A dream ticket of a beer, full of flavour with a touch of the blarney. Brewed using dark crystal malt and with a robust coffee caramel flavour, it doesn’t leave a bitter taste as it’s a winner everyone can back!

Leighton (18744) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2012
Cask at the King’s Head, London. Pours dark black-brown-red with a fine, off-white foam head. Some lacto roast in the nose. Light sweet flavor with ham and roast, light tang, and dusty cocoa. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Light sweet finish with faint smoke, ham, mild chocolate and light earth. Not too impressive. Kind of bland.

harrisoni (17351) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2010
Cask handpull at The Pheasant, Ashford. Black with brown edges, lasting cream head. Some nice choc, on an ok aroma. Light in mouth, more a roasted dark mild than a stout. Quite roast on the finish.

TBone (16197) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2011
Cask@Market Porter
A day after St. Patrick’s Day! Almost opaque brown color, creamy brown head. Quite weak nose: just a bit of chocolate, lactose and toasted malts. Silky soft palate. Coffee, toasted malts and lactose in the flavor. Lingering coffee and some hops in the aftertaste. It’s a bit like Guinness with milk stout kick. Good but light.

imdownthepub (13397) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2009
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Flat, Dark Brown no head. Really thin for a stout, virtually tasteless apart from a little background bitterness, tinny, what on earth is this about?

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2010
Cask conditioned handpump Racehorse Northampton. A black stout with a good off-white bubbly head. Some slightly roasty malt notes in the aroma together with a dash of vegetation. Roasty in the mouth and in spite of it needing more depth, there’s an unexpected dash of citrus at the end. Hmmm.

Svesse (7932) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2012
(Cask at Carpenter’s Arms, Marble Arch, London, 21 April 2012) Black colour with foamy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of coffee, chocolate, ashes and roasted malt. Malty, roasted taste with coffee, chocolate, dark bread and a balanced coffee bitterness in the finish. Rather light body, quite dry. Highly drinkable and quite nice.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask at Baker Street Hobgoblin.
Almost black mahogany coloured with a thin beige head. Slight eggy sulphurous but a decent dark malt base keeps it on track. Plenty of liquorice, lots of burnt malt and a decent bitterness in the finish. Better than their usual rubbish but no show stopper.
