3.43/5  rDev -0.6%

Cask dispense into a UK pint pot at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green, Feb '12.

Pours to a rich mid black colour with a small off-white/beige head. (Head lasted fairly well throughout drinking!)

Dry roasted malt aroma with background smell of bitter chocolate and a tiny whiff of coffee, but definately more cocoa heavy than coffee!

Tastes pretty much mirrored the above stated flavours, though I would add a little hint of dried berry fruit in the taste and also quite a sweet flavour (malt bases) that the bitter chocolate smell didn't indicate!

Mouthfeel was a little watery for my liking and not robust enough! Dryish aftertaste.

Overall - an OK stout but no world beater - will search elsewhere for 'stouty' excellence, but would have this again if faced with it over a bar!

Cask stout poured into a Pint glass @The Castle, Holland Park . London)
Appearance... black beer with head colour beige of 1 finger aprox

Aroma... roasted malt, little touch of caramel. malty aroma but very light

Taste... Sugar cane flavour notes and smoked malt , but not too much sweetness

Mouthfeel... medium body and soft carbonation
Overall... a decent ale, hops are present in a light style. Nothing to remember
