(Cask): Black with an off white head. Aroma of milk chocolate, roasted malt and fruits. Roasted malt base with a sweet fruitiness punching through with some hops, chocolate. Kind of black forest gateau blend of flavours. Quite rich and a good bitterness on the finish. Quality stuff! leaparsons (10541) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2012

Cask conditioned handpump Wig & Pen Northampton 13/11/12. A black beer with a grey head and lacing. This is delicious. Sharp piney hops. Some roasty notes. Really hoppy. More a BIPA than an oatmeal stout although there is definitely a roasty element. So drinkable and bloody tasty.

The finish is quite dry, however its more notable for being quite rich and smooth. Like this. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6 imdownthepub (14546) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2010
