Cask at The Bacchus, Newcastle. I was lucky enough to find 2 Thornbridge stouts in one pub the other day. The vanilla in this very subtle and the beer is just on the dry side. Well balanced with nice mouthfeel and not overpowering in the roast department. A good rich black colour with a light caramel head.

Bottle at the Twickenham tasting. Aroma is roasty, small chocolate character. Taste is similar with the vanilla comign through, however not really doing much for me.

A Mes rate: Bottle picked up by Sim somewhere in Chesterfield.Awesome appearance. Close to pitch black with a thick and creamy cappucino head. Dusky malty aroma with a ton of coffee and slight hints of vanilla. My god this is gorgeous. Perfectly weighted. Superb Thornbridge stoutiness with clear but not overpowering vanilla. Stunning chocolate and heavy coffee bean notes, perfectly dry and a stunning balancing bitterness in the finish that lasts considerably. Delicately roasted, perfect level of carbonation. Damn. This is adorable stuff.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle picked up from their tap near Sheffield, by my dad, cheers dad, had this 28-12-07 Pours almost black but not quite on holding it to the light it actually is just a very dark brown with a nice white head, with osme bubbles around the side of the glass. Aroma is slightly malty but with the best will in the world I failed to get much else on the nose. Taste was first off great bitterness snd the realy lovely roasted malts but there is a tantalising creaminess and with an old fashioned flavour of vanilla one that reminds me of those old Walls blocks of cornish Ice cream in short lovely it even manages to finish a bit dry, another top notch beer from Thornbridge Hall, loved this!

Bottle. Pours a very dark red with a tight, very small head. Aroma is caramel, some roast, toast, smoke. Smooth in the mouth, vanilla fades to a woody astringent finish.

Cask@Reading BF. Fairly nice. Some nice roasted malt notes, with notes of mocha, vanilla and chocolate. Mouthfeel is slightly thin and lighter than i like my stouts, but this had some nice flavour.
