Cask conditioned at The North Norfolk Railway Beer Festival ’17, Sheringham, Norfolk. Very dark brown with cream head. This proved to be dark roasted with a keen bitterness, quite drying. There is a toasty character, a hint of coffee powder. Pretty reasonable. mabuzzer (842) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - JUN 22, 2017

Cask gravity at the 2016 Watford beer festival 4/11/2016. A dark ruby red mahogany brown coloured pour with a lasting loose dirty tan head. Aroma is lemon, smooth woody roast, liquorice, black malts. Flavour is composed of black liquorice, black jack sweets, ginger, hint of wood, little treacle. There is a flavour I can’t quite put my finger on. Palate is semi sweet, rounded, milky, decent cask condition. I like it. TBone (17524) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 11, 2016

Dark almost opaque brown color, small off-white head. Sweetish licorice aroma. Light to medium-bodied, but then a bit watery. Front has sweet licorice. Then hops and aftertaste has some medicinal notes. A bit weird.
Cask, glass on a sampler tray at Helgi’s Bar. A few patches on the surface, rings of lace down the glass. Near-black body. Slightly roasted aroma of earthy malts and chocolate. Mid-sweet chocolate flavours, hints of earth and ash. Roasted, bittersweet endnotes. Medium bodied. Really a well made stout considering the low abv. (Kirkwall 15.04.2016).
