COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Occasional;
Born from a conversation between a chocolatier, Lee from Pure Origin Chocolate and ourselves we embarked on creating a chocolate stout. After much enjoyable sampling we decided on a bold and complex 85% cacoa single origin Colombian chocolate which provides a lovely dry balanced bitterness and a long espresso finish, we think it works rather well.

mariuspoenari (2692) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2016
50cl bottle. Pours a very dark brown, with a lively head that disappears completely quite quickly. Smells of roasted malts, smoke, dark cherries. Tastes like smoked wood, roasted malts, dark cherries and bitter dark chocolate. High carbonation, fizzy mouthfeel with a bitter-sweet finish.

Towey1989 (2829) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2016
Cask at The Earl Grey Inn, Leek. A black colour with a medium tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, some burnt caramel, slight liquorice, a little dark fruits, a hint of smoke and subtle vanilla. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, some burnt caramel, slight earth, a little smoke and subtle vanilla. Medium bodied and a smooth texture. A dry, roasted bitterness in the finish. Big chocolate aroma, like a good chocolate ice cream. The flavour is slightly drier, with coffee and a little earthiness coming through. A little thin on the finish but still tasty, smooth and overall, another great Redwillow beer.

Aroma: chocolate, light toasted malts. Appearance: dark brown, small, creamy, beige head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: same as palate, some bittersweet milk chocolate, toasted malts again, some dry cacao in the finish. Overall: nice chocolate flavours in aroma and palate. Pint at CASK Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico.

3.4
Nocturne (1992) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2015
Cask at Piccadilly Tap, Manchester. Near black. Thin tan head. Notes of cocoa, roast and a vinous red grapey character beneath. Never too sweet, and a little dry at the end. I love the smoothness of it. Works nicely on cask. Good stuff, not fully convinced about the chocolate leanings though.
