Pours oxblood black with no head in spite of vigourous pouring. Nose is smoke and candy floss. Peaty burnt caramel malts with a touch of ash. Hops are earthy, spicy with a bit of resin. Dry linger, medium verging on full body, chewy and oily with a wheat smoothness.

The barman said this was a "bottled cask" - does that explain the lack of head?

A roast-heavy real ale stout, about as heavy as it could be and still be drinkable.
