Cask. Licorice stout offers licorice to the mouth more than the nose, although it is more dark malts and fruity hops on the latter. It's also brown rather than black, and the creamy lace head thins rapidly. So maybe the stout label misleads. This is something else (God bless it). Taste is sweet and bitter in due moderation with the licorice qualities in the background. Palate is thin for stout, medium for porter (is it a licorice porter?) feel is sticky, average carbonation, bittersweet finish. A distinctive addition that can be enjoyed by more than licorice lads.

Handpull cask at the Geldart, Cambridge. Brown with indigo flecks through the translucency. Small but thick cream-coloured head and a fair bit of lacing. The smell is more like blackberry than liquorice: very fruity with notes of charcoal and burnt coffee grounds. Taste is bitter, with quite a lot of tar liquorice in the finish. Thinner body than I normally like for a stout, and the bitterness turns slightly astringent in the aftertaste. Not perfect but pretty damn good.

Bottle from York Beer & Wine. Inky black with a large head of tan foam. It has a rich milk chocolate and liquorice flavour followed by a very smooth, creamy, roasted finish. Very good.

Dark amber - brown beer, small tan head. Palate is airy and dry with mild fine carbonation. Mellow dark malts, mild tang. Trace of creamy sweetness. The liquorice is light and well integrated. Smooth finish. Pretty drinkable.
