Cask Conditioned, @ the Pigs Ear Festival London. chriso (7569) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2004
Jet black, with a purple hue. Wonderfully generous aroma that leaps out of the glass. Juicy, liquorice, tart bitter flavours, subtle seductive sweetness that keeps you coming back for more.
Coffee notes are very noticeable in the aroma and flavour of this stout. Moderately dry and quite full bodied, with a smooth mouthfeel. Pretty good. Cask (gravity dispense), St Albans Beer Festival.

Nice dark beer with a malty and roasted aroma and a light plainly bitter coffee flavour. Overall a nice plain stout.
Bottle from Darts Farm. Deep reddish brown almost black colour with a thin tan head. Aroma has roasted sweet malts. Taste mostly sweet, with a slight bitter roasted finish. Thinnish body. duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2004
