3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned handpump White Horse London 03/05/13. A dark dark ruby coloured beer with a whitish head. A sweet and nutty beer. Some roasty malt and a bitter aftertaste. Chocolate gives it some sweetness and makes it feel a little un stout like. Feels a bit powdery like this kind of beer can but it’s reasonably tasty.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium beige head doesn’t last. Nearly opaque black body goes deep dark brown at edges. Roasty dusty chocolate aroma with toast notes. Dry-sweet roasty chocolatey earth taste with toast and toffee notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry roasty chocolatey honey aftertaste with earthy rye crisp bread notes. Lovely. Highly drinkable, full of flavour, and complex. Very harmonic, too. (0.5l bottle, from House of Trembling Madness, York.)

Bottle, bought from Yorks’ Evil Eye Lounge. Pours dark brown. Taste and aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malts, and a touch of coffee. Dry, and quite thin-bodied. We drank it with venison steaks - a really good match.
