One of the best stouts I’ve had for ages.
Really creamy full flavour, really easy drinking. A good stout for those who aren’t into dark beer. harrisoni (18819) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2005

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.

A Mes rate. Cask at The Magnet. Stockport.sm89walt (2070) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 16, 2010
Mahogany black with a decent beige head and lots of lace. Full on burnt malt, smoke, bitter coffee and chocolate aroma. Flavour is similar. Big smoke, plenty of rubbery stuff, just a lick of hops and some unexpected herbal notes. Something just that little bit different about. Drinks like somethng that is part way between a mild and a porter. An interesting brew indeed.
Cask - CASK Pub & Kitchen, London. A very dark brown beer - almost black - with a small, creamy and lasting tan head leaving a full, even lacing. Big initial hits of coffee & chocolate, more notes of roasted malt, dark fruit wood & smoke. Roasted malt, dark fruit roast/smoke with a dry coffee bitterness in the finish. Medium length finish, medium body and soft mouthfeel.
