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.

Bottle at Chrisoís Kook Tasting 09. Thanks to my colleague Jenny who brought this back from the pub in Stourbridge for me. Black, brown edges. Thin beige head. Decent stout. Very tasty. Really drinkable stout. Dry stout. Lovely UK stout aroma. Fullish in mouth, touch of vanilla, bit grainy on the malts, but good roast malt. Lovely.

Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest í10. V Dark Brown with slight head. Heavy with deep rich malty notes whilst being reasonably fruity, molasses and treacle, heavy palate and chocolate. The vanilla shows through making it quite complex for this simple palate. Good.
