3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Nearly black with a small creamy, slightly off-white head. Not a very stated stout, but it’s thinnish taste may account for this, as well as its fairly easy drinking texture for 5%. There’s hardly any roasted malt in this and its sweetness is low.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance - black with a red hue. Nice head.
Nose - roast and dark chocolate. Struggling to find the vanilla.
Taste - perhaps a faint vanilla note since I’m really searching for it. Again dark chocolate.
Palate - medium bodied at most with a creamy texture and a dry finish.
Overall - good beer but not great by Thornbridge standards.
