pretty mild and light bodied stout from grandridge thats a fair beer, but doesnt compare to alot of the other beers in their range. this is a stout thats best suited to a black and tan, so its quite interesting that they use hat lifter for this purpose also.

bit lighter in color for the usual stout, bit still brown in color. light beige head with little retention. theres not a lot of aromas in there, tho still pleasant enuff. very light roasted flavor, with some chocolate, and and a mild woody tinge. flavor is chocolate, coffee and a hint of licorice. not as robust as i like my stouts to be, its still pretty smooth and easy to drink. finishes on the sweet side, and lacks hop presence throughout the beer. the bitterness is there, but as with the rest of the beer, too understated.

very mellow for the style, hat lifter is really a bit of a misnomer. it certainly fails to raise my rafters. that said its not a bad brew, but these guys can do, and have done, much better than this.

Average roasty stout. Nice aroma first up, but perhaps a bit thin on the palate, nice burnt coffee flavour and bitter finish, but i think it lacks a bit of body, but decent.
