Keg at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A black colour with a medium tan head. Aroma of liquorice, blackcurrant, some roasted malts, coffee, slight red fruits, a hint of chocolate and subtle dark fruits. Taste of liquorice, blackcurrant, roasted malts, coffee, some red fruits, chocolate, slight dark fruits, a hint of pine and subtle herbal hops. Medium to full bodied and moderate carbonation. A long, dry, slightly piney and herbal, roasted malt bitterness in the finish. I agree that this is more of an imperial black IPA than stout but not this is complex. Lots of spicy fruit, then roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and finally herbal hops. Lovely. tommann (4033) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2018

Hoppy, coffee and if I tried this blindfolded I might think it was was an Imperial BIPA. Dry, dark fruits but roasty and bitter.
