Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Black with a creamy off-white head. Has very light roasted malt notes, and its very milky character accounts for this, although feels thin in the palate for it.

danlo (1393) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2014
330ml bottle from Summer Wine Online. Black-brown colour, beige foamy head leaving lacing and aroma of roast malt, dark fruits, powdered chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, smokey notes, dark fruity and milky chocolate with some coffee earthy bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, soft carbonation, roast bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

Mörkt brun sojaliknande färg. Mycket len och ganska söt smak med en fudgeaktig eftersmak. Lättdrucket trots väldigt mörkt öl.

Foffern (1343) - Bodø, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle at home. Has clear and deep brown to black colour. Not so much foam, but a little beige colored. Roasted notes in the aroma along with more coffee, chocolate truffles and some leather. A little gentle aroma on this. The taste is light and sweet with more roasted malt, chocolate and some rubber. Mouth feel is silky and light, with an expected low bitterness. A nice sweet stout. A little gentle version, but is fairly easy to drink.

Hopmaestro (299) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
Aroma is really sweet and no roughness what so ever. It almost smells a little sugary. The taste has that milk chocolate feeling, a touch of vanilla and there’s is some darker roast coming through in the end. There is almost no bitterness at all here, but still I find it pretty enjoyable, even if it is on the weaker end. Acceptable.

@Indyman - Black, no head. Sweet malty aroma. Only a light roast in the flavour. It’s fairly sweet and creamy with low bitterness.

Bottle. Black, almost no head. Aroma of burned malt. Taste is sweet, of milk chocolate and mild coffee. Body is a bit thin. Decent stout.
