Cask at the sportsman croxley. Opaque black with caramel tones. Big light tan head that lasts the whole way through the pint. Soft roast some choc earthy hop some berry. Flavour is really earthy, some farmyard manure. A bit slick with soft carbonation.

Lovely rich dark brown colour with a tiny lingering head. Smells roasty slight chocolate/coffee- it's a stout, innit? Taste is sweet with lingering bitterness. I never thought I liked stout really but this is nice, I think I will drink more stout even though this has a slightly watery mouthfeel. Nice.

Cask at Live and Let Live, Cambridge. Dark mahogany pour with a bubbly tan head. The flavour is smooth, malty and bitter. It has the smoothness and palate of a milk stout. An excellent and well balanced beer and perfect for a session.

(draught) pours a darkest murky brown colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of heavy raisins and burnt toffee, toasted malts, cardboard, liquorice and a hint of custard. flavour is mostly the same, lots of toasted malts, raisins and too much buttery toffee, with a very dry roasted-bitter finish. light to medium-bodied with soft carbonation.
