Hand-pulled half-pint in The Station Inn, Oakengates on 6th Dec 13.

Black and Stout like (what a surprise): Almost Jet Black in fact with a thin tanned foam covering.

Malty, dark chocolate nose and taste: semi-bitter front and back, nice almost burnt feel to the flavour: a decent Stout on all counts.

A very dark brew with just a hint of head (thankfully the sparkler had been removed) but with lacing that lasted all the way down the glass.It really looked the part.

An aroma is of roasted grains and a hint of coffee perhaps.

It tasted as good as it looked - beautifully balanced between the roast grains and hops. Lovely and substantial mouthfeel but this means it would be hard work to sink more than a few pints at a sitting.

Had it cask-conditioned at Sean Bolans in Baltimore. Never heard of the beer but was pleasantly suprised. Pours a dark deep black color with little to no head. Smell was overwhelming of dark roasted malts (like smelling a mocha latte) backed up by some lovely fresh aroma hops. The taste was equally impressive... a deep rich roasty flavor with a hint of chocolate and a nice bitter kick to it. One of the better stouts I've had in a while.

Pours the deepest ruby in colour, almost black in appearance, with a big creamy tan head that leaves buckets of lacing.

The aroma is of roasted malts, coffee, winter fruits, dark berries and a warming cinnamon finish.

The taste is also good - smoky and roasted malts and hops, coffee, blackberries, and a slight spicy kick. Finish is very roasted malts and quite warming. Mouthfeel is a little heavy but very smooth, drinks excellently.

I'd fancy this beer to be at least on par with the stout greats, this is a real winner.
