themightylazza (108) - - DEC 21, 2015
Dark stout, roasted malt aroma. The palate is rather sweet and fruity and the finish is dryish and bitter. Not bad.

Fin (9796) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2007
Cast at The Smithfield, Derby, at the íSmithfestí - (pub beer festival) 08-09-07 According to the Durham website, this had previously been discontinued because of a lack of interest in cask stouts. Glad that this beer has made a re-appearance because I rather enjoyed it. Poured black with small head, typical roasted notes that one might expect, very tasty and full flavoured if a bit cloying at times, enjoyable but I would imagine one would be plenty.
