COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Seasonal, Spring;
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!

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.

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.

Hand pulled at the White Swan, Oldbury. Smooth fluffy head and mouthfeel. Pleasant enough gentle stout flavour up to a point; then gets a little plasticky on the finish. Burnt kitchen worksurface. Usual Wychwood harsh undertone. Subsequent sips lead me to believe that there isn’t that much flava.

MesandSim (7119) - 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.

Cask at the The Flowerpot, Hurley? Berkshire, on the latest leg of the Thames Tipple 11-04-09 Pours dark brown with a light beige head. Roasty and slightly nutty tasting, really good ground coffee flavours, some burnt wood. Far better than I was epxecting, not bad at all. A6 A3 F7 P4 Ov14 3.4

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?
