Keg at The Cardinal’s Hat, Worcester. Black with cream head. There is an immediate flavour of chocolate despite the low temperature, quite creamy with some bitterness as well. There is a charry note to the malt. Fullish on the palate. Not bad.

Half, served from cask at the Red Squirrel. Creamy, tan-coloured head that laces well. Deep, dark brown coloured body. Roasted earthy malts on the nose. Dark malty flavours of chocolate and dark bread. Slightly roasted endnotes. Creamy texture. Quite alright, a bit thin bodied though (Edinburgh 07.08.2013).

jercraigs (9849) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
2014-06-28. Ruby tinged black body with a modest brown head. 3+ Aroma is mild, light cocoa like dusty roast, mild fruity undertones. Flavour is surprisingly mild and fruity, dusty musty cocoa hints and a not quite roasty character to it. Average bodied palate, light carbonation is a bit thin and very much so for a stout. Not terrible but would fare better as a mild than a stout perhaps? On tap at Inn Deep, Glasgow
