On draught at beer festival. Luxurious stout, with a great chocolate finish, would have liked it a little cooler. Would like to try a bottle.

Bottle from Booths. Very dark, no head. Has lots of chocolate malt in the nose and a light smattering in its taste, all in a fine body.

The real cocoa shines through, and only a strong dark beer like a stout could take it. It works well and I’d have another!

Bottle from Booth’s in Ripon. Pours very deep ruby, almost black with tan head. Bitter dark chocolate aroma and flavour with a dry burnt toast finish. A nice well balanced chocolate stout that is quite light and easy to drink.

Cask conditioned at York Beer Festival ’13. Black with cream head. Quite a chocolate note to this beer, bitter and dark, some huskiness, some baked grain notes. Lasting on the palate, pretty reasonable.

Pours a dark chocolate brown with soem ruby hints in the brightest light. Fizzy head dissipates quickly. Light roasted nose, with just a hint of chocolate. Nice roasted malt flavor, with hints of chocolate and toast. Medium mouthfeel. Holds flavor as it warms. A nice solid stout.
