Cask @ NWAF, Derby. Very dark brown, almost black. Opaque. Malty, nutty, slightly sour aroma. Sweet, easy, malty taste, somewhat less complex than promised by the aroma. Undemanding, refreshing stout.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask from Cask Pub & Kitchen. Pours dark brown with a small, very firm beige head and great lacing. Heavy ash and burnt notes with roast and espresso. Smells good. Light vanilla and coffee in the taste. Reminds me of an iced coffee from back home. Some light roast behind it all. Thin mouth feel but I guess that comes with the ABV. Solid stuff for a low alcohol beer
