look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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

Pours a ruby black colour (dark chestnut brown held to the light) with a small tan head.

Roasted malts on the nose and a little dried fruits and coffee.

Taste wise, again roasted malts, a little coffe and chocolate and a smidgen of raisens/dried fruit.

Medium bodied stout with a dry aftertaste. The final 'lip smack' of the aftertaste brought a root beer/germoline flavour to me !!!

Overall - OK - not a world beater, would have again no qualm's but would look to seek out other stouts first!
