Cask half-pint on 4th Dec 2016 at The Crown Inn, Oakengates. Black bodied, tanned head: proper looking Stout. Mild chocolate and liquorice notes in both the nose and taste, no Tea like esters or flavours for me: just an easy drinking semi-dry Stout. Enjoyed it. berkshirejohn (6618) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2016

Cask HP at Hamilton Hall London as ’Tring Tea Kettle Stout’, 4.7%. Opaque black with a creamy brown head. Aroma is ashy, some coffee. Body is smooth and creamy with low carbonation. Taste is ashy, milk chocolate, liquorice, toffee sweetness, light resin, breathy ash and milky instant coffee. Not very bitter but has a long finish. Classic British stout. Quite rich and slow drinking, but a nice one to take slowly. Parmenion777 (342) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2016 Pours a deep dark brown with a small thick light tan head. Roastedj malt, chocolate aroma with a touch of coffee. Roasted malt and light bitter chocolate flavour. Pleasant bitter sweet balance but lacks depth of flavour, weak mouthfeel. Fin (10841) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2016
Cask at The Hopbine, Cambridge, Monday 5th September 2016 Pours almost black in colour, quite cool (temp) but tastes good for being a little cooler. Like a light milk stout, light creamy milkiness, soft mouthfeel, really pleasant beer. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6
