Cask at The Hope, Carshalton. Great aroma of dark chocolate and coffee, which are there in the mouthful as well along with roasted malt. Really enjoyable stout.
Cask at Orpington LC, deep black, thin head, cocoa and soy nose, dry and bitter chocolate, hints of sweet fruity malt underneath. Lovely. The_Osprey (7991) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2014
Cask at The Hope Carshalton. Black, small off-white foamy head leaves full layer of lacing. Aroma is strong liquorice up front, ash, bit of gravy. Body is medium, quite foamy, very low carbonation. Taste is tangy, intense liquorice, background coffee, vegetal flavours. If you like strong liquorice then you’ll like this. Personally I wasn’t too fussed - too sweet and liquorice heavy for me. john44 (3101) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2014
