4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask@lychgate, wolverhampton. Black with small head. Aroma of cocoa powder. The taste is the best part, feels like I am drinking chocolate with a touch of coffee. Palate is medium to full body. An excellent stout, the best I have had so far.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at GBBF 16, the champion beer no less. Deep black colour, thick long lasting white foam. Certainly delivers on the promise of chocolate, quite a silky heavy chocolatey feel, a bit darker than milk chocolate but equally not the 80% stuff either. It is nice no doubt, but also one of those slightly gimmicky beverages that tastes great for one sip but by the end of my glass I was kind of glad I didn’t have a whole pint to get through.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Black body with a thin beige head. Good lacing. Aroma of ash, chocolate, cocoa powder and burnt toast. Flavour of chocolate, herbs, plum and Coco Pops. Thin to medium body with a smooth mouthfeel. Light fizz. Lives up to the name. I’d like to try this on cask.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A deep brown colour with a foamy beige head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, a little vanilla and subtle dark fruits. Taste of chocolate, caramel, some roasted malts, a little vanilla and subtle dark fruits. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A sweet, slightly roasted, chocolatey finish. Very chocolatey and can taste genuine chocolate ingredients but for me, it’s far too sweet and with only a subtle roasted bitterness in it. Ok.

On cask up the White Lady.
Appearance - deep brown to black. Fawn head.
Nose - a bit of toffee and chocolate coming through. Some ginger bread.

Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a finish that could be zippier!
Overall - deep flavoured but could be fresher on the finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the Regal (JDW), Cambridge. Dark brown, very dark. Cloudy tan head. Luscious chocolate aroma. Taste is sweet and malty but there’s a bitter almost sour backbone. Thin body and oddly astringent aftertaste. Surprising but I don’t care for this.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask. Pours mahogany dark with tan cream top. Aroma decidedly chocolate and more Cadburys than Lindt. Taste sweet chocolate malt with mild coffee notes and fruity tang. The best stout on the Nottingham stroll this year and in Wetherspoons.
