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.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2006
Cask@Reading Beer Festival. Slightly roasty, with a slightly sticky mouthfeel and malt character. Lightly grainy, and lightly crisp. I quite liked this.

jackl (5291) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Cask @ CPK. Deep reddish brown with basically no head. The nose is sweet milk chocolate, vanilla, syrup and fudge. Certainly sweet over roasted flavors. The taste is rich chocolate, blackberry fruit, mild vanilla. The finish is lightly dry and hoppy. Smooth and creamy. Soft. Overall, this is a beer of great economy - you get a lot of flavor for your 4.1%. Very nice.

wimpyjoe (5068) - 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.

mjs (4974) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 17, 2014
(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.

DanielBrown (3996) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2005
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Dark and glutinous. Gentle hot choc flavour. Pretty smooth, with a nice, easy going feel. Slight metal aftertaste, but overall itís more good product from this excellent brewery. I thought this might be a Mild, as I am obsessed by the style and reasoned that it lacked the neccessary oomph for a Stout. But Iíll bow to Ianís judgement and accept that itís one less Mild rate :(

RichTheVillan (3902) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2014
Cask at The Victoria; dark chestnut brown pour with quickly dissapating soapy beige head, coffee aroma, quite a thin watery stout with some coffee and chocolate, and a hint of sweet brown sugar.

Hermod (3719) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 14, 2014
Cask @ Angleterre. Dark brown, thick lasting light brown head. Toasted malty, slightly sweet aroma, hint of coffee. Flavor has roasted malt, licorice, mild coffee notes. Thinnish, but quite tasty. Dry salty finish.
