Aromas of roast malt and fruit.Roast malt flavours with added blackcurrant juice making a sweetish brew with a little liquorice.Went down quite well but too light for my sort of stout. DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2012

Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Dark chestnut, ruby hue with off white head. Quite a sweet, malty beer, pretty fruity, sweet blackcurrant cordial. Some roasty malt notes, but struggled to distinguish it as a stout.
