August 2016 - Cask handpull at GBBF 2016, as ’Wibblers Crafty Stoat’. As always, it’s hard to turn down a wibbler. Black with a brown hue, foamy tan head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is burnt and ashy, dark chocolate, strong roast barley and chicory with an astringent bitter finish. Mmm, nice. I like ’em burnt. A full flavoured stout.

Bottle 500ml (AbM)
Dark ruby color, big cloudy brownish head, lace. Chocolaty sweetish, toasted and a bit vegetably aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Very salty, liquerice front. Then hops and roasted maltyness. Probably gains from cask conditioning, now a bit hard mouthfeel. Anyhow over the average traditional English stout.
