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-conditioned at the Euston Tap, 10/02/2011. Dark brown with a decent, off-white head. Light, berry fruit and chocolate aroma with a touch of roastiness. very easy, slightly sweetish drinking, with plenty of dark fruit, some black coffee and dryish finish. Very good.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2009
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.

ManVsBeer (6232) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2014
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.

jackl (5916) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, 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.

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.

(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.

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.
