o,5l fles meegebracht uit York. Donker bruin, met een beperkte witte kraag. Aroma is duidelijk cacao met geroosterde mout op de achtergrond. Smaak is mooi bitter, mondgevoel is tikkeltje dun, nasmaak is redelijk vol.

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.

Some soft chocolate and coffee vibes, cinnamon? Medium raisin or port vibes, light bitterness. Ok, not amazing.

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.
