Black/red. Off white head. Creamy cappacino aroma. A mineral touch on the tongue, coffe, choc. A lasting hop bite. Hoppier than other oatmeals. I enjoyed.

Cask at ealing beer fest. Aroma is pritty roasty, but generally thin and grassy hop. Taste is similar, its fairly inoffensive and drinable, but could do with some choc malt.

A Mes rate: Gravicask at Ealing Beer Festival.
Almost black with a very thin beige head. Fruity and astringent aroma with some slight roasty coffee. More coffee and roasted malt in the flavour with plenty of fruit and peaty notes. A straight forward stout that is nothing too special.
