This Oatmeal Stout takes its place as our ever-present dark ale. Rich and creamy, with a bitter finish of forest fruits and coffee. A nose of treacle, chocolate and smoke, named for the abundance of Celtic runes found on the rocks on the moors surrounding our historic town.

Bottle. Black body, off white head. Soft malty and caramelly aroma, full and nice. Clean, full yet soft classic stouty maltiness, quite lovely. Hah, wasn't too heavy on those notes at this point, but this was definitely a very tasty beer, perhaps the best Ilkley I've had yesterday.

Aroma of dark fruits, liquorice, burnt caramel, some roasted malts, slight chocolate, a hint of smoke and subtle coffee. Taste of liquorice, burnt caramel, chocolate, some roasted malts, slight dark fruits, a little smoke and subtle coffee. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, chocolate caramel bitterness in the finish. Complex, which I wasn’t expecting. A lot of sweet chocolate and caramel but a bit of spice, fruit and smoke. Very good.

sarauckelman (550) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2017
Dark opaque black with a very quickly dissipating head. Primary aroma is smoke, but it’s not a nice smoke, it’s an ashy, cigarette smoke. Bitter, with a very flat flavor profile. Overcarbonated. It didn’t work.

uckelman (813) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2017
Pours black. Huge, huge, colossal tan head, which dissipated afer a minute. Aroma is odd, like soda without the sweetness. Flavors are malt and a finish of ash.
