3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at Birmingham Beer Fest ’11. Black with cream head. I found this beer to be fairly sweetish initially, thick enough with a heavy, fruity body. Some charcoal pushes itself through. It’s ok.

Cask at Market Porter, London. Pous dark brown with a medium, beige head. Holds a dark, hard malt nose, with light cocoa and roast. Bittersweet flavor, a bit ashy, with some char and bitter, dark chocolate. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. The finish is very dry and roasty, with mild, malty sugars and lingering peat and earth impressions. Solid stout.

Cask gravity, Hereford 2010. Found a stout at last. Mahogany, beige rim? Still- burning charcoal aroma. Sweaty high cocoa infused with herbs, burnt toast, carbon, souring black cherry, some deep hops wrestling with the roast. Thin but interesting.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask (gravity dispense) at Reading Beer Festival, 30 April 2009. Although there was some confusion, it appears that the beer on offer at the festival was Stringers No 2 Stout, not Stringers Dry Stout as shown in the programme. Pitch black. Beige head. Almost opaque. Good condition. Big roast aroma. Lots of chocolate - smooth but firm. Loads of body. Excellent stuff.
