The vanilla comes through strongly on the nose with some toasty notes. Pours black as yer íat with a thin head. The flavour is very nice - balanced dark notes of cocoa and hickory threaded with sweet vanilla and buttery cereals. Finish is warming and sweet with just a little earthy bitterness comes through.

Poured a dark mahogany with a frothy tan head. The aroma is rich bitter and slightly alcoholic. The flavour is big bitter, with loads of liqourice and somewhat creamy. A super beer and highly drinkable.

Are the words íMud Cityí a tromp líoeil? I hope they are when Dom is discussing his beery member. Some choc, and a little dark fruit, nice, a classic I know. Yes. Pixies.

wimpyjoe (2967) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2013
Stout with a noticeable strength and feels heavy in the palate, but its mild roasted aroma and mild chocolatey flavour are not compromised.

Better than I thought, but not as good as I wanted. How often is that the case? Wife says lacks depth but not sure if that was me or the beer. I was in the mood for something localish, been listening to a bit of Sabbath tonight and it seemed suitable. Not that Aston is Stourbridge but hey, Iím boring myself now so Iím off to do something else.

Bottle from Beers Of Europe, Kingís Lynn
Black color with generous head. Pleasing aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate and cream. Good body, round mouthfeel; very good chocolate flavor, creamy; the final is just a bit drier and metallic.
Overall a very good beer.
