(Cask at GBBF, London Earl’s Court, 6 Aug 2009) Black colour with frothy, pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with dark chocolate, coffee and liquorice. Roasted, malty taste with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa and a firm coffee bitterness in the dry finish. Rather light body. Very nice stout and seriously drinkable with a fairly low abv.

Cask gravity at Reading BF 09. Also known as No. 2 stout. One of the best beers of the first day. Black, big lasting tan head. Very roasty aroma. Very roasted overall. I liked it. Good fullness, lovely dark choc and I would happily recommend this to any Raterbeerian

Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Nottingham BF. A black stout with a nice beige head. The aroma is dry and roasty and particularly inviting, whereas there is some fruit in the mouth. A well brewed tasty stout.
