BCA part of a Christmas present from my dad was a selection of Thornbridge Hall beers, had this last night 01-01-07 and what a New Years Day treat this was. Poured dark with a huge creamy head, super chocolatey aroma’s from this rich creamy and smooth stout. This was very easy drinking and wonderfully tasty with the rich chocolate coming back through and at just 4.1% it really punhces above it’s weight, absolutely smashing beer.

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. jmgreenuk (9333) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 3, 2015
Cask at the Craft Beer Co, Covent Garden. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin broken light tan head. The aroma is light malt, earthy mineral. The flavour is light bitter with a light malt bitter coffee light smoky spice palate. Moderate to light bodied with soft carbonation. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2009 1. Cask Stillage at the Roundhouse, Barrow Hill 20/05/2006
Slight fruit aroma. Black with some alcohol present. Smooth on the palate initially but this finishes sharp dry and a little bitter.
2. Cask Handpump from the Festival Bar at the Crown Inn, Stockport 13/06/2009

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.

Cask-conditioned at the Euston Tap, 10/02/2011. Dark brown with a decent, off-white head. Light, berry fruit and chocolate aroma with a touch of roastiness. very easy, slightly sweetish drinking, with plenty of dark fruit, some black coffee and dryish finish. Very good. laiti (8374) - 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. DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2010

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. RichTheVillan (7766) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2014
Cask at The Victoria; dark chestnut brown pour with quickly dissapating soapy beige head, coffee aroma, quite a thin watery stout with some coffee and chocolate, and a hint of sweet brown sugar.
