Cask at Craft Clerkenwell, , Saturday 13th February 2016 Pours dark brown edging to black with a slim head. Some light cocoa touches and milk chocolate a touch of burnt wood. Described as a breakfast stout, this is considerably weaker than many of this ilk, but it is a pleasant stout, though perhaps lacks a little body and is a bit thin.
