Cask conditioned handpump Racehorse Northampton. A black stout with a good off-white bubbly head. Some slightly roasty malt notes in the aroma together with a dash of vegetation. Roasty in the mouth and in spite of it needing more depth, there’s an unexpected dash of citrus at the end. Hmmm. Svesse (8743) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2012
(Cask at Carpenter’s Arms, Marble Arch, London, 21 April 2012) Black colour with foamy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of coffee, chocolate, ashes and roasted malt. Malty, roasted taste with coffee, chocolate, dark bread and a balanced coffee bitterness in the finish. Rather light body, quite dry. Highly drinkable and quite nice.

A day after St. Patrick’s Day! Almost opaque brown color, creamy brown head. Quite weak nose: just a bit of chocolate, lactose and toasted malts. Silky soft palate. Coffee, toasted malts and lactose in the flavor. Lingering coffee and some hops in the aftertaste. It’s a bit like Guinness with milk stout kick. Good but light.
Cask at The Churchill Tavern, Ramsgate: Opaque, black beer with a small tan head. Roasted malt and a nice hit of chocolate. This is actually a pretty tasty stout and completely caught me off guard, well done Wychwood. Not a patch on the ’old’ Hobgoblin though...

Cask handpull at The Pheasant, Ashford. Black with brown edges, lasting cream head. Some nice choc, on an ok aroma. Light in mouth, more a roasted dark mild than a stout. Quite roast on the finish. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask at Baker Street Hobgoblin. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2010
Almost black mahogany coloured with a thin beige head. Slight eggy sulphurous but a decent dark malt base keeps it on track. Plenty of liquorice, lots of burnt malt and a decent bitterness in the finish. Better than their usual rubbish but no show stopper.
