Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Very dark dark and slightly hazy with a small creamy head. It’s a little too thin and session style in its texture which negates some of the stout flavours. It only has a very light roasted malt. leaparsons (10797) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2013

Cask conditioned handpump Sheffield Tap Sheffield. A very dark brown coloured beer with a red hue and a very tight creamy off-white nitro looking head and tons of lace. This is a smooth roasty stout which is very dry. There isn’t a massive amount of flavour and I can’t help but feel the way it is dispensed really spoils it. There is some reasonable fruitiness. Would look to try this again without such a tight sparkler. laiti (8522) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 4, 2013
Cask @ Kitty’s. Aroma has some licorice tones and hay. Flavor has salty licorice and herbal tones. Just too salty. Cunningham (8456) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2017
Black as the night with a fine tan head. Good lacing down the sides of the glass. Looks good and inviting. Ok aroma with a pleasant intensity. Medium (-) body and a smooth carbonation level. Balanced sweetness. Mostly chocolate, roast and coffee. Mild easy drinkable stout. jackl (8447) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 5, 2012
[Cask at Baum in Rochdale, England]
Cask @ CPK. Deep reddish brown with basically no head. The nose is sweet milk chocolate, vanilla, syrup and fudge. Certainly sweet over roasted flavors. The taste is rich chocolate, blackberry fruit, mild vanilla. The finish is lightly dry and hoppy. Smooth and creamy. Soft. Overall, this is a beer of great economy - you get a lot of flavor for your 4.1%. Very nice. Hermod (8416) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 14, 2014
Cask @ Angleterre. Dark brown, thick lasting light brown head. Toasted malty, slightly sweet aroma, hint of coffee. Flavor has roasted malt, licorice, mild coffee notes. Thinnish, but quite tasty. Dry salty finish.
