Thumbing through her grandfather’s books, Dorothy came upon a recipe for a wonderful stout with intense roasted barley flavours and a dry, bitter finish.
Together with her friend Jimmy, our head brewer, she created this dark, full-bodied number. It boasts roasted coffee notes and plenty of hop flavour.

This is a great stout, in my eyes because of the pretty high level of bitterness. It looks "stouty" as well, nice head.

minutemat (6232) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2017
Cask @ Salopian, Shrewsbury. Pours dark, small creamy tan head. Aroma has some cocoa hints, lightly sweet, soft roast. Taste is smooth, chocolatey, soft grains, fruity nods. Light, smooth, straightforward stout.

Bottle from Booths in Kirkby Lonsdale. Appearance - opaque black with a lovely fawn head. Nose - light chocolate and malt biscuits. Creamy. Taste - chocolate milk shake and again malt biscuits. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - decent session strength stout.

50cl bottle at home from Gloucester Services Farm Shop. Nose is roasted malt, bread. Body is pitch black, head is small, beige, fizzy, mostly diminishing, good lacing. Aroma is toast, mild coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malt. Light sweet, medium to heavy bitter. Finish is medium lasting roasty heavy bitter. Medium body, dry texture, average carbonation. Easy dessert beer, simple, nice one.

AnG_BrgNor (819) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown with small brown head. Malty aroma with coffee and some dark chocolate. The taste is sweet and pretty much like the aroma. Its slightly bitter in the end witch is quite nice after the sweetness.

AaronTDubs (500) - - MAR 12, 2016
Dark brown color. Medium carbonation. Very weak aromas of chocolate, minerals, generic yeast smell. Dry palate with coffee, herbal bitterness, and a burned finish. A bit of fruitiness as it warms up. Not incredibly complex. Surely drinkable, but not special.

allmyvinyl (11181) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2015
Bottle from Booths, Penwortham. Pours clear dark brown with a short-lived beige head. Aromas of liquorice, light roast coffee. Taste is bitter, more liquorice. Thin finish.

Bamsen78 (5617) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2015
Bottle @ Øllets Dag, Kolding. Pours cloudy very dark brown with small beige head. Clear arom of roast, malt and hops. Mild, bitter, roasty and joppy flavour with notes of yeast and touches of nuts. Fruity hints. Roasty aftertaste. Rather watery. Drinkable but nothing really special.

fdomig (1032) - München, GERMANY - AUG 8, 2015
500ml bottle at Sternbräu Rankweil. Aroma is light coffee, malt. Appearance is black with a light brown-ish head. Taste is sweet and light bitter. Soft carbonation. Light dry. Good.

braystacey (9) - - JUN 17, 2015 does not count
Dark coffee and roasted flavours but quite a light body. Head size and retention not much cop. Quite bitter on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
