Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Black with a thin off-white creamy head. Has plenty of mint choc-chip in both its aroma and taste. It’s pretty much the liquid version of the ice cream it is that stated!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask. Hallamshire House, Sheffield. Very dark brown. Bubbly, thick, tan head. Dark, roast malts. Fresh mint. Spearmint. Hint of coffee grinds. Taste is mostly sweet. Some dry. Some roast bitter. Bit of treacle. Full, chewy palate. Finishes light bitter. A lot less minty than it used to be, I’m sure. And better for it.

Pours a dark brown, minimal head. Great scent of the chocolate mint from the pint. Taste is pleasant, slight aftertaste of the chocolate mint that is quickly replaced with a strong stout taste. Nice for one pint, couldn’t have more
