Bottle. Pours black with a slight coffee coloured head. Strong choclate aromas with some coffee, smoke and vanilla. Taste is very luxurious and rich. Sweet and bitter. Gorgeous but one bottle at a time is plenty.

Keg at PSBH, Manchester. Fierce-looking black with brown head, some lacing. Dark malty, molasses-filled aroma. Taste is roasty bitter coffee, sweet dark chocolate. Wood notes running through. Decent stuff, but somehow I expected a bit more from it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Black body with a thick tan head. Good lacing. Aroma of rich chocolate, sugar and wood. Flavour of chocolate ice-cream, pine, vanilla and a hint of orange zest. Medium body with a slick texture. Soft fizz. Lives up to its name - this is a cake-like Stout. I wouldn’t want more than one.
