Poured from a 500ml bottle into a dimpled pint mug (and then part poured into my stew!)

Pours a dark black colour, with a decent off-white head.

Smells quite rich and dark.

Tastes dark and malty - fairly bittersweet and rather dry, with some alcohol mixed in with dark, rich fruits.

Overall a decent enough stout.

Hand pulled half pint at The Cock Hotel, Wellington: a well known real ale pub in Shropshire.

Lovely dark body, almost jet black: on top a thin head of tan coloured foam, the head staying as it left lacing down the glass.

Sweet chestnuts roasting over an open fire? Well almost, it did have a roasted nutlike aroma with some dark chocolate stirred in.

The taste was a good blend of flavours, that dark chocolate again, some liquorice and malty molasses, all very slightly smoked. Not a sweet stout, but although it had a dry finish you wouldn’t call it a bitter stout either, an in between one then!

Body could have been richer and deeper, but at 4.5% ABV it held its own, just.

A pleasant night cap on the evening it was reviewed, not sure I’d have a session on it though.
