Simply Superb Stout
A powerful mix of multiple malts give this stout its intense black colour and heady aromas. Amazingly rich, upfront flavours give way to a mellow yet luscious finish, with bags of long lasting hop character. A beautiful beer to refresh your soul at the end of the day.

Essex (51) - Cardiff, - JAN 7, 2013
Poured from a 500ml bottle into a pint glass. Pours a dark black colour with a short lived white head. Smells very dark and burnt from the malts. Tastes similar, watery but a dark burnt malty taste, with a vague hop bitterness on the finish. Fairly messy too. Overall a decent quaffable, but slightly messy.

imdownthepub (12804) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2016
Cask conditioned at The Beer Emporium, Bristol. Very dark brown with cream head. Smooth and really quite fruity stout, there are chocolate roasted malts with a hint of liquorice then a plummy fruitiness. Reasonable palate, some sweetness. Decent.

Holmen1 (4625) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 27, 2015
Fra flaske på Mi2 Cardinal, aug-15: brunsvart med fint beige skum som varer. Under dette finner jeg mørk kaffe, sjokolade, mørke maltsorter og brent sukker, litt kaffesyrlighet. Tørr, god og lettdrikkelig uten at jeg blir direkte lyrisk. En kompetent øl med mye smak for bare 4,9%.

Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours very dark clear ruby with a small creamy tanned head. Aroma of dark delights, tar and liquorice,, the same goes for the taste dry dark delights, tasty and complex beer with session qualities.

Bottle. Black with a medium head that quickly dissipate. Dry with traces of chocolate and coffee. A way above average stout that is pretty impressive.
