Cask; Status uncertain. Also available brewery conditioned and cold filtered in 500ml bottles.
Fuggles and Challenger hops plus a blend of four local barley malts create an aromatic, strong, dark chocolate cream stout with a satisfying bittersweet aftertaste.

Initially, I thought this would be a great beer. The aroma was dark, sweet, caramel malt. The color was as dark with a matching, foamy head that was long lasting. My first taste was very malty and I was needing some hops to come and and take away the thick sweetness. Little hops was to be found and my palate remained sticky and heavy. This require more hops - not enough balance.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Very dark and fairly flat, with a thin head.Rich aromas of dark-roast malt and bitter coffee notes,and hints of red fruit. The first taste is just as dark and bitter. Flavors of smoky dark malts are intensified by the bitter hops. Dark chocolatenotes are also there.Not much in the way of cream flavor. A little sweetness becomes apparent towards the end, but this is largely hidden under the burnt bitterness, which lingers long into the aftertaste.

A delicious Cream Stout from the good old boys of England. Tradtionally sound this beer is as much a joy to taste as it is to look at. Also the bottle fits perfectly in both hands.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2005 Very nice. Pouring dark, dark brown and syrup-like with a meager brown head, this has strong roasted/burnt malt aromas along with those of bittersweet chocolate. Smooth in the mouth, yet carrying a bit of a bitter hop snap, this is chocolate and coffee flavored, all well roasted, with just a hint of smoke and some sweet caramel near the end. Finshes on a dry coffee note. Nice.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2005
Tasted in Toronto. Obtained from a trip my wife took to San Jose California. Tasted in an english pint glass. Appearance is thick and viscous, very very opaque, syrupy with little or no head. Stands up like an imperial stout. Aroma is sweet - alcohol on the nose is evident. Hints of burnt caramel and licorice. Reminds me slightly of the Mill St. coffee porter in scent. Flavour is fairly well balanced. Not too sweet or bitter. Starts off with creamy taste, like coffee and cream. The slightly burnt/bitter elements then begin to form in the flavour, roasted malt and sweet caramalization. Pretty good stuff.

crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 22, 2005
Good in a simple way. Creamy smooth with sweet flavor with notes of chocolate and coffee. Not a whole lot here, but that isn’t always a bad thing.

lamas (1339) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 21, 2005
Bottle. Pours a near opaque black with thick bubbly tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is of toffee, brown sugar and rich coffee. Taste is of toffee and roasted malts. Somewhat creamy. A little dry but still very tasty.
