2009 ... deep black ... thin tan head ... soft roast little coffee nose ... soft dry ... roast malt .
(Cask at GBBF, London Earl’s Court, 6 Aug 2009) Black colour with frothy, pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with dark chocolate, coffee and liquorice. Roasted, malty taste with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa and a firm coffee bitterness in the dry finish. Rather light body. Very nice stout and seriously drinkable with a fairly low abv.

Deep ruby colour, not much head. Roasted malts, caramel, sweet malts as well as mild notes of raisins in aroma. Flavour is syrup, wood, some mild bitter hops as well as mild notes of nuts.

Dark ruby, almost opaque color, tiny beige head. Intensive aroma of licorice, a bit sweet. Flavor is not as intensive, but it has dark malts, ash and licorice. Nice toasted aftertaste. Good one.
Cask gravity at Reading BF 09. Also known as No. 2 stout. One of the best beers of the first day. Black, big lasting tan head. Very roasty aroma. Very roasted overall. I liked it. Good fullness, lovely dark choc and I would happily recommend this to any Raterbeerian hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2008

Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Nottingham BF. A black stout with a nice beige head. The aroma is dry and roasty and particularly inviting, whereas there is some fruit in the mouth. A well brewed tasty stout.
