Keg at Sinclair’s Oyster Bar, Manchester. A deep brown to black colour with a creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, some coffee and smoke. Taste of roasted malt, milk chocolate, coffee, some dried fruit and dry nuttiness. Light bodied and smooth texture. A dry, roasted finish. Very similar to Guinness but has its brewed in England, and Manchester in particular, you get the proper homegrown taste like Guinness tastes in Ireland.

Keg at Glasshouse Stores, Soho. It pours jet black with a thick, dense light tan head. The nose is toasty, earthy roast, coffee grounds, mild smoke and cocoa. The taste is bitter, roast, peppery, charred wood, ash, mild acidity and a touch of cocoa with a dry, roasty finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Very solid dry stout.
