Cask @ Wallace Hartley, Colne. Black with a creamy-frothy off-white head. Has an easy drinking texture, although a denser taste with a mix of floral dark malts and light roasted ones. The latter is dominant in its nose. jmgreenuk (9459) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - FEB 11, 2014

On cask at Derby Tup, Chesterfield - Decent enough stout, looks good, black body, two finger beige head that lasted all the way to the end. Nose was almost mocha in the beginning, before you start picking out toasted and roasted cereals. Dry to taste, but with a creamy palate which complimented it. I enjoyed this one. Not bad.

Cask, handpump, FFTMC, Oxford, Friday 14th September 2012 Very dark brown, almost black but not quite. Bit smokey in mouth with a little sausage detected. However the nose is very much liquorice, served a tad warm unlike the Raw Edge Pale Ale. Nice and a bit cooler would be even better. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Black with cream head. Pleasant fruity type beer with a hint of caramel, fullish on the palate, chocolate malts with fruity sweetness. Perhaps more Porter for me than Stout, but a decent beer though.
