3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A Mes rate. Cask at The Magnet. Stockport.
Mahogany black with a decent beige head and lots of lace. Full on burnt malt, smoke, bitter coffee and chocolate aroma. Flavour is similar. Big smoke, plenty of rubbery stuff, just a lick of hops and some unexpected herbal notes. Something just that little bit different about. Drinks like somethng that is part way between a mild and a porter. An interesting brew indeed.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Very dark dark and slightly hazy with a small creamy head. It’s 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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
