Lancaster Black is a classic, traditional stout reminiscent of the beer typically found in Lancashire during the 18th and 19th century. Black combines a complex taste with a rich and full body. At 4.6%, Black may be dark in appearance but is surprisingly crisp with a full bouquet of crisp fruits, spices and floral aromas. Brewed using a combination of Cascade and Challenger hops combined with Chocolate and Maris Otter malt, Black is a stout for the true connoisseur."

500ml bottle (K Kamppi)
7 Lovely chocolatey and spicy aroma.
5 Jet black, lovely tight beige head.
6 Burnt and sharp retronasals, quite estery. Taste quite simple, mostly burntness dominated, and a bitterness that seems to be due to that burntness. However, it’s not thin on the malty body, and there are clearly some hops contributing too.
4 Smooth palate, crisp carbonation. The finish improves on the taste - here the hops come back out again. Whilst in the mouth they’re dominated by the burntness, where they can form vapours they themselves shine, so we have the aroma back again, with some lovely citrussy hops.
13 This is no jaw-dropper, but it’s certainly a very good stout. For a pasteurised bottle, it’s very good indeed. Right up there with Entire Stout, perhaps.

Clear dark beer, low carbonation stable beige head, several toffee, coffee and some sweet floral notes are felt. In palate has a medium body, with an oily texture, the flavor is bitter sweet but well balanced for a porter. The finish is clear and give you lots of coffee notes.

Watery, dry. Claims to be plush and velvet, both false. Nice English yeast strain smell with hints of toffee, little on hops and malt aroma. Aroma doesn't carry into the flavour, tastes like nothing almost, should be described as a light porter.

vinivini (3148) - Gomel, BELARUS - DEC 3, 2017
Bottle. Misty deep brown colour. Dense & stable off-white head. Nose: caramel, bread, roasted malts, minor fruit. Medium dry taste. dark malts. Roast, bread, restrained caramel. Low bitterness. Well-drinkable.

Cask at Sun Inn. Pours a deep brown with a tan head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has nice roasted malts with dark grains and a hint of dryness. Flavor has dry dark grains and roasted malts throughout.

4.6% black in colour with a good head, roast malt aroma, malt and liquorice taste.

ianwelby (1566) - SCOTLAND - APR 8, 2017
Black beer, creamy head. Not much aroma. Taste is earthy malt, bitter chocolate, some tangy fruit slightly cutting through it. Very rich, dry aftertaste. Lovely.

thejackpacker (732) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2017
Cask at London & County, Eastbourne (JDW). A very watery and flavourless stout

mzaar (3750) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2017
Fat @ Gordon Highlander, Inverurie. Svart öl med ett gräddigt beigt skum. Dofter av rostad malt och kaffe. Smakinslag av kaffe, lakrits, svarta vinbär och toffee. Torr munkänsla. Mycket trevlig.
