Aye, ratebeer is sayint this is stout. When I poured this to glass I had look of color and though this could be one due the blackness which is quite not pitch black but close. Definition ’a bit more dark than typical cola drink’ is close. There is no clear smell. Taste is malty, and somewhat smoky. Afterwards waterness takes over. Drinkable, nothing special. I have hunch maker did not want to offend anyone, so none got to be pleased either.

weaselkenievil (1207) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2014
Bottle at home. First beer from this brewer for me. Dark brown with a thin fading to nothing pale grey head. Aroma of treacle toffee, wood, smoke, coffee. Bit thin and drank like a mild!

Meanwhile, differences in quality between Sam Smith and Ridgeway just don’t seem to register with beer geeks, who don’t understand English beer in the first place, and won’t generate any excitement for it that might get noticed in the mainstream. (I wonder how much whiskey-infused stuff the geeks are buying now, by the way.)

16.9 oz bottle. Near black appearance with an average sized beige head. Aroma is of licorice, roasted malts, slightly burnt toast, toffee, and hazelnut. Taste is of roasted malts, licorice, cocoa, tree bark, soil, and coffee.

solidfunk (3022) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 4, 2014
The best I’ve had of the lot of these Ridgeway beers. Dark brown pour with no head or lacing on cask. Roast malt and nice thick consistency. Creamy texture. Dry bitter leave. Cask at Churchkey.

BeerViking (2096) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2014
More a black English Pale Ale than a Stout, roasty nose with earthy hops, burnt-bitter with burnt caramel notes plus spicy red fruit hints.

beeebon (142) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2014
Not a bad stout. Pours black with minimal tan soapy head. Smell is slight roasted malt and pear. Taste is pretty mild with the roasted malt coming through with a bit of coffee and slight fruit. I guess I was expecting a massive flavour profile but I found it subdued. Despite that it is an enjoyable beer!
