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 at The Churchill Tavern, Ramsgate: Opaque, black beer with a small tan head. Roasted malt and a nice hit of chocolate. This is actually a pretty tasty stout and completely caught me off guard, well done Wychwood. Not a patch on the ’old’ Hobgoblin though...

gegwilson (621) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2013
Wychwood’s imitation Guinness promises little. Pours jet black with reasonable cream head. Bitter flavours with lots of burnt toast and a touch of blackcurrant. Not terrible, but not great. Fine as a session stout.

Svesse (5855) - 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.

JorgeLee (1067) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2012
Cask at the Kings Head W2. Not jet black for a stout - some brown in the depths - and small head. A smooth and drinkable version of a stout with caramel rather than roasty flavours. Very light palate for a stout. Pleasant enough but lacking excitement.

Leighton (9833) - 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.

BeerViking (2084) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2012
Cask at the Botanist, Kew, Dark red-brown with off-white head. Bit of coffee and roast malt on the nose, chocolate, slightly watery body with a little coffee and a touch of tart red fruit, dry bitter chocolate finish. More like a dark mild than a stout (or tout).

TBone (11898) - 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.

tommann (2487) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2011
Cask at the Bridge, Kingswinford. Pours pitch black with a medium head. Aroma is dry, milky roasted coffee. Not much to start. Dry roasted coffee malt finish.

Cask Handpump at the Stork Hotel, Birkenhead 27/03/2010 Some roast aroma. Dark coloured and rich on the palate with a hint of dryness in a crisp and bitter finish.
