bartlebier (3929) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 3, 2017
Cask halfpint at Nellies, aka SamSmith-owned The White Horse Inn, Beverley, EastYorkshire. - Pours both cocoa-powdery and creamy from its cask. Dry cocoa roast and thin toasted bread, thin filter coffee and chocolate milk in aroma. Great hop dryness and a thin layer of roast over a sessionable traditional dry stout that is as easy to session as to love, especially in this its natural environment.

A great looking pint, pitch black with a crisp white head. I am new to stout and for me this was delicious. I would drink it again in a heartbeat.

EdButterfield (23) - Dronfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2017
Keg @ Sinclairs Oyster Bar. Aroma is lacking, a little roasted malt but nothing much. Appearance is good, nice and black like a stout. Taste is sickly and artificial, also too much carbonation on the palate. This beer is terrible in keg, if youre going to have it make sure its in cask.
