COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

A vibrant stout with hints of blackcurrant and plum, the dryness of the body is tempered by an enveloping crescendo of coffee and chocolate that descends to a fruit filled finale.

AshtonMcCobb (6397) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 18, 2017
On keg at the Hanging Bat. Appearance - opaque black. Slightly off white head. Nose - roast, chocolate and coffee. Taste - plenty of coffee. Dry roast coffee beans. Burnt bread. Palate - close to medium bodied. Dry crunchy middle section which continues through the finish. Overall - very dry. In fact, dry stout style really. Is there coffee in this?

Vladivostok (480) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2017
Nice creamy stout with just enough sweetness to balance out the roast malts. Not sure why but I havent drunk many stouts recently. This one was good enough to make me have a re-think.

FatPhil (15560) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 1, 2013
Cask (Kittys, Helsinki)
Lovely rich malty aroma, a touch porridgy and mashy, slight perfuminess, and some breakfast cereals. Looks great - dark red and a persistent loose tane head. Taste is WOW! This is a lovely well-aged porter, except that its also got the great roast and bitterness that justifies the "stout" moniker. Finish continues the burnt aspects, but the late finish has a huge dry earthy butteriness. So wonderfully full in the mouth. And the finish, with its dryness lasts a long time, almost acrid its so biting after a whole pint. Finish is looooooooong.
