tried 3 times - at the brewery, at Sheffield beer festival, and at the Harlequin. At the beer festival, it was served far too cold. The raisins were the prominent flavour, giving it an almost harsh sweetness (Im not a huge fan of raisins anyway). At the pub, at the correct temperature, the chocolate came through a lot more clearly, along with the dark malts, taking the sweet edge off and leaving a much more rounded flavour (rating based on the pub visit i.e. how the beer should taste!)

Cask at the Wharf. I wonder if this is the right beer. Aroma raisins and some spiciness. Dark brown with small white head. Taste raisin and lots of spice, maybe cinnamon. A nice beer if you like spiced beers.

Thick, oily, viscous black stout with an oaty, malty, pretty sweet character, moderate alcohol in the finish. The raisens are quite prominent and go fairly well with the stout. This was quite tasty and different, but not something I could drink a lot of.

Cask, Nottingham Fest 09. Very dark brown with a thin head. Aromas are raisins and chocolate with earthy hops and light soy. Flavours are dark and sweet chocolate with vinous notes and raisins. Sweet and fairly cloying but decent.
