actually on drinking rest of bottle it the herbyness mellows a bit and in fact uprate from 3.0 ->3.3

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.
