Cask conditioned handpump White Horse London 03/05/13. A dark dark ruby coloured beer with a whitish head. A sweet and nutty beer. Some roasty malt and a bitter aftertaste. Chocolate gives it some sweetness and makes it feel a little un stout like. Feels a bit powdery like this kind of beer can but its reasonably tasty.

Butelka 500ml. Czarny kolor. Piana bezowa,srednia o lekko kremowej konsystencji, pozostaje w szkle. Aromat czekolady,kakao ciemnych palonych slodow.w smaku dominuje czekolada, dosc gorzkie posmaki kakao. W tle majacza owoce lesne. Delikatne w smaku i bardzo pijalne..

Perpignan73 (40) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2016
Bitter 500ml chilled and poured at home. Small brown head that disappeared instantly leaving not a great looking drink; lovely sweet, malty chocolate nose; some roasty tones with hints of vanilla; heavy bitter taste which gave way to a chocolate palate and dry bitter finish. A tad too much bitterness - could do with more balance.

mjs (7112) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2016
(Cask at Gallows Bird, 20160116) The beer poured black. Its head was small, sparse and lightly brown. Aroma had burnt malts, dark chocolate and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were burnt malts, sweetness, chocolate, earth and bitterness. Afteraste had chocolate, burnt malts and bitterness. Not bad brew but a bit too harsh. Nice chocolate finish.

Fra cask p Hop & Vine Hull 26 Nov 15. Svart. Lavt, litt farget skum. Teppelacing. Svak aroma av ryk & rstet malt. Litt sjokolade. Trr avslutning. Blir i stligste laget.

Alexi91 (437) - Bristol/Romsey, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2015
Origin: Bottle. Vessel: Snifter. Supplier: Corks Of Cotham (Bristol). Nose is sweet with hints of berry. Pours a murky black with little head. Taste quickly focuses into burnt wood. Comparatively thin body. A good winter beer for a cold night.

ianwelby (1330) - SCOTLAND - AUG 13, 2015
Black beer with a decent beige head. Aroma and taste are both mild chocolate and malt, and the flavour adds a whack of hop to. Quite light for a chocolate stout but very drinkable all the same.
