COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
A velvety dark, exceptionally smooth and creamy stout with soft treacle flavours and a full body. Not as strong as some traditional stouts, but lacking none of their taste.

Cask (Black Door, Helsinki)
Lovely gentle chocolatey roasty aroma. Very deep brown, small loose head. Lovely soft palate, carbonation as you would expect from a real ale. Again, that body has a wonderful soft chocolatey note. This a lovely stout. So drinkable Finish has great dry hops, just as I like in a stout, and they last for ever. They even get peppery the longer you stretch them. 4.1% stout - this is the target you should be aiming for - this hits gold.
