Grumbo (1218) - Ipswich, Suffolk, - JAN 12, 2013
Cask from The Ale House, Chelmsford. This is a delicious, easy to drink milk stout. Very dark with a good head - no beer could look better! Thick, excellent texture. Milk chocolate aroma. Best beer of the year so far...

Towey1989 (1750) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2016
Keg at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A black colour with a fizzy beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, some caramel, slight dark fruits and subtle spicy hops. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate, dark fruits, some coffee, slight vanilla, a little lactose and subtle spicy hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dryish, fruity, roasted bitterness in the finish. More bitter than sweet for a milk stout and also quite fruity, a decent amount of dark fruit flavour. Lively but drinkable.
