COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
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."

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.

Towey1989 (2561) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2017
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) 4.5% ABV. A deep brown colour with a medium beige head. Soft aroma of roasted malts, liquorice, some dark fruits, slight molasses and subtle caramel. Taste of roasted malts, liquorice, molasses, some dark fruits, maybe blackcurrant, a little caramel and subtle chocolate. A dry, kinda liquorice, blackcurrant bitterness in the finish. You have to really put your nose in to get an aroma but the taste is roasty, liquoricy and subtle malt fruity. A surprisingly crisp finish. Ok.
