Black, ruby edges, frothy beige head
Aroma of dark fairly sweet caramel, dark toffee, light nose
Taste of mellow roasted malts, dab of dark chocolate, some dry roast, touch of dark fruit, good
Palate - Medium body, a bit thin, soft sweet, dab of bitter roast
Overall - Not as dry and bitter as usual for a dry Irish stout. Quite decent.
Cask. Pour is black with a caramel head, aroma is toffee, coffee. Taste is coffee, toffee, malty, light burnt bitterness, body is thin, carbonation is gentle, texture is watery. Nice, but the body needs more punch allmyvinyl (10952) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 11, 2014
Keg at the Hanging Bat. Pours opaque dark brown, no head at first but a nice white one appears, like a certain other stout. Aromas has light coffee, light chocolate. Taste is more of the same. Clean, dry finish. Good.

Cask (Isis, Sunderland) - Dark brown with red tinges. Cocoa, coffee and dried fruit in the aroma. Roasted malty taste with coffee and chocolate coated almonds. gegwilson (3788) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Cask in the Isis, Sunderland. Nice deep mahogany body with a creamy white head. Smooth with toasty flavours, especially coffee. A nice session stout. Leighton (22084) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2013
Cask at the Pembury Tavern, London - shared with Jack. Pours clear brown with a weak, white foam head. Dry roasted malt aroma, some light smoke and earth. Very mellow roast in the flavor, light sweetness, faint minerals. Light in body with fine carbonation. Crisp finish with burnt toast, light rocks, faint cocoa. Meh, nothing special. Although, it’s worth noting that the condition of the beers at the Pembury on this visit has not been optimal. This beer was OK, but I’m sure it could be better.

Has an unusual soapy aroma for a stout and only a light texture and flavour. Probably a bad batch.
