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 at stags head, sheffield. Black with a tan head. Aroma is subtle coffee and faint roasty malts. Taste is very mild, lingering bitterness on the tongue. Mild carbonation and a medium/thin body, not bad though, great beer to swill round the mouth, very smooth.

wimpyjoe (4424) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2014
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Very dark dark and slightly hazy with a small creamy head. Itís a little too thin and session style in its texture which negates some of the stout flavours. It only has a very light roasted malt.

FatPhil (9596) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 20, 2014
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.

(Cask at Angleterre, 20140117) The beer poured black. Its head was small, almost white and it lasted long. Aroma had chocolate, toasted malts and sweet hops. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were toasted malts, chocolate, sweet hops and bitterness. Aftertaste was toasty and bitter. A nice balanced stout.
