Cask at Waggon & Horses,Halesowen 23rd December.
Poured a dark reddish brown under a medium off white head.Aromas of roast malt and chocolate.Tasted as aroma implied with a treacle flavour coming through as well.A slight underlying bitterness throughout adding to the mix to make a rounded and highly drinkable stout although did not notice much in the way of port on this tasting.
