3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (backlog). Very deep brown colour with some ruby notes, small beige head, which vanishes quite quickly. Aroma is liquorice, some ashes, mild smoked wood as well as some slight toffee. Flavour is a mix of the same along with a mild grassy and earthy tone from the hops. Easygoing brew, which works well as a session beer too.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml Bottle conditioned: BBD 23 Oct 2013. Poured carefully into an ’Abbot Ale’ glass tankard at home on 27 Jun 2013.
This is one dark beer: on top of the deep, deep brown/black brew sat a creamy covering of tanned foam. The head gave some heavy lacing before turning into a wisp and collar mid-tasting. I don’t think any sediment left the bottle, but the beer is so dark it was difficult to tell, not a lot of liquid or grist in the bottle after pouring though.
The nose was roasted, almost burnt malty, dark chocolate and peat bogs.
The taste is dry, malty and clean: a bitterness arrives mid-sip and carries on into the aftertaste. The peat bog aromas do not get into the taste, the dark (bitter) chocolate does, that’s a relief!
Good body depth and a very pleasant Stout in deed.
